Great dish. Leave out the tomatoes and use brown rice, and it works as a meal for the Clean toxic cleanse program as well.

I got this recipe from my Ellie Krieger cookbook and wanted to post because it is so awesome but you beat me to it! The flavors of the chicken/tomato combo and the garlicky spinach goes so well together, you would never know it is so low in fat and calories. Thanks for posting!

This is a good and simple recipe, I liked although I felt it needed more balsamic,salt, and garlic for more flavor. I will probably be trying this again with some tweaking. Thanks for posting a healthy recipe.
