Number of Servings: 1


    6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    (1 3/4 pounds)
    1 cup fat-free (skim) milk
    1/2 cup Progresso® chicken broth
    (from 32-ounce carton)
    1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
    1 bag (10 ounces) washed fresh spinach, chopped
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1. Remove fat from chicken. Spray 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Cook chicken in skillet 2 minutes on each side; reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in milk, broth and onion. Cook about 5 minutes, turning chicken occasionally, until onion is tender.
2. Stir in spinach. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spinach is completely wilted and juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.
3. Increase heat to medium. Cook spinach mixture about 3 minutes or until liquid has almost evaporated. Stir in salt, pepper and nutmeg. Serve chicken on spinach.
