The Hard Hearted Chef: Chickening Out!

So as you may recall, I'm back on a diet.
 I'd gained 15 pounds back, and the size 8 wardrobe was 
unattractively tight.
Like sausage-in-a-casing tight.
I needed to lose weight.
 Evidently, I need a dentist too.
But this is a cooking segment.
We'll talk about the smile at another time.

So how about something healthy and quick and delicious and one skillet?
I just happen to have a weeknight delicacy that fits the bill.

Sunny's Chicken Skillet

2 skinless boneless chicken breasts, about 2 pounds, pounded flat and cut into 6 pieces
1/2 pound of mushrooms, sliced
1 large onion, diced
1 bag of fresh spinach, washed
4 strips of turkey bacon, sliced into squares
1/4 cup of chardonnay
2 tablespoons Canola oil
1 tablespoon steak seasoning
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons fresh parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, saute the bacon until just crisp; transfer to a bowl.
Add the onions to the pan and a drizzle of oil if necessary. Sprinkle in the garlic. When they begin to brown, add the mushrooms and saute for 5 more minutes, then put that hot mess in a bowl.
Put the remaining oil in the pan and add the chicken, coating both sides of each piece with steak seasoning, and cook until golden brown and no longer pink in the center,
Add the mushrooms, onions, bacon and wine to the pan and stir.
Pile on the fresh spinach and cover the pan, lowering the heat to simmer.
Once the spinach is wilted, sprinkle with cheese.
I put the pan right on the table.
My two male dining companions ate double helpings.
It's definitely guy friendly, don't worry.
Add a side of stuffing if you have to have the carbs.
Other than that, welcome to MY kind of diet food!

My BFF, Michael, is also eating helthy, and tomorrow I'll
share one of his delicious dishes that's heart, waist, and diabetes friendly
AND company yummy!
See you then!

Sounds delish, Sunny! I thought I was the only one who used steak seasoning on chicken and pork. I think it adds a robust flavor. So pinning this!
