nearly paleo creamy chicken and spinach


Here’s something that’s not quite paleo….I had some sour cream in the fridge that needed to be used and some leftover baby spinach and cauliflower.  A quick flick through some recipe books to get some ideas and “nearly paleo creamy chicken spinach” was born!

It’s Winter here in Adelaide which is why I am loading up on the garlic in this recipe (and because I love it!).  For those of you on strict paleo, you could replace the sour cream with a little coconut cream.

What you need (serves 2): 

  • 400g chicken mince
  • 300g baby spinach
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 540g cauliflower
  • 1 tbs poppy seeds
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup roughy chopped parsley

How to make it:

  1. In a heavy based casserole dish or saucepan heat the olive oil and add the onion and garlic over a medium heat.  Gently cook the onion and garlic for 3-5 minutes until has softened.
  2. Add the chicken mince to the pan and cook through, this should take about 10 minutes.
  3. Blitz the cauliflower in the food processor until it looks like rice.
  4. Put the cauliflower in a saucepan and cover with water.  Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes until the cauliflower has cooked.
  5. Add the baby spinach to the chicken and stir through until it wilts, then add the sour cream and stir through on a gentle heat.
  6. Drain the cauliflower rice and squeeze out all the water out of it.  To the cauliflower add the lemon juice, poppy seeds and parsley and stir through.
  7. Serve the creamy chicken and spinach on the cauliflower rice and enjoy!
