Recipe Ingredients for Balsamic chicken with baby spinach

3 cloves garlic, chopped
16 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved
8 ounces baby spinach
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup canned chopped tomatoes with juice
1 cup dry whole wheat couscous

Recipe Directions for Balsamic chicken with baby spinach

  1. 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.

  2. Cook the cous cous as directed, place in a serving bowl. Top with the spinach, chicken and balsamic-tomato sauce.
