Chicken Saag-9032

Chicken Saag! Tender boneless chicken simmered in a creamy spinach sauce laced with Eastern spice! Healthy and easy , chicken saag is a family favorite for a quick weekday supper! I love this dish because It’s veggies and meat rolled into one!! You can eat it plain like a stew, spoon it over some rice or mop it up with some bread or naan. However you choose to eat it, it makes a yummy nutritious addition to any meal. I am participating in weekday supper this week and the theme is “Green Dishes”! I make a lot of green dishes and this is one of my favorite and I so pleased to share it with you! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does! If you’re a vegetarian for the season or otherwise you can swap the chicken for tofu chunks or panner! It tastes great with tofu too.
