Chicken Or Fish Spanish Rice

Chicken is high in protein, low in sodium, and is a good source of blood-building vitamin B6, bone-strengthening phosphorus, and cell-protecting selenium. Spinach is an amazing source of potassium. Potassium helps our muscles to function more efficiently [even heart muscles], improves our nerve function, and helps kidneys to filter blood.
