Spinacine Homemade


Homemade spinach: everyone likes it and allows even less convinced children to eat vegetables.

With homemade baby spinach, you can create a dish at home that you have probably bought ready-made many times. Its preparation takes only a few minutes , and much of the work is done by the mixer and the cooker. I am a greedy second course which, we assure you, will conquer adults and children alike. You can cook them in three ways : in a pan with a drizzle of oil, fry them or even cook them in the oven for a lighter result.


Preparing homemade spinach

  1. Rinse the raw chicken breast under running water, dry it and cut it into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Place it in a mixer with the blade accessory and chop it until you have an easily workable mixture and pour it chopped into a bowl.
  3. Also chop the boiled and well squeezed spinach in the mixer or simply cooked in a pan for 3-4 minutes .
  4. Pour the spinach into the bowl along with the chicken. Season with salt and add a pinch of nutmeg and add the cheese .
  5. Mix for a few seconds to obtain a slightly homogeneous mixture , but if you want completely green spinach, mix everything until you obtain a single, well-defined colour.
  6. Separate the mix into 2-3 parts , wetting your hands to prevent the mixture from sticking to your fingers.
  7. Pour the flour into 3 containers or bowls, then the beaten egg and finally the breadcrumbs.
  8. Gently, take one portion of the mix at a time and dip it first in the flour, giving it the shape of a cutlet , then in the beaten egg, then in the breadcrumbs, on both sides.
  9. Place a non-stick pan on the heat, pour in the oil and bring it to temperature.
  10. Add the baby spinach and cook for 3-5 minutes per side over medium heat.
  11. Leave them to dry on absorbent kitchen paper and serve very hot.

Alternatively you can place them in a baking tray covered with baking paper greased with oil, pass a drizzle of oil over the cutlets and cook in the oven at 180°C for 20-25 minutes .

We recommend consuming the chicken and spinach cutlets at the moment, alternatively you can keep them in the fridge for a maximum of 2 days . Alternatively you can freeze them in the freezer.
