As many of the entries for the Delicious Diet Fare contest showed, light on calories does not have to mean light on flavor. The winning recipe is simple to make with a short list of fairly inexpensive ingredients. And it’s delicious to boot.

Olive oil cooking spray
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bag (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
Balsamic vinegar to taste

  • Prepare a sauté pan with cooking spray and cook chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper, over medium heat.
  • As chicken is cooking, lightly steam spinach for 1 to 2 minutes in the microwave so it is cooked but not soggy.
  • When chicken is cooked through, place it on a plate, top each with 1/4 of cooked spinach, sprinkle with 1 ounce feta and drizzle with balsamic to taste.
