Default Skinny Chicken, Spinach, Artichoke Skillet

Well, this was definitely fast and easy, especially since I used rotisserie chicken.

Plus, all I had to buy for it was a bag of fresh spinach (the "adult" kind, not the baby kind that has less flavor, IMO).

I see lots of recipes using the same ingredients, only with cream and/or cream cheese, and other fattening stuff added. I'm thinking this recipe needs some of that.

It was just okay. Scroll down for recipe.

I would use these ingredients again, but play around with herbs and seasonings.

Any suggestions???

Hmmm, I'm looking at the photo, thinking maybe sliced pimento-stuffed olives instead of capers.

Or, keep the capers and just slice up some jarred pimentos?

I'd add something for a little heat, like jalapenos.
Also garlic and perhaps tarragon.

Will you share the recipe?

I agree with red pepper flakes for some heat.

And fresh garlic.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Sorry, I meant to attach the recipe I used.

Here it is. Oh, and I agree on the heat - red pepper flakes sounds great! I'll add some to the leftovers.

Along with a bit of heat, you needs an umami bomb. I would add a tablespoon of tomato paste to the middle of the pan, and stir it a minute to darken it, before you add the liquids. Some other ideas would be anchovy, mushrooms, cheese, etc. You could also add a little grated Parmesan over the top. A small bit of hard cheese is still 'skinny', but adds a punch, and would go well with those artichokes.



You've got salt in the capers, acid in the lemon, round it out with a bit of heat and umami.
