Last year, I introduced dozens of Whole30 recipes on the blog and even dedicated the entire month of March to Whole30 recipes.

Of the 18 Most Popular New Recipes of 2018, 8 of them were part of Whole30 March. With the popularity of Whole30 recipes last year, I vowed to bring you more Whole30 recipes in 2019 and I’m here to deliver!

This Whole30 Spinach Mushroom Chicken is flavorful, easy to make and the perfect addition to your weekly healthy dinner menu! You could also prepare extra chicken to slice up and meal prep for lunches or dinners throughout the week.

How do you make mushroom chicken?

Start by marinating chicken breasts in a combination of olive oil, salt, black pepper and Italian seasoning. After the chicken has marinated, grill the chicken for 10-12 minutes per side.

To keep things easier (and indoors in the winter) I use this indoor grill. It’s perfect for cooking everything from chicken, to steak, to veggies.

While the chicken is grilling, prepare the spinach mushroom topping. Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium high heat, add the onions, mushrooms, garlic, spinach, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Saute on the stove, then spoon over the grilled chicken.

What to serve with mushroom chicken?

To keep it low carb, gluten free and healthy, serve this mushroom chicken with zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash or cauliflower rice. Instead of the cilantro and lime juice added to this cauliflower rice recipe, stir in a tablespoon of dairy free kale pistachio pesto.

If you’re not worried about adding some dairy or gluten to the recipe, serve the mushroom chicken over Creamy Cheesy Polenta or with fettuccine or pappardelle pasta.
