Servings: Serves 4

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Prep Time: 35 minutes


2 cups diced cantaloupe
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1 jalapeno chili pepper, seeded and minced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp. minced red onion
4 cloves garlic, minced, divided
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1/8 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt, or to taste, divided
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, divided
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 (6 to 8 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breasts
2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
6 cups shredded spinach
cilantro leaves for garnish (optional)


1. Prepare cantaloupe salsa. In a medium bowl, combine cantaloupe, bell pepper, jalape?o, cilantro, onion, 1 clove of the garlic, lime juice, sugar, 1/8 tsp. of the salt, and 1/8 tsp. of the pepper. Mix well and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Sprinkle chicken with remaining 1/8 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper; add chicken to skillet. Cook 5 minutes, turning once. Stir in chicken broth and remaining 3 cloves garlic. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, until chicken is no longer pink in the thickest part, about 9 to 11 minutes. Transfer chicken to a platter and tent loosely with foil.
3. Add spinach to skillet in handfuls, tossing to mix with broth. Cook until spinach is wilted and broth has evaporated, about 2 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
4. To serve, divide spinach among 4 plates; then arrange chicken breasts over spinach. Top with a few spoonfuls of cantaloupe salsa and garnish with cilantro leaves if desired. Serve remaining salsa in a bowl on the side.
