Balsamic chicken with spinach

This meal can be put together really quickly if you chose to use couscous.  If you've got a bit more time, make quinoa or rice instead and let the chicken simmer in the sauce.

Balsamic Chicken with Spinach

Olive oil
1 lb chicken breast tenders
Salt and pepper
3 cloves of garlic, chopped

2 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 c chicken broth
1 can (15 oz) chopped tomatoes and juice
8 oz fresh baby spinach
Couscous, rice, or quinoa to serve over

In a heavy skillet, brown the chicken in olive oil, seasoning with salt and pepper.  When chicken is just cooked through, add the garlic and stir for a minute.  Add the vinegar and broth, scraping up the browned bits.  Add the tomatoes and their juice and bring to a simmer.  Cook for a few minutes until the sauce is thickened.  Remove the chicken and stir in the spinach, tossing it to wilt slightly.  Divide grain onto plates and top with the spinach mixture and the chicken.

Cyndi, this has several of my favorite foods and flavors. So I copied, pasted and printed it out.

Have you thought about adding a "Print this Page" widget to Real Foods Fast?

No I hadn't, but I'll look into it :-)
