Rosemary Chicken with Spinach & Beans

With two young boys constantly on-the-go, I’m always looking for ways to simplify meals. This recipe uses just one skillet, making it a cinch to prepare dinner for a hungry family in half an hour. —Sara Richardson, Littleton, Colorado

    Excellent. I used siracha seasoning in lieu of pepper but everything else was pretty much the same, Delicious.

    Easy, nutritional, very tasty. Doesn't get any better than that. Will be. A "go to" recipe for sure.

    Really enjoyed the flavors in this. I used diced tomatoes to save a step. :) Quick, easy and healthy!

    This is an easy recipe that tastes great, and also looks really nice. My entire family (2 adults and 2 picky teens) liked it. I will definitely make this again!

    Loved this recipe. Although I made it with boneless pork chops because I didn’t have chicken at the time. Was still delicious. Will definitely make again. Maybe next time I will have chicken in the frig.

    One of our favorite dishes--delicious and healthy! I cook mine in a large cast-iron skillet and it comes out perfect every time. We like to serve it with a generous sprinkling of freshly grate parmesan.

    Pretty good! I liked the combination of the beans, spinach and stewed tomatoes. Surprisingly tasty. The time given to saut? the chicken is way too long. You only need 2-3 minutes per side if the cutlets are 1/4 inch thick. I will make this again but probably make some modifications. Great dish for summer - lo-cal, nutritious, and satisfying.

    This is just delicious. I used a lot more garlic, but that's the only change I made. Definitely a keeper. I have a question, though: Why is it, when I try to pin this recipe, does it only pin the photo? I always have to Google it because the pin won't work.

    Really liked this recipe. Since I have a family member that cannot have sodium, I did use canned tomatoes with no salt added and the same for white beans. I also substituted the half tsp of salt with a salt substitute. Good recipe and very versatile.
