Balsamic vinegar makes a flavorful pan sauce for a surprisingly delicious but easy low-fat chicken with ham and mozzarella cheese.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 teaspoon margarine OR butter
    4 small skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 pound)
    1/2 cup fat-free chicken broth
    2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
    4 thin slices cooked ham (2 ounces)
    4 thin slices part-skim mozzarella cheese (2 ounces)
    1 (5- to 6-ounce) bag prewashed baby spinach

Directions

In nonstick 12-inch skillet, melt margarine over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken and cook 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and turn chicken over; cover and cook until chicken is golden brown and just loses its pink color throughout, about 5 minutes longer.

Increase heat to medium-high. Stir in broth, balsamic vinegar, and pepper; cook, uncovered, 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat; top each chicken breast with a slice of ham, then a slice of mozzarella cheese. Cover skillet until cheese melts, about 3 minutes.

Arrange spinach on large platter; top with chicken breasts and drizzle with pan sauce.

Yield: 4 main-dish servings
