As some of the previous posts, this dish is inspired by Indian cuisine. I love to use these spices, especially since I want to use that expensive cardamom that I bought a while ago. Don't be afraid of cooking something as unique as this dish. I really do like unique dishes such as this one. Hope you enjoy and try cooking it for yourself!
1 tbsp olive oil
3 chicken breasts
2 cups Spinach
1 onion, minced
1 bell pepper, minced
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper
1 cup paneer or similar cheese
1/2 cup yogurt
Heat up a pan with the olive oil. Make sure you dice the veggies.
Dice the chicken. Add both the chicken and veggies to the heated pan. Add additional water or chicken stock to the mixture. For this example, I added water since I didn't have the stock. Personally, I prefer to use chicken stock.
Allow to mixture to cook. Add the garlic and spices to the mixture. Continue to stir and allow the spices to combine well with the chicken and veggies for about 5 minutes. Cover.
Add the spinach to the chicken. Allow the spinach to cook down.
Add the paneer to the mixture. Since I don't have a place close by that has paneer, you can get queso fresco, which I was able to purchase. Crumble the cheese and mix.
Finally, add the greek yogurt. I purchased greek yogurt as it makes this dish much more smooth. You might notice that you need to add more liquid. If you need to, add more chicken stock or some yogurt. This will make the dish rich. I had this with some pita bread and white rice.
