Easy Chicken with Mushrooms

So I got crazy cooking yesterday, spent most of my day in the kitchen which only means you guys are in for a treat in the upcoming posts! I realised that my last few entries took quite a bit of time to make and that wasn’t really in line with my initial promise, but you’ll have to forgive me since I do get caught up in meals that take longer to cook when I have the time for it.
For example, yesterday I decided to make two quite long cooking dishes, but I will not be posting them today as I need to tell you about the simplest recipes too! This is one literally nobody can get terribly wrong. This summer, my sister and I were coming back from watching the tennis at Wimbledon (after having spent the whole day in the heat and waking up at 5am to queue). So, after we were done with seeing all the matches we wanted to see, even though that is exactly when the outside temperature was perfect for anything outdoors, we decided we would visit a friend that lives 5 minutes away from the courts. She made something similar to this dish that evening and it felt really good. It’s one of those things that will be done in 15 minutes and remind you how amazing simple food is!
Another one of the amazing features of this dish is that it features spinach. I know quite a few people that do not like creamy spinach (one of my favourites). However, spinach is incredibly rich in minerals and
nutrients of all sorts and should thus be eaten quite a bit. If it was good for Popeye, who are the rest of us to complain about it?  So get those non-creamy spinach eaters around this easy meal.
As for the mushrooms, I used white, but pick your favourite.

Easy Chicken with Mushrooms

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15-20 minutes

1 small onion
400g chicken breast
400g mushrooms
2 handfuls fresh spinach
Sweat the finely diced onion in a little oil and add chicken breast strips. Let it sizzle until the chicken gets some colour on all sides (make sure all the pink is gone) and then add the mushrooms (chopped according to you preference, I did them in quarters). Leave on stove until both the meat and the mushrooms start showing signs of brown. This practically means that they are done. Next, add the spinach and stir it in, leaving it on the heat for another minute or two.
