I LOVED this dinner! The chicken had a fantastic, simple flavor though I wish I had found some fresh oregano that didn’t look like death warmed over to use. Instead, I opted for the dried version. Even still, the chicken was incredibly moist and the lemon poppy vinaigrette mixed with the spinach was very light and paired well with this dish. You can add whatever vegetables you wish to the salad, I just went simple as I was yet again in a hurry.
