Chicken with Squash, Spinach, and Avocado

Chicken thighs with summer squash, red onion, sautéed spinach, and avocados slices. Sautéed the summer squash with red onion and spinach in oil and garlic, because I’m a firm believer that you can sautée almost any vegetable in garlic and oil and it’s awesome 💁‍♀️

Anyone else on this one? 😬

 

Ingredients:

2 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1 summer squash

1 zucchini

1/16 red onion

2 cloves of garlic

avocado oil

1/2 bag spinach

1/4 avocado

salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

1. Cut summer squash and zucchini into slices. Cut the slices into halves or fourths.  Place the zucchini in a baking dish (I use glass because it avoids the harmful interactions of nonstick baking sheets).

2. Cut red onion and place on baking dish. Mince 1 clone of garlic and mix with vegetables.

3. Place 2 chicken thighs in the baking dish on top of the vegetables. This will allow the veggies to cook in the natural oils from the chicken- no need for added oils. Season chicken and veggies with salt and pepper.

4. Bake on 400 degs for 35-45mins, depending on the size of the chicken thighs. Check the chicken periodically to avoid over cooking.

5. While this is baking, sautéed spinach with avocado oil and 1 clove of garlic in a frying pan.

6. Cut 1/4 avocado into slices.

7. Plate the chicken, vegetables, spinach, and avocado.
