Chicken-Spinach-Bean Skillet

Ok my mom threw together something like this last night and was telling me about it so I had to try something along these lines -- turned out so delish I had to share!!  It's super healthy - and pretty quick and simple to make! 

8oz raw chicken breast tenderloin - chopped
a couple slices of onions - chopped
5 medium mushrooms - chopped
1 cup baby or flat leaf spinach - torn/rough chopped
1/2 cup black beans - drained/rinsed
1/2 cup white kidney beans - drained/rinsed
cumin (to taste)
red pepper (to taste)
chili powder (to taste)
mrs dash table blend (to taste)

Sautee chicken, mushrooms, & onion - with cumin & mrs dash - until chicken is cooked through.  Add in spinach, and cook until wilted (about a minute).  Remove from heat and place in a bowl.  Add black beans & white kidney beans to frying pan - along with some cumin, red pepper, and chili powder - sautee for a couple minutes until heated through.  Add to spinach/chicken/mushroom/onion mixture in bowl, and mix.  Dig in and enjoy.  This is delish topped with a couple tablespoons salsa!  Makes 2 servings.

  1. Can you post a bigger picture? That sounds great, and I've love to profile this recipe in my Recipe of the day pic, and also pin it to my Pinterest board.

    Thanks Mary - it sounds yummy!

    1. Thanks so much Maura -- I posted a larger pic for you!! :)

  2. Pinning it - and making this sometime this week! Seems like an easy "weekinight" recipe too - and one that you can fiddle with the seasonings with to really custom tailor to any taste. Thanks Mary!
