Ingredients

CHICKEN SPINACH

5
chicken thighs, if possible skinless and boneless
water to cover
2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 Tbsp
chopped garlic
1
red onion, sliced
1 pkg
frozen spinach
1/2 c
red wine

HOLLANDAISE OREGANO

5
egg yolks
1 stick
butter
2 Tbsp
dijon
1/4 c
white wine
1 tsp
ground oregano
1/2 c
heavy cream
1/2 c
cheddar cheese (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To start the chicken, just cover with water and boil until cooked through. Remove chicken. Let cool and shred with knife and fork. I like to keep the water from the chicken in a mason jar with a lemon wedge, salt, and pepper.
2
Then in the same pan after the water has been removed, put the olive oil, garlic, and onions. Cook for a minute, then add chicken, wine, and spinach.
3
Cook until the spinach is heated thoroughly. Then lower heat to low and cover. Stirring occasionally.
4
To start sauce, on a lower heat whisk egg yolks. Then add butter. Whisk until totally incorporated.
5
Raise heat to medium while still whisking. Add wine and mustard. Whisk, whisk, whisk.
6
If you would like to add cheese, now would be the time to do it. Whisk until melt. It should be kind of thick now.
7
Add cream and beat until a thinned, even sauce. Now add your oregano. Optionally you may want to add a little cayenne for heat, but I usually do not.
8
I like to serve this with vegetable pasta tossed in olive oil and fresh herbs. Just one scoop of spinach mix and a spoonful of hollandaise. Enjoy and have seconds!
