Orange Balsamic Chicken with Spinach

Here’s a way to spice up your traditional chicken dish! A tangy mix of balsamic and orange juice is guaranteed to do the trick.

Ingredients

  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp rosemary, dried
  • 1 ½ tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • About 12 cups (8 ounces) fresh spinach
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp salt, divided
  • 20 ounces chicken breast

Cooking Process

  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat.
  2. Add fresh spinach, red pepper flakes and ¼ tsp salt. Sauté until wilted. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the chicken in one layer. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ tsp salt.
  4. Cook for 5-8 minutes per side, depending on thickness until done. Set aside.
  5. Add minced garlic and stir. Add orange juice, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar and dried rosemary. Scrape off any bits of chicken that may have remained in skillet.
  6. Simmer until the sauce reduces by about half (5-10 minutes), stirring often. Remove from heat.
  7. Add the chicken back to the skillet (to reheat a little and soak up some sauce).
  8. Plate the spinach. Top with chicken, and serve with extra sauce.
