Mmmmm…I made this chicken on Saturday on a whim. After a minute or so in to making it (i.e. taking the chicken out of the fridge and scouring through the cupboard to see what ingredients I had) I knew exactly where this recipe was going and what I wanted to make of it.
Red wine and honey. Can you think of two better ingredients? While when cooked with chicken they become divine. The chicken is not sweet but surprisingly savoury. I really do not like sweet flavoured savoury food (like fruit on pizza or in salads). The honey just adds for a nice caramelization on the chicken. And the spinach is so light next to the heavier meat so it’s perfect together. We ate it with some baguette for lunch!
You will need:
- 2 chicken breasts
- 3 teaspoons of paprika
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 teaspoons of honey
- 75mL or approx. 1/4 cup of red wine
- 2 diced shallots (or green onions)
- 6 very loose cups of washed spinach
Now do this:
