I had a busy day today mopping up our wooden floors from all the snow mess. Our downstairs has no carpet, none. The wooden floors that Paul put in are gorgeous, but not when their tracked up with muddy footprints. So the mop and bucket and I had a date, but then, you can’t have clean floors and not dust. And well, why not wipe down the stove and the counters in the kitchen? Somehow, just mopping the floors snowballed into an all out clean fest. Before I knew it, it was time for dinner. After all the cleaning I did, I wanted dinner to be fast, delicious and with minimum dishes to wash. Chicken and Spinach Skillet Dinner fit those requirements to a “T”.
This skillet dinner was sooooo good! It has a nice fresh taste and was very easy to put together. I didn’t feel like messing with side dishes so I served it with long grain rice that I cooked in chicken broth. Perfection! Paul loved it and I was out of the kitchen in no time at all. Chicken and Spinach Skillet Dinner, definitely a keeper, homemade goodness from our house to yours, ENJOY!
