Ingredients:

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced (about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 Tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1/2 cup apple cider
1 medium Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced
6 cups fresh baby spinach or chopped Swiss chard

Directions:

1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper, and add to skillet. Cook 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until well-browned. Remove to plate. Cover and keep warm.
