Leafy Leftovers.

day-to-day. eats.

Hunger can lead to desperation… and grumpiness.  It’s a proven fact.  I had to think fast one afternoon when hunger pains struck and I hadn’t gone grocery shopping yet!  All I had in the fridge was leftover rotisserie chicken.  And spinach.  Luckily 1 + 1 didn’t turn out to be such a bad combo.  Add some olive oil, seasoning, and chunks of vine ripe tomato and you get a pretty filling meal.

Here are the ingredients I used:

  • Leftover rotisserie chicken, cut into smaller pieces
  • 1-2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2-3 cups of fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 vine ripe tomato, diced into 1 in. chunks
  • Salt, pepper, garlic and/or onion powder to taste

I heated the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and added the chicken pieces.  After a minute or two, lower the heat to medium-low and slowly add the spinach leaves, allowing them to wilt a little before adding more.  Lastly, I added the tomatoes and combined seasoning.  Stir and cook about 3-5 minutes until all ingredients are warmed through.  Quick and easy meal; about 10 minutes from start to finish.
