Popeye the sailor man would definitely be proud of my Spinach and Cream Cheese Roasted Chicken dish I made this week. I kept it Gluten free and low in fat. That isn't always an easy task. I am going to apologize in advance for showing a picture of a raw chicken boob. I can't stand dealing with chicken. I love cooking it, but HATE cleaning it!
I sauteed whole spinach leaves in olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper. The chicken marinated in A LOT of minced garlic, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar (overnight). I stuffed the bird with the spinach mixture and roasted it in the oven for about 45 minutes, 375 degrees.
I served it with Sauteed Green Beans and Pecans and Baked Sweet Taters.
The Barnes (one of my weekly clients) raved about the meal. So, all in all it was a good day.
I always loved watching my mom cook when I was a little girl. It became clear by an early age that I had a love for being in the kitchen. Before my 18th Birthday I had more kitchen gadgets than anyone else I knew. Now I cook in my own kitchen for my husband and for my friends and family. Joey, my husband, jokes about how we need to rent a storage room for all of my kitchen toys. In 2008 I started cooking for others. Now, I have made a small business out of what I love doing most, preparing healthy, homemade meals for other busy locals in Birmingham and the surrounding areas. My motto is simple..."Stick that in your oven!!" Now that I'm a mom to an amazingly precious boy, I don't cook as many gourmet meals as I once did, nor do I offer my catering as often as I'd like. I'm slowly beginning to cook for the public again and couldn't be more excited!
