What To Eat With Palak Chicken
When it comes to Indian cuisine, there are endless possibilities when it comes to pairing food with chicken. However, one of our personal favorites has to be chicken with palak (spinach). The spinach provides a much-needed nutrient boost, while the chicken itself is a fantastic source of protein. Plus, the two flavors compliment each other perfectly! Not to mention, this meal is incredibly easy to make. Simply cook up some chicken breasts (seasoned with salt, pepper, and turmeric), and then stir in some spinach leaves until they’re wilted. Serve with rice or naan bread, and you’re good to go
