Balsamic Chicken with Spinach (Gluten-Free)

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.

You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)

Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.

Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab. Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.

Thanks for that. Will get her tested for deficiencies. I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks

Hi Could a mod please move this post: and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
