Balsamic Chicken With Baby Spinach

Recipe by HeatherFeather
READY IN: 25mins




  • Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the olive oil and garlic and cook about 1 minute.
  • Very lightly season chicken with a bit of salt and a hearty grinding of pepper.
  • Add the chicken to the pan and cook about 4-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through and juices run clear (time will vary based on thickness of your chicken pieces).
  • Remove the chicken, jkeep warm, and set aside.
  • To the same pan, add the spinach and cook just until barely 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, raise heat and cook until reduced to your liking, about 3 to 5 minutes, seasoning to taste with pepper and salt if desired.
  • To serve, set out your seasoned couscous, orzo or rice on a platter, then sprinkle the spinach over the top, then place chicken on top of the spinach and drizzle with the balsamic tomatoes.
  • There isn't a ton of sauce, so if you like things very saucy, you may wish to make extra sauce (I was happy with the amount as listed though).
