Sauteed Apple, Asparagus, Sweet Potato, and Spinach Chicken Salad

If you are looking for a low carb, filling, and high in flavor kind of dinner. This is super easy and it was delish!  I had tons of spinach in my refrigerator and I hate when that stuff goes bad. I eat a serious amount of spinach weekly and I think I bought a little too much this time :)  But I certainly found something to do with it!  I had a bunch of stuff but no plan this week... here's what my randomness got me this time...
Sauteed Apple, Asparagus, Sweet Potato, and Spinach Chicken Salad
Ingredients: Serves 2

1 cup, fresh spinach
6-8 medium spear asparagus
Olive oil- EVOO
1 cup sweet potato cut into small cubes
salt and pepper to taste
1 small gala apple (cut into slices)
8 oz, boneless skinless chicken breast (cooked and cut into cubes)

1. In a large saute pan, heat 1 tablespoon EVOO, and toss in the cubed sweet potatoes. Lightly season with salt and pepper, or some cajun seasoning. After a couple of minutes, toss in the asparagus, and pour in about 1/3 cup water so the potatoes soften up. Continue to cook until water is gone, stirring every minute or so.

2. In a seperate pan, saute your apple slices until they are warm and softened.
3. When potatoes and asparagus are just about done, toss in your spinach and cook until fully sauteed. Should be about 1-2 minutes.  

4. Chop up your cooked chicken and toss all ingredients together.
Just to give you an idea of the serving size, my dinner was served on a small salad plate.  I hope you enjoy this simple dinner for two!
