Chicken Cordon Bleu

I made this recipe last night. It was so easy and good, I just wanted to share it with everybody. I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we did.

Chicken Cordon Bleu - Prep time 10 min; Cooking time 15 min; 4 servings

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

In a 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, vinegar and pepper; cook, uncovered, 1 minute. Remove skillet from heat; top each chicken breast with a slice of ham, then a slice of cheese. Cover skillet until cheese melts, about 3 minutes.

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