Chicken with creamy spinach and shallots

It is really interesting to live with someone and to try to make sure that our habits, taste buds and what not mesh.  It doesn’t always work, he’s a morning person and I’m a night owl.  He hates sweet and savory combo, especially Asian.  Asian is one of my favorite types of food.

Dan loves onions on everything, I’m realizing that I can take them on certain dishes but on others it doesn’t mesh.  This creamed spinach is one of those dishes.  Dan finished the spinach, all of it, in one sitting.  I finished my portion, but had to pick out all the shallots.  The chicken thigh was as delicious as usual.
