Steamed Chicken with tangy Spinach and Mushroom sauce

I feel like ranting and raving to everybody I meet that I have started blogging AGAIN finally!I feel elated, on top of the world today while I am typing my post.Taking care of 3 kids(hubby taken into consideration) is not an easy task but then taking some time out for yourself is everybody's birthright.Though I am not able to read or watch my favourite programs but then I am sure blogging is surely going to give me immense satisfaction at the end of the day.
Today's recipe is steamed chicken with a thick tangy spinach and mushroom sauce.A very healthy dish.Those who cannot have steamed chicken can shallow fry the marinated chicken breast with a little olive oil.The tomatoes impart a tangy flavour and a rich red colour to the sauce.The recipe provided here serves 2 persons.

You will Need:
For the Sauce:
Chicken Breast- 2 Pcs
Onion - 1 medium, finely chopped
Spinach - 1 and 1/2 cup, finely chopped
Mushrooms(button)-6-7 medium sized,sliced
Tomatoes -2 medium sized
Garlic - 5-6 flakes
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Salt and pepper to taste

Salt and pepper to taste
lemon juice -1 tbsp
Oregano - 1/2 tsp

  1. Marinate the chicken breasts with salt ,pepper,oregano and lemon juice for an hour .
  2. Steam the pieces in a steamer for 25- 30 minutes.
  3. For the sauce heat some olive oil in a pan, saute the sliced mushrooms .Stir fry till golden.Transfer to a plate.
  4. Heat the rest of the oil in the pan,add garlic,fry till light brown.
  5. Add the chopped onion,fry till they turn translucent.
  6. Add the tomatoes and cook till the oil separates.
  7. Now its the turn of chopped green spinach,cook the spinach till a little dry,the water from the spinach imparts a saucy texture.
  8. Finally add the sauteed mushrooms with the seasonings.
Check the seasonings and serve the sauce with the steamed chicken or pour generously over it.The recipe is a hit in my household .I normally serve it with garlic bread and some steamed veggies.

A Comeback!!

Wow!!I still can't believe I have finally found some time for blogging.The last few months have been incredibly hectic with my pregnancy,with my little one being born and of course our posting back to India in Goa.During all this time though I missed blogging I had my priorities lined up.A big Hug and a Hello to all my blogger friends..hey hope you guys haven't forgotten me!!I missed you all.
I am back in Goa now,the land of sun ,sand and sea...all settled with my hubby and daughters.Yes, the new addition to our family is a little brat who controls our lives.We have named her Wamika and fondly call her Tweety.Mishti is a proud and doting sister now,strangely I don't have to worry about sibling rivalry or deal with temper tantrums from Mishti's side.Thanks to my stars.But still I feel these months were a roller coaster ride for me with my hormones surging up and dipping down.But then now aaalll eeeezzzz well!!:)
Will post a recipe very soon.Cooking has always been an integral part of me except during the initial months of my pregnancy when my hormones played havoc and I lost interest in the blog and food.I could not stand the sight of my blog as they had food pics...strange ....I am glad that period is over.Back in Goa I am on a socialising spree .We have already done the house warming and celebrated our 12 th marriage anniversary too .In short I have been cooking and cooking and cooking.Will bounce back with a recipe soon.The pic is of my little one...tweety:)
