|Pan-seared Chicken Spinach Salad|
I love to cook! Even more importantly I LOVE to eat too! LOL
I love it when the weather gets warmer and all of the fresh fruits & veggies are available, and a summer time salad is one of my absolute favorites! Either getting the vegetables fresh from the garden or the local farmer's market just makes it feel like Summer to me. :)
Anyway, today I thought I would share one of my favorite fast easy lunches (or dinners) with you all.
This one is a really simple salad recipe that is fast, healthy and delicious!
Pan-Seared Chicken Spinach Salad
Ingredients: (I did it for one person but you can modify it for more.)
1 Cup Fresh Baby Spinach Leaves (Washed)
1 4oz Thin Sliced Chicken Breast
1 Celery Stalk
1 Roma Tomato
1 Tsp Olive Oil
McCormick's CA Garlic Salt
Spice Depot Jojo Potato Seasoning (I can usually find this at our local Big Lots.)
Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad dressing
Wash Spinach leaves & place in a bowl. Set aside for later.
Add olive oil to pan & heat oil on medium-high heat.
Once the pan is hot, add salt & pepper to Chicken breast & pan sear on one side for about 2 minutes or until you see the chicken starting to brown slightly in color.
Flip chicken over in pan & sear on other side. Sprinkle Garlic Salt & Jojo Seasoning over chicken & turn over, repeat for other side after cooking a couple minutes.
When chicken is cooked remove from pan & let rest 5-10 minutes so the juices all settle back into the chicken.
Dice your tomato & celery & add to your spinach leaves.
Once your chicken breast has rested, dice chicken into bite-sized pieces & add to the spinach mixture. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top of salad & add a drizzle of Balsamic Vinaigrette to finish off.
Tada! That's it! A quick, healthy & delicious salad that is perfect any time of year!
