  1. Using a large pot, sauté onion and garlic in 2 tbsp olive oil for 3–4 minutes until transparent. Add chicken and reduce heat and simmer with lid on for 10 minutes until chicken is tender, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

  3. Add spinach, tomatoes, PGX granules and salt to the chicken mixture for an additional 20 minutes on a low heat to blend flavors and ensure chicken is well cooked. Add the extra ginger at this time if you want extra heat and health benefits.
