Barbecue Mushroom Spinach Chicken

This Barbecue Mushroom Spinach Chicken is full of amazing flavor. It is easy, healthy, and kid friendly. You can't even taste the spinach, because it has so much delicious flavor to it. This is a recipe you really need to try. You will absolutely love it.

This recipe is definitely one to use if you are trying to impress guests. It tastes amazing and it’s definitely easy to make. And you probably already have most the ingredients. The best part is, it is healthy.

This is a great recipe to sneak vegetables in, to your kids diets. They will never see the hint of spinach coming, because they won’t be able to taste it.

I love this cheese smothered chicken, and the amazing barbecue flavor it has. It is such a light dish, that is surprisingly very filling. My husband usually reaches for seconds at dinner, but he was too full with this one.

If you are looking for a simple, healthy, and delicious meal, this is definitely one you need to make. You are not going to regret it.

could I grill this recipe?

This is a recipe you could easily throw on the grill.

We do however, recommend sautéing the mushrooms, green onions, and spinach over the stove, then bringing them out, and placing them on the chicken, when the chicken is almost completely cooked through.

Once the chicken is on it’s last flip, add the ingredients, as described in the instructions, place the provolone cheese on it, to see them all in, and let it grill on low for about 3 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted.

Be sure that your chicken isn’t going to be overcooked. Be sure you have about 5 minutes left, of the grilling process, when adding your mushrooms, green onions, spinach and provolone cheese.

what could i use instead of barbecue sauce?

Barbecue sauce does have quite a bit of sugar in it, depending on what barbecue sauce you go for.

If you are looking for an alternative sauce, we recommend teriyaki sauce or honey mustard. They both go perfectly with this recipe, and all the flavor is still there, and delicious.

To make my honey mustard, I like to use organic pure honey, and mustard. I usually do equal parts, stir in a bowl, and rub over my chicken breasts.

One Response to “Barbecue Mushroom Spinach Chicken”

  1. LOVED this! Holy cow I couldn't believe how easy it was. The chicken was so moist that everyone kept commenting on it. My husband usually will only eat meat with a side of BBQ sauce (at home and at restaurants) and I kept asking if he wanted me to get it and he kept saying no that it had so much flavor that it didn't need it. Nice inexpensive meal that had pretty much no prep other than cutting up the onion and the clean up was simple. I didn't have anything planned for dinner, saw this and grabbed the few ingredients at the store and threw it all together. Very light but filling as well. Delicious and so simple!
