Ingredients

  • 1 14.5-oz can unsalted diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 8 skinless, boneless 
chicken thighs
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped yellow onion
  • 10-oz baby spinach
  • 1 large orange, peeled 
and sectioned

Preparation

  1. Prepare sauce: In a large skillet, stir together tomatoes, vinegar, garlic, paprika, pepper flakes and bay leaves. Add chicken, covering with sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 8 minutes. Remove chicken and pat dry with paper towels; set aside. Increase heat to medium-high; cook 10 minutes or until the sauce is slightly reduced.
  2. Meanwhile, in another large skillet, heat 2 tbsp oil on medium. Carefully add chicken and onion. Cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into chicken reads 165°F, turning chicken once and stirring onion as needed to avoid burning. Remove chicken and onion; cover to keep warm. Add remaining 1 tbsp oil to same skillet. Add spinach; cook just until wilted. Stir in orange sections.
  3. Remove bay leaves from sauce and discard. Divide spinach among plates; add chicken and onion. Spoon sauce over chicken.
