Chicken, sweet potato & carrot purée, spinach, and sautéed vegetables

Healthy eating is an important part of overall health and something I try to maintain, but without being completely fanatic. One of my main goals is to add variety to my diet, as I often tend to make the same thing over and over again (and I don’t think I’m the only one!). There are a few things I always try to keep in mind when it comes to my overall diet, including adding a variety of different colored fruits and vegetables, a source of protein, whole grain products, dairy products, and to drink water instead of sugary drinks.

Anyway, if you are in need for dinner inspiration, look no further – try this delicious chicken dish!

Ingredients

1 chicken fillet- 3 carrots – 1/2 sweet potato – Butter – A splash of cooking cream- Salt & pepper – Lemon juice – A handful of spinach- Red + yellow peppers –  1 green leek

Directions

You can decide whether you want to make the chicken in the oven or on the stove, but a pan-seared chicken breast seasoned with my favorite seasoning and a generous knob of butter is my preferred technique. The resulting chicken has a golden-crisp exterior with a still-juicy interior. For a little extra taste, add a splash of lemon juice at the end.

Peel and trim the sweet potato and carrots and cut them into pieces. Put them in a saucepan, add water and boil until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain the remaining water, add a splash of cooking cream, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet, heat butter over high heat. Add the vegetables, and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes, or until they begin to soften. Turn down the heat to low and sauté for 2 more minutes. Cool of vegetables before placing on top of a handful spinach

Enjoy!
