Chicken with Creamy Spinach & Parmesan Sauce | Slimming Friendly Recipe


Slimming Friendly Chicken with Creamy Spinach & Parmesan Sauce, with sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms.

So firstly, a confession. This dish isn't all that low in calories or syns, but I do feel as though it is worth it! I was searching for chicken inspiration on Pinterest, saw this recipe, and had it gave me the inspiration to make my own version.

I have tried to save on syns as much as possible, and you could save yourself even more by swapping sundried tomatoes for cherry tomatoes and reducing the amount of Parmesan.

I served it with some brown rice, and it was extremely delicious. I really love having rice with a creamy sauce.

Any time I used Spinach it always looks like I have added loads in, but in reality, it wilts down to almost nothing! So my advice is to smash in as much as you possibly can! The more the better.
