Indoor Grilling

Prep Time

5-10 Mins

Prep Notes

Aim for organic ingredients when possible.

Cooking Time

<15 Minutes


1 Serving


  • 4 oz chicken breast (pre-cooked)
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • Black peppercorns
  • 1/2 fresh lime or lemon
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil (I recommend olive, coconut, or avocado oil)
  • Cast iron skillet


  1. Cut your (pre-baked) chicken into small 1/2 inch x 1-inch strips.
  2. Wash, peel, and chop your onion into rings.
  3. Heat cast iron skillet on the stove for 30 seconds (medium temperature). Note: if you heat it up any longer than this before adding the oil, you put yourself at danger for the oil splashing on you.
  4. Add 1 teaspoon cooking oil and use a paper towel to spread a very thin layer of oil evenly across the skillet.
  5. Allow the skillet to continue to heat for an additional minute
  6. Evenly distribute chicken and onions on the skillet, allowing them to sizzle for 5 minutes or until grill marks are achieved.
  7. Sprinkle some ground peppercorns on the chicken/onions.
  8. Squeeze your 1/2 lime/lemon on the chicken/onions.
  9. Flip chicken/onions to other side and let sizzle for 5 minutes.
  10. Once you are satisfied with the grill level of the chicken/onions, turn off the stove and fold baby spinach into the chicken/onions.
  11. Once spinach is softened/cooked by the steam, plate and enjoy, inshaAllah (Godwilling)
