Ellie Krieger's Easy Chicken Dinner Is the Stepping Stone You Need Right Now
Did you resolve to be a "new you" in the kitchen this year? Cook along with Ellie (for free!) as she makes this healthy weeknight solution on the Food Network Kitchen app.
It might feel profound or even easy to say "My resolution is to cook more healthy meals this year." But goals are not accomplished in platitudes or big ideas — they're accomplished in the nitty gritty, the tangible steps you take to make them a reality. In other words, if you want to eat more healthfully or you want to cook more, you don't need more willpower or desire — you need to be armed with the right recipes.
Here's where Ellie Krieger's Balsamic Chicken with Baby Spinach comes in — she'll be teaching a class on this dish LIVE on Food Network Kitchen this Sunday at 6 p.m. EST, and we've unlocked the class so it's FREE even if you're not yet a Food Network Kitchen subscriber.
This recipe is simple (you can have dinner on the table in under 20 minutes if you're efficient!) but strategic. First, it relies on pantry and fridge staples — we bet you have chicken breasts and a can of tomatoes lying around. Plus, it's a protein, a side and a sauce all cooked in one pan. The chicken gets browned, then the spinach gets wilted, and then finally balsamic vinegar, chicken broth and tomatoes come together to make a sauce. Easy, but almost magical. And the ingredients taste great together and also make you feel good.
So stop thinking about what to make, start with this essential recipe and you'll have taken the first step (always the hardest!) toward cooking more healthy dinners in 2020. Join Ellie this Sunday January 5, 2020 at 6 p.m. EST (she'll even answer your questions in real time!) to cook with us — and feel on top of the world at the top of the year.
