Tender Chicken with Apple and Spinach

Tender Chicken with Apple and Spinach ~ This Low-Fat Chicken and Apple combination is delicious and the Chicken is so juicy ! #Chicken #LowFat #Healthy

Looking for a Chicken recipe ? Well, everyone has hundreds of recipes for chicken {well, I do!}, but it seems the search for more/different recipes are always plenty.

This tender Chicken with Apple and Spinach is juicy, slightly sweet-sour and delicious served with just about anything on the side - mashed potatoes, baby potatoes, rice, salads, steamed/grilled vegetables ... you name them and this chicken is perfect to serve.

The Chicken Fillets can be cut into strips as I did, cubed or left whole, but if you do leave the Chicken Fillets whole, the cooking time will be longer, not much, but some.

I prefer the strips as the ingredients have more room to give the Chicken the best and most flavor available, which is what we want, right ?

Serve the Apple pieces together with the Spinach grouped together with the Chicken. It is most delicious when you take a bite of Chicken followed by a piece of Apple - trust me ! Oh yes, and it is low in fat, so tuck away and enjoy ;-)

TENDER CHICKEN WITH APPLE AND SPINACH

Serves : 4 - 6

INGREDIENTS:

2 TB Light Olive Oil
4 Large Chicken Fillets, each cut into 3 - 4 thick strips
Salt and Black Pepper, to taste

1 t Garlic, crushed
1 t Dijon Mustard
1/2 cup Apple Cider
1 Granny Smith Apple, cored and sliced thickly

6 cups Baby Spinach, chopped

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Heat the Oil over medium heat - season the Chicken to taste with Salt and Pepper - cook until done - remove from pan and keep warm.
2.) Using the same pan with the juices left behind - add the Garlic, Mustard, Apple Cider and the Apple pieces - bring to the boil - lower heat and simmer 5 minutes, stirring regularly.
3.) Return the Chicken to the pan with the Apple - cook another 3 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly - add the Spinach and stir until wilted {about 1 minute}.

Serve with mashed potatoes, salads or vegetable sides.
