BBQ Chicken Tenders and Rice over Steamed Spinach

Makes about 3-4 servings


What you need:


6-8 chicken tenders

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

1 large bag Spinach leaves

Olive oil

Salt

Pepper

1 box chicken flavored rice (we used Goya chicken flavored rice)

Lemon/Lemon Juice (optional)


What to do:


Cook rice according to package directions. 


In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil medium-high heat. Season chicken tenders with salt and pepper. 


Cook chicken for 3-5 minutes until lightly browned, flip chicken and cook for another 5 minutes. 


Add BBQ sauce to cover chicken and reduce heat to low. Cook for 8-10 minutes until chicken is done.


In another large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat until hot. Add spinach leaves. Toss to coat.


Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and let the spinach leaves wilt for 2 minutes. 


Remove lid and toss. If you want the leaves to be more wilted, let the spinach cook longer.


To plate:


Place wilted spinach leaves on the plate. Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice onto the spinach. Add a layer of rice. Top with 2 BBQ chicken tenders.
