Recently, my family has decided that we're going to eat a healthier variety of foods. We're going to try new things and give it a chance. In doing so we found that we all like spinach. Now the pickiest member of the family is now eating a huge variety and I love it because it allows me to get much more creative in the kitchen.
McCormick.com has a vast list of recipes you can choose from and they know what the trends are in cooking. They used Google data to create a list of the top ten searches from 2012 and matched them with easy to create healthy recipes and I chose the Herb Chicken Skillet with Spinach and Tomatoes. I love cooking with McCormick spices, the spices I'm most familiar with are the McCormick Cumin and McCormic Chili spices and I just puchased a Costco size of them.
For the Herb Chicken Skillet recipe I had to use some of the McCormick spices I'm less familiar with, but that's the whole point of trying something new. I used the McCormick Basil leaves, McCormick ground black pepper, the McCormick garlic powder and the McCormick Oregeno leaves. I LOVE the smell of Oregeno and I've found that I like to pump up the flavors so I always use more than what's callled for. YUM! But here in this post I wanted to be sure to include the recipe the way McCormick made it so here is the Herb Chicken Skillet with Spinach and Tomatoes.
2 tablespoons oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon McCormic Basil Leaves
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper, Ground
1/2 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon McCormick Oregano Leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (6 ounces) baby spinach leaves
Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 10 minutes or until browned. Add onion; cook and stir 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in tomatoes, water and seasonings.
Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 3 minutes or until heated through.Stir in spinach; cook 2 minutes or until spinach begins to wilt
The only thing I did differently is I didn't use an onion at all and I doubled the garlic and oregeno. Now, I get to do a giveaway.
