    Balsamic Chicken with Spinach (Gluten-Free)

    Jefferson Adams


    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This dish came together one night at an impromptu dinner party. Limited to the contents of my friend’s kitchen, I was forced to rely on a just few simple flavors, which really let the chicken speak for itself. The rosemary and lemon were an afterthought that added some depth. The sweet balsamic sauce is infused with the pan drippings and creates an unexpected and very subtle sweetness.

    Ingredients:
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 pound fresh spinach
    2 shallots, finely diced
    2 gloves garlic, chopped
    4 sprigs fresh rosemary
    4 slices fresh lemon
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    Salt and pepper for seasoning

    Directions:
    Pierce each chicken breast several times with a fork and season with salt and pepper.

    In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook shallots and garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

    Add chicken and top with 1 sprig of rosemary and 1 lemon slice. Cover and cook 6-8 minutes per side, turning once. Remove cooked chicken to rest.

    Reduce heat to low and add 3 generous tablespoons balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan. Allow sauce to thicken for 1-2 minutes and add spinach. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until wilted. Spoon remaining sauce over chicken before serving.

    When I was growing up, pot roast was one of the most favorite things my mom made. I fondly remember many a Sunday when I came home to the smell of pot roast cooking in the oven, and counted the minutes until dinner hit the table.
    These days, with time being tight, I rarely get a chance to make pot roast. This recipe uses a slow cooker to make a delicious, moist and juicy pot...
