This chicken, spinach, and sundried tomato panini is one of the tastiest spinach recipes out there. Using fresh baby spinach, this low calorie recipe works great as a lunch of dinner option. If you have leftover spinach, you can wilt spinach in olive oil on the stove. Also, you can make a sauteed spinach dish with spinach and garlic. You can either freeze or save for the next day. Plenty if garlic and oil is the secret to making that delicious.

 

While here I recommended goat cheese, the truth is you can use any kind of cheese, from those that melt into stringy and gooey messes like muenster and swiss and cheddar to the creamy and smokey like gouda or parmesan. If you’re on a gluten or carb free diet, then omit the bread and deconstruct thus into a wilted spinach salad. A crack of freshly ground black pepper will make it zesty and give it just a little bit of a kick. This also makes a great holiday sandwich platter spread, as well as a great mother’s day brunch.

Chicken is great for protein, spinach is an excellent source of roughage, and while bread may not be the healthiest of choices, for some it can provide an extra boost of calories especially if you’re trying to bulk up. Sometimes sundried tomatoes can be expensive to buy at the store, so if you have a food dehydrator, you can make your own in a short amount of time.
