Chicken and Spinach with Balsamic-Citrus Sauce One Star

Get Ready

Servings: Serves 4

Cook Time: 11 minutes

Prep Time: 0 minutes


3 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
2 teaspoon Fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup Imagine low-sodium vegetable broth (found in the Organic & Natural aisle)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb boneless Chicken breast, thin sliced
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
4 teaspoons water, divided
2 (7 oz.) pkg Taste of Inspirations Baby spinach


Heat the skillet before adding oil to prevent chicken from sticking. Serve with brown rice or quinoa. Recipe may be halved.
Nutrition-boosting techniques: Quickly cooking the spinach helps retain its nutrients.
1. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice concentrate, lemon juice, vinegar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and broth. Set aside.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once it's hot, pour in oil and swirl pan to coat. If the oil smokes, throw it out and start over at a lower temperature. Sear chicken on both sides until nearly cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate.
3. Pour orange-balsamic mixture into the skillet. Increase heat to medium-high.Cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Mix cornstarch with 1 tsp. of the water until blended, then add to sauce and stir well.
4. Return chicken to skillet. Cook on both sides until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes, occasionally spooning sauce over the chicken as it cooks. Transfer chicken to a serving platter and tent with foil; pour any remaining sauce into a small bowl.
5. Rinse out skillet. Add spinach and remaining 1 Tbsp. water and cook over medium heat just until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Mound spinach next to chicken and drizzle sauce over both. Serve immediately.
