Palak Chicken recipe or the Spinach Chicken recipe. A very healthy and tasty dish made with aromatic spices.
This tasty Palak Chicken recipe is almost just too perfect for these last few winter days (I mean if you would consider that a winter here. The weather has been perfect, so no complaints). Thick and satisfying curry with really mellow, warm, earthy flavors, plus drizzled with a bit of olive oil and a splash of various spices, this Palak Chicken recipe will surely make a perfect accompaniment for any dish. My choice for making this dish was using the boneless chicken. I am getting all mushy over my love for the boneless meat, but that is a strong favorite for the kids and moi! You can totally, totally, use the bone in chicken if you so desire. And what can I say about the Spinach. I am sure Popeye has surely hit the point already and I don’t have to elaborate on the health benefits of it. Always use fresh palak for making this dish but if it is not accessible to you easily, then you can use the frozen one. Just make sure you drain your spinach really well. Thawed frozen spinach is full of water and you will want to blot it as much as you can.
You will have to fry the onions and then add the spices and sautee them really well. Add in the chicken and the spinach and cook till done. Yes, that’s it. Simple and easy. Delicious and mouth watering. You can shred the chicken like I have done or simply leave the chicken pieces intact for the Palak Chicken recipe or the Spinach Chicken recipe. I have shredded it so that you get the taste of the spinach and the chicken in every single bite and I do not have to worry if my kids are omitting the palak.
