Recipe byHolly Clegg
Makes 6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes + marinade time  Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 6 (4-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 pint assorted cherry tomato halves
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. In plastic bag, combine lemon juice, oregano, and paprika. Add chicken.  Refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to cook.
  2. Preheat broiler. Line baking pan with foil. Place chicken breasts on pan, discard extra marinade. Broil chicken 7–9 minutes on each side or until chicken tender.
  3. Meanwhile, in nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté onion and garlic until tender, 5 minutes. Add tomatoes; sauté few minutes longer. Add spinach, cooking only until leaves are wilted. Season to taste.
  4. Divide mixture on top of each chicken breast, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese

Nutrition Nugget: In a serving of only 5 cherry tomatoes, they provide 15% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A and 10% of vitamin C.

Terrific Tip: Per 3.5 ounce portion of chicken breast, just by removing the skin saves you over 4 grams of fat and 1 gram of saturated fat.
