Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts 4 equal portions
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 5 ounces sun-dried tomatoes 8 ounce jar drained and roughly chopped
  • 8 ounces artichoke hearts 12 ounce jar or can drained and roughly chopped
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup sliced, black olives
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta
  • sliced fresh basil or parsley

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the onion and cook until they start to soften, about 3 or 4 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook stirring constantly for an additional minute.
  • Mix the salt, pepper, oregano and basil together in a small bowl.
  • Sprinkle half of the spice mixture over the chicken breasts.
  • Place the chicken breasts in the skillet, sprinkle with the remaining seasoning and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Flip the chicken over and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add the artichokes, tomatoes, lemon juice and zest.
  • Wiggle the vegetables down into the crevices. Add the spinach leaves, again stirring to get it down into the skillet.
  • Cook until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes, and the chicken is cooked through. (165 degrees)
  • Serve garnished with sliced olives, feta cheese and chopped fresh basil.

Notes

  • Substitute 1 1/2 cups diced, fresh tomatoes for the sun-dried if desired.
  • If you like things spicy, add crushed red pepper flakes to the seasoning.
  • Substitute chopped Italian Parsley if fresh Basil is not available.
  • For Whole30 & Paleo omit the Feta cheese. Sprinkle with Nutritional Dry Yeast for a cheesy flavor.
