Grilled Mushroom and Spinach Chicken

Grilled Mushroom and Spinach Chicken

This Mushroom and Spinach Chicken is so easy and totally delicious.  The key is to prep your chicken marinade the day before (or up to 2 days before) and then let dinner happen superfast with a quick grill and saute of the vegetables.  Tip: I like to get my Italian Seasoning from Costco for recipes like this that require a large quantity

Ingredients

Directions:

  1. For the chicken, combine the olive oil, garlic, sea salt, black pepper, Italian seasoning in a gallon zip lock bag.
  2. Add the chicken and marinate for up to 24 hours. I would recommend at least an hour.
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on a grill over medium heat for 6 – 8 minutes per side.
  4. While the chicken is grilling, prepare the spinach mushroom topping.
  5. Add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat.
  6. Add the onions and mushrooms, sauté 5-7 minutes, add the garlic, sauté for 1 minute, add the spinach and sprinkle the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper over the top.
  7. Saute for an additional 3-4 minutes, then turn the heat off and set the skillet aside.
  8. Once the chicken is grilled, slice, place on a plate and top with the mushroom spinach topping.
