High Protein, low carb recipes/GARLIC PARMESAN CHICKEN/

One of my all time favorite aromas in a kitchen is the smell of sauteing garlic.

Pure.bliss. (Note if you do not love garlic, this recipe is not for you)

Seriously, if I run out of garlic, my kitchen closes down. I don’t know how to cook with out. (Okay, I’m a tad bit exaggerating but this Italian girl loves her garlic!)

This recipe is quick and simple….but it feels like you are eating out. It doesn’t take fancy skills or lots of expensive ingredients to make a great dish.

Garlic Parmesan Chicken is good enough to stand alone but is wonderful over pasta. Or, if you are gluten-free, like me, try it over zucchini noodles. This (Amazon link) tool to make ‘zoodles’ has been worth the investment. I use it several times a week.

3 tbsp. butter
6 cloves minced garlic
2 chicken breasts-chopped into bite size pieces
sea salt
¼-1/2 cups parm cheese
2 cups spinach

Saute garlic in butter for a minute or two
Add chicken pieces, salt, and cook until no longer pink in the middle.
Make sure to stir chicken to coat with butter and garlic
Add parm cheese and stir until the chicken is coated.
Add spinach and cook until wilted
Serve by itself or over pasta or zoodles


  1. This is my recipe and blog post, since you have not asked for permission, I'd ask that you please take it down before I file a formal complaint. Thank you.

    1. No one else in the world could figure out how to put chicken, garlic and spinach together?

  2. Get over yourself Jessica Young. She didn't say it was her recipe! Why not just ask her politely to add a link to your page?

  3. True you never patterned it and its god to share. Don't be selfish Jessica

  4. Haha.. some people are selfish .. I made this today..and I have to say it was bloody lovely so thanks for sharing

  5. Jessica, it sounds delicious and I want to try it. I am sorry if they did not ask your permission but I hope you take pleasure knowing so many of us like it. Ignore the negative remarks, people are crazy sometimes.

  6. Jessica, Jessica--

    Look at all the negative responses your threatening letter got. You would have gotten credit and probably visits if you's said something like, "Thank you for publicizing my personal recipe from {site name}. It is normally polite [legal?] to cite sources. I'll be happy to share more good things at {site name}, but please give credit where credit is due." That states your case, provides your location, and invites more traffic without sounding childishly selfish.

    I love you.

  7. Your recipe Jessica? it's chicken, spinach, and cheese, whoa! like no one could come up with that brilliant concoction.

  8. For the record... She DOES give the source of the recipe...
