Recipe Ingredients for CHICKEN WITH PINEAPPLE SAUCE & SPINACH

3 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 lb. chicken breasts
1 1/2 cup fresh pineapple, diced
1 teaspoon jalapeno pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 lb. spinach, fresh
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon unsalted butter

Recipe Directions for CHICKEN WITH PINEAPPLE SAUCE & SPINACH

  1. Preheat broiler to high. Line a broiler pan or rimmed sheet pan with tinfoil and set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, combine 1-tablespoon honey, 1-teaspoon lime juice, 1-teaspoon soy sauce and olive oil together and mix well. Transfer chicken to prepared pan, season with salt and pepper and brush each breast with honey mixture. Broil chicken until cooked through and golden brown on top, about 10 to 12 minutes

  3. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine pineapple, 2-tablespoons honey, 1-tablespoon lime juice, 2-teaspoons soy sauce, jalapeno pepper and salt together. Puree until frothy and smooth. Pour pineapple mixture into a nonstick pan and set over medium-high heat. Cook pineapple mixture, stirring occasionally, until sauce caramelizes and thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. Meanwhile, set a steamer basket over a pot of boiling water. Add spinach, cover and cook until wilted and tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from steamer basket; add lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Add butter, if desired. Serve chicken with steamed spinach and warm pineapple sauce as a garnish.
