Recipe Ingredients for Broiled Chicken Breast with Spinach and Honey-Mustard Apricot Sauce

16 oz chicken breast, (4 halves)
3 tbs lemon juice
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 1/2 tbs honey
2 tbs Dijon mustard
1/4 cup sliced dried apricots
2 tbs walnuts or pecans, coarsely chopped
1 tbs chopped parsley
4 bunches fresh spinach, stems removed and rinsed thoroughly
1 salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Broiled Chicken Breast with Spinach and Honey-Mustard Apricot Sauce

  1. Preheat the broiler on high and place stainless steel skillet or cast iron pan about 6 inches from the heat for about 10 minutes to get it very hot.

  2. While the pan is heating, rinse and pat the chicken dry and season with 2 tablespoons lemon juice, salt and pepper.

  3. Leaving the skin on, place the breast (skin side up) on the hot pan (depending on size, it should be cooked in about 7 minutes). Remove the skin before serving; it is left on to keep it moist while broiling.

  4. For honey-mustard sauce, combine broth, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, honey, and mustard in a small saucepan. Whisk together and bring to a boil on high heat. Once it comes to a boil, simmer for about 20 minutes.

  5. Add apricots and cook on high for another 5 minutes. When sauce is done add chopped walnuts, parsley, salt and pepper.

  6. Cook spinach in large pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and press dry. Season with a little salt and pepper.

  7. Divide spinach onto 4 plates. Slice chicken breast and place over beds of spinach. Spoon sauce over chicken and spinach.
