I’m in the middle of a very busy and sometimes stressful season. My slow cooker is doing overtime at the moment and all I can say is that my family would not have dinner on the table without it. And I must say, this clean eating slow cooker spinach and chicken recipe is smelling up my house pretty nicely. Yum!
Seriously, whoever invented the slow cooker (I really should research that) should have a monument raised in their honor. I could just kiss him or her.
I mean really. A slow cooker is SUCH a beautiful thing. It does all my hard work for me. It cooks my dinner all day long and when I get home from class, it has a warm and wonderfully aromatic meal awaiting my tired self. It’s a beautiful thing. Jussayin’.
If you like the flavor of spinach, you’ll love this dish. The flavor it imparts is strong and earthy. The tomatoes offer up a bit of lightness to the dish, but this is definitely a spinach lovers dinner!
