I’ve been looking for more easy recipes that include vegetables I like, and this one’s got plenty.
Heat a little vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook a package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs for two minutes on each side.
Then add the following:
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
- 1 package frozen corn kernels, thawed
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 cup chicken broth (use homemade for more flavor)
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons garlic
If you want to make the dish more substantial, also add 1½ cups uncooked brown rice and ½ cup of water when you add the veggies.
Bring it to a boil, then cover and simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through (and the rice is tender, if you used it). Add salt and pepper to taste.
It warms up wonderfully. If you already have leftover chicken, just make the vegetable part, and put in however much chopped chicken you want when you eat it. I even like it for a substantial healthy breakfast!
