One-pot #Banting Chicken Dish that ticks all the boxes

Hello!

Here’s a fab Banting chicken dish that will tick all the boxes:
Super-Banting – tick
Super-tasty – tick
Heaps of greens – tick
Easy and quick to make – TICK

We often forget about the greens, or we tend to stack up on the meat and not get in enough veggies.
When you follow a Banting lifestyle, same with Paleo, it’s super-important to remember that it’s NOT a high protein diet, but rather low carb.

My husband’s been complaining that he’s not getting in enough veggies, especially the green varieties. You know how it goes during winter, no-ones in the mood for salads and we just kind of forget about all the other lovely greens…

So – here’s my recipe for an {almost} one-pot chicken dish with heaps of greens:

You will need:

8 pieces of chicken {I used thighs and drumsticks}
200g baby spinach
125g streaky bacon
1 small head of broccoli
A handful of Woolworths tenderstem broccoli tips
Olive oil
Butter for frying
3 sprigs of spring onion, sliced
125ml dry white wine
125ml cream
Peppadew spice

Heat a knob of butter in a large pot.
Season the chicken with Peppadew spice and fry on both sides in the butter until they’re golden.
Add the spring onion and bacon and let it cook.
Add the wine and cream, cover with the lid and let it cook for about 45 minutes.
Add the broccoli pieces and let it cook for another 10 minutes with the lid off.
Now add the tenderstem broccoli tips {these are awesome – a mix between broccoli and kale and packed with taste and nutrients!}.
Steam the baby spinach, drizzle with olive oil and place in a nice serving dish.
Top with the chicken-pot-goodies and serve!
