Palak Methi Chicken

My daughter and hubby does not eat leafy vegetables unless it is made into a paste and then added to any gravy.  To make them eat leafy vegetables I, usually adopt this method.  My hubby is a vegetarian, where as daughter and me eat non-veg. I try my best to incorporate leafy vegetables in our diet, so this one way I can make her eat this.  Whenever, I make this chicken dish she enjoys it.  In this methi gives an extraordinary flavor to the chicken.   Try this I assure you, all your family members will enjoy it too.

I am send this to BM#50 Week 3 day 1 under the theme Methi dishes, so let's go to the recipe. 

 1 Kg Chicken - 16 pieces
2 Cups Spinach  -  finely chopped
4 Cups Fenugreek leaves -  finely chopped
