Created this recipe as a way to use leftover chicken and make a quick healthy dinner and it was a huge hit, even with my picky eaters! Can be served as-is for low-carb meal or over angel hair pasta.

  • Melt butter in the same skillet; cook and stir mushrooms and garlic until mushrooms are lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Mix tomato and chicken into mushroom mixture; season with salt. Cook and stir, 2 to 3 minutes. Add spinach and gently stir until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can add in Italian seasoning or rosemary to make this more of an Italian dish. You can also substitute roughly 2 teaspoons of store-bought minced garlic for the fresh garlic.

Very easy and tasty with a few changes. First I need to mention this recipe isn't enough for 4 servings it is enough for 2. I added Italian seasoning since another reviewer mentioned it needed more flavor. I cooked the chicken while cooking the garlic mushrooms in a different pan. I added a drained can of diced garlic basil oregano tomatoes and included the spinach last. My husband's plate had the chicken mine was without. Read More

My family went crazy over this recipe even the finicky eaters! Cutting the oil ans butter in half did not affect the taste at all just the amount of fat and carbs This has become a family favorite! Read More
