Palak Chicken|Green Chicken Recipe

Palak/spinach Chicken is a healthy Indian chicken curry dish, which is so flavourful and loaded with lots of spinach that make this dish healthy and tasty.

The preparation of palak chicken curry is very simple and requires less time and very few ingredients. For making this dish, first, cook chicken with onion, ginger, garlic, and some Indian spices and then add the spinach puree. The cooking method adopted here is to prepare this dish without adding extra water so the outcome is semi-dry gravy. If you like more gravy/curry, you can add some water in it. I have served Palak chicken with white rice. This dish goes well with any type of flatbread, rice, or quinoa. Find full Palak Chicken recipe with step by step pictures below.
