Easiest Indian Food You'll Ever Make

Since Mondays are usually my busiest and most exhausting day at work, I love little help in the kitchen. Today, my cooking parter was Joe. Trader Joe that is. If you don't have a Trader Joe's Grocery Store near you, then my only suggestion for you would be moving near one. I love shopping there, and especially love the great sauces and frozen items they carry to make dinner a breeze!

Chicken Tikka Masala

8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into 1 in. pieces
1 jar of Trader Joe's Masala Simmer Sauce
Basmati rice (prepared as directed on package)

Simmer uncooked chicken in sauce over medium heat for 15-20 min. (as directed on sauce jar)

Serve over cooked Basmati rice.

I recommend serving with Tandori Naan (like a flat bread) found in the Trader Joe's frozen foods section.

Sauteed Spinach

1 6 oz. bag of fresh baby spinach
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste

Sauté the minced garlic in oil over medium heat for 2 min. in a saucepan or skillet. Add spinach and allow to wilt. Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice and add salt and pepper to taste.
