Here is the recipe for the meal that I made yesterday…
Southwestern Chicken with Spinach and Mashed Potatoes
- 2 tablespoon Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 1/2 teaspoon Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup grape tomatoes
- 8 cup spinach leaves
- 1 pounds potatoes pealed, quartered
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespoon scallions thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
(I included the recipe and instructions here as given, but I did not use any salt when cooking it.)
Combine brown sugar, salt, and spices for chicken. Coat on both sides with rub. (I pounded the chicken first to flatten it out a bit.)
Boil potatoes in salted water until tender, about 15 min. Drain and return pan to dry over medium heat.
Off heat, mash to desired consistency, then add the buttermilk, scallions, butter, and salt. Keep warm over very low heat.
Heat 1 T. oil in a skillet, add chicken and cook until done, about 5 min per side. Remove and keep warm.
Heat 1 T. oil in a skillet, add tomatoes and saute 1 min. Add spinach and cook until wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
Combine sour cream, lime juice and salt. (I used just plain sour cream.)
To assemble, place potatoes on plate, top with sour cream, put spinach and tomatoes on potatoes and top with chicken.
This recipe was really good, and we will definitely be having it again.
Now, for the modification. We have been pretty unhappy with the faucet in our bathroom. A few weeks ago, one of the handles even broke off. So today was faucet replacement day.

The old piece of #$@% faucet…
So Harry had to pull out his trusty box of plumbing supplies…
Took a little extra doing, but finally it was all put together!
The finished product looks awesome!
