Glazed-Chicken Spinach Salad
Ingredients
  • 1  recipe  Ginger-Apple-Glaze
  • 4  skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 14 lb. total)
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2  medium  apples, cored and sliced
  • 1  medium  leek, sliced, or 1/3 cup chopped onion

Add 1/4 cup of the Apple Glaze and the apple juice; bring to boiling. Add spinach; toss just until wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
