Indian Saag Curry Chicken *Revisited*

I first created this recipe and while it was very good, I wanted to change the cheese to Laughing Cow Lite so it is even creamier because you can use 2 wedges as a Healthy Fat.  I also brought the condiments be within plan.  I really didn't miss the extra spices.  Here is the original recipe, but I will be making this version from now on:

6 oz Chicken Breast Tenders
1.5 cups Spinach, fresh
2 wedges Laughing Cow Lite Swiss Cheese
*Note - Laughing Cow cheese is not recommended by Medifast Nutrition Support, however they do give guidelines for how to incorporate it here.
1 tsp curry powder

Cut up raw chicken and cook in pan with a bit of water, until no longer pink in the middle. Set aside. In a bit of water, saute the spinach until cooked. Add chicken and curry powder and mix together. Add 2 wedges of Laughing Cow lite cheese and mix until creamy.

This counts as 1 lean, 3 green, 1 healthy fat and 2 condiments.

I am not sure what snack thing you are referring to, but we do get some allowed snacks on Medifast. This recipe doesn't use any however.

This recipe sounded and looked so tempting that I made it for dinner tonight, even though I had to substitute leftover ground turkey for the chicken. Ground turkey might veer pretty far away from authentic Indian food, but it tasted fantastic! Can't wait to try it with chicken. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Is it 1 cup cooked or raw? It shinks so much, I wasn't sure..
This is so good by the way!

Cooked. It does shrink up a ton!

This recipe looks awesome and I'm planning to try it this week. So I should start out with 3 cups of fresh spinach and they cook down to 1.5 cups?

I have had spinach vary so much on raw to cooked serving sizes. I started cooking the spinach and weighing it, then adding more if I need to to meet my serving requirement.

Cody Jo, I made this tonight and it was delicious!!! I only had canned spinach and LC Lite Garlic and Herb wedges, but it was amazing. I can't thank you enough because I was dying for Indian food. :)

I have had this for dinner two nights in a row. Great Recipe. Thank you for sharing. I added some diced zucchini and used only one cheese. And it was super good! Thanks!
