Maple Chicken and Spinach

This is a simple recipe for chicken and spinach that is full of flavor. After sauteing the chicken in the maple syrup and mustard, saute the spinach in the remaining sauce. The spinach will soak up the flavors in the saute pan. The result is a decadent meal that is healthy!


If you don’t like spinach, just omit that last few steps to this recipe! The spinach is just sauteed in the sauce that the chicken cooks in. The maple glaze would also be good on pork chops!
