Balsamic Chicken over Spinach

A simple marinade of balsamic vinegar and garlic take your average chicken and elevates it to a brand new level of flavor. To round out the meal, add your favorite fruit to the spinach and serve with whole-grain bread.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 8 cups spinach
