By Saturday night we never seem to have any food left in the fridge. Which makes it really easy to justify eating out for the majority of the weekend. But since I’m eating healthy and definitely not eating out again until after the wedding, I have to be a little bit more creative about making a healthy dinner on Saturday night. So tonight I defrosted some chicken, sautéed up some spinach, and made some Israeli couscous. And it was a delicious, super fast, and healthy dinner for one.
Chicken, Garlicy Spinach, and Couscous
1 chicken breast
1.5 tbsp. EVOO
1/4 cup Israeli couscous (cooked in 3/4 cup water; 3:1 ratio)
1 tsp. smart balance
2 big handfuls of spinach
1 tsp. crushed garlic
1/2 tsp, red pepper flake
Salt & pepper to taste
I cooked up the couscous in water with a little Smart Balance.
Sautéed up my spinach in 1/2 tbsp. of EVOO then added garlic and red pepper flake.
I sliced my chicken and sautéed in 1 tbsp. EVOO (drain the excess oil when you’re chicken is all cooked though).
When everything was cooked I tossed it in a bowl and inhaled the whole thing.
