Chicken Saag

If you are looking to eat something healthy without getting bored, then this dish is for you. Chicken Saag is super healthy, tasty, and satisfying dish that can be served in either lunch or dinner. This dish requires minimal ingredients and less effort. The main ingredients of this dish are saag, chicken, and garlic. Personally, I love the flavor of garlic, it gives aromatic flavor in any dish, if you follow my blog you will notice almost in every recipe I have either used garlic powder or fresh garlic. Saag is any kind of cooked greens. In this dish, I have used Chinese spinach (Poro leaves) but you can choose your favorite greens for this recipe.

After making this chicken saag I have tried to find chicken saag recipe on the Internet to see, is this recipe exist or not? I did find lots of chicken saag recipe, which is used spinach, heavy cream, and butter. However, here I have tried to make it super healthy by adding only a few ingredients and it still tastes is so delicious.

Making this dish is so easy, first, I have cooked chicken breast with onion, garlic, and some spices. Then add the chopped green leaves and cook it with the chicken and it’s done. This dish can be served with rice/quinoa or any flatbread.
