Palak Chicken

On Saturday I cooked up some Palak Chicken-- spinach chicken curry-- and it was so yummy I wanted to share the recipe with you all.
First you saute onions and garlic in oil until they are translucent.
Next you some chopped chicken, salt, chili pepper, cloves and cinnamon and turmeric. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink.
Add 1 cup water and simmer until chicken is finished cooking.
After the chicken is thoroughly cooked add the peppers, frozen spinach, and fenugreek.
Once the spinach and peppers are cooked add the butter, stir and then you are done.
Serve with rice.

Ohh, yummy. I will definitely be trying this as soon as chicken goes on sale again. Indian food with spinach is my favorite.

Blogger isn't working with me to let me sign in as HuckleberryStew... oh well.
