4 boneless chicken breast halves
1 heaping tablespoon honey Dijon mustard
Dash of salt, to taste
Coarsely ground black pepper, or seasoned pepper, to taste
2 (8-ounce) packages baby spinach, or 1 pound fresh spinach leaves, washed and dried
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
Chopped fresh cilantro or parsley, optional
Sliced almonds, toasted, optional
Grease the crockery insert of the slow cooker or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Pat chicken breasts dry.
Rub the chicken with the honey mustard; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Arrange the chicken breasts in the crockery insert of the slow cooker. Top with spinach. (If your slow cooker is too small for all of the spinach, steam it briefly and add the wilted spinach leaves.)
Dot spinach with butter and sprinkle with more salt and pepper.
Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours.
Garnish with cilantro or parsley or sprinkle with toasted almonds before serving, if desired.
To toast almonds, add to a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook, constantly stirring, until lightly browned and aromatic.
