Chicken With White Beans and Baby Spinach

“I found this recipe in Readers Digest in an ad for Promise butter. I tweaked it to fit my DH and my tastes and it came out quite good. It's a great low fat, healthy dish which is really more like soup and is great on a cold winter night. It's also real quick to make after coming home from working all day. Putting it here on Zaar so I can find it again.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut chicken breasts into strips and season with thyme and black pepper.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoons butter in skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Add chicken to the butter and brown over medium high heat about 3 - 4 minutes.
  4. Move chicken to side and add 1/2 tablespoons of butter. Add minced garlic and onion (note I use onion powder only because my DH can't eat real onions - I know how awful to not cook with real onions).
  5. Saute 1 minute and then add broth and white wine. I used Pinot Grigio because that's what I had on hand.
  6. Bring to a boil and reduce heat - simmer 5 minutes.
  7. Stir in beans which have been rinsed and drained and the spinach leaves.
  8. Simmer 5 more minutes until chicken cooked through.
