5 Ingredient Spinach Chicken (Chicken Saagwala)

Saag Chicken or Spinach Chicken

Saag refers to common leafy green vegetables. So it’s normally made from a variety of different greens but one of the most common ones is spinach. So this Chicken Saag is basically a Spinach Chicken. We have a rich and delicious gravy made by blending the spinach. Saag Chicken is a popular Indian dish though to be honest it’s vegetarian counterpart Palak Paneer is probably better known. Which is great because I have a recipe for that too! But for now try out this epic recipe.

It’s a great way to get your meat and vegetables in a one pot dish.

Just eat it!!

This dish goes great with some Keto naan or some cauliflower rice. I also do enjoy eating it with a spoon sometimes. Now you all know palak paneer but did you know this recipe goes absolutely amazing with some fish? Got some nice boneless filets of fish? Make the gravy and then drop those fish pieces in and let it poach in the spinach gravy for 4 minutes and it should be cooked.

You could also use this with eggs or maybe some lamb. It’s a great recipe! I hope you will enjoy it!
