Teriyaki Chicken with Spinach

chicken

The Man chose this meal.  It seemed too simple, too bland.  He found it in Men’s Health 1001 Muscle Meals.  I was pleasantly surprised that something so simple could still be quite the satisfying meal.  Honestly, I was worried that I wouldn’t like it so I may have served up a loaf of rosemary bread with olive oil for dipping as an appetizer.

Anyways, it was good, super healthy, and a quick meal to fix.  All three of us enjoyed it and it will probably become a bi-weekly meal.

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 1/2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp tomato paste

4 boneless skinless chicken thighs

A few sprinkles of garlic powder

1 tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)

*If you have more than 4 thighs then you should double the sauce*

Directions:

Heat broiler to high.  Put soy sauce, honey, garlic powder and tomato paste in medium bowl and stir together.

Add chicken and turn to coat all surfaces.

Place chicken on foil lined pan under broiler.

Cook chicken until well browned, about 8 minutes.  Flip and brown the other side until cooked through, about 4 minutes.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

12 oz fresh spinach, stems removed

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp sesame seeds

Directions:

Heat broiler.  Cut an 18″x18″ square of foil.  Spray with oil.

Put spinach on foil, spray with oil, and toss with salt.  Fold over and seal edges to form a well sealed pouch.

Cook until wilted, about 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper and top with sesame seeds.
