Chicken, Spinach and Garlic

This one only did take me thirty minutes. I timed it.

I put up a pot of water for pasta. Then I cubed a pound of boneless chicken thighs, and browned them off. Meanwhile, I chopped up a large Spanish onion and took out the end of a package of frozen spinach. I added about five inches of garlic kielbasa, in 3/4" slices to the chicken. When the chicken was brown, I took it out of the pot, put in a little more vegetable oil and the onions. I put the pasta (a short twisty whole wheat) into the boiling water. I added bay leaves, five cloves of minced garlic and a few grinds of nutmeg and black pepper to the onions, plus a little water. When the onions were brown, I put in the frozen spinach and then the chicken and whatever juices had accumulated. The pasta was cooked, so I drained it. When the spinach thawed, the pasta was done and drained. Serve the chicken over the noodles.


That sounds far too good. I've only been back at college for three days, and I'm already in garlic withdrawl. Midwest food=blandness to the nth degree.

Oh, you poor thing.

I've never experienced non-kosher Midwestern food, and we like our garlic - it sounds. Bland.

It is bland. There's a reason I brought spices along. But yeah, I miss my family's cooking. We may live in Ohio, but Dad is from Montana, and Mom is from the Northeast. Therefore, spices exist and are used with almost everything. Garlic is a staple, not an option.

That is so weird, I had chicken and spinach for supper tonight too, but not with pasta.

My husband requested pasta. He got pasta. I left the choice of starch up to him. Rice would have worked as well, I think.


It sounds lovely! And super duper easy!

Oh, it so was. But you know me. I don't do anything hard.
