    Chef #1217584's Note:

    This recipe is relatively easy and quick, and makes for easy clean-up--only uses 1 pan! It's pretty much a meal in itself, although it's good with a side of asparagus if you're in a veggie-intense mood.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash spinach leaves a few minutes ahead of time and allow to dry in a salad-spinner or colander.
    2. 2
      Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook about 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through and juices run clear. Remove the chicken and set aside. To the same pan, add the spinach and cook just until wilted, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside. Lower the heat to medium and add the balsamic vinegar and chicken broth to the pan and stir, scraping the bottom of the pan to remove any browned bits. Add the tomatoes, bring to a simmer and cook 3 to 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Place the couscous in a serving bowl. Top with the spinach, chicken and balsamic-tomato sauce.

      *A few pointers:.
    5. 5
      I use either thin-sliced chicken or pound the chicken so it's about a 1/2 inch thick. It cooks much more evenly that way. This recipe is also tasty with a dash or two of dried basil and rosemary and a few turns of fresh ground black pepper added to the vinegar/tomato mixture. The prep time of this recipe includes washing the spinach, cooking the couscous and pounding the chicken.
