The Healthy Chicken and Mushrooms Recipe for When You Are Busy

Posted by cleanteam

Sometimes we want a really great meal without all the hassle of a complicated recipe. A simple, yet fantastic recipe like our healthy chicken with sauteed mushrooms and spinach, can be the most enjoyable meal. It’s super easy to make, has very few ingredients and tastes delicious, what more could we ask for? We topped our healthy chicken with a vegetable medley full of Phytonutrients, creating a cleanse-friendly and delicious grain-free dish.

What Makes Our Healthy Chicken so Healthy?

We bake our chicken in this recipe, which is a great way to ensure that all the spices and natural flavors will absorb into the chicken. Baking also makes it moist and flavorful, without having to add any extra unhealthy dips or sauces to the chicken. Chicken is packed with essential nutrients that our bodies need, without most of the unhealthy qualities of other meats, such as red meat (which isn’t allowed on the cleanse). Chicken is packed with protein and phosphorus, helping us to build stronger bones and muscles. It also contains vitamin B and vitamin D helping to boost our immunity and increase our calcium absorption.

We Topped Our Healthy Chicken With a Nutrient-Rich Vegetable Medley

Our vegetable medley pairs well with our healthy chicken and adds an extra kick of good-for-you nutrients. We use spinach as a rich source of iron, which helps in the production of red blood cells in our body. Along with being a great source of iron, spinach is full of vitamin A and vitamin C.

Mushrooms have some amazing health benefits and are even used in some holistic medicine practices. Mushrooms contain beta-glucan, which is  great for your immune system, helping to protect us against  colds and the flu. Along with being filled with antioxidants and nutrients mushrooms add texture and savory flavor to our healthy chicken dish.
