  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with sides with foil.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Rub seasoned salt under skin into chicken being careful not to remove skin completely. Cook in butter, skin side down, 3 to 4 minutes without moving, until chicken releases easily from pan. Turn chicken; reduce heat to medium, and cook 3 to 4 minutes longer or until chicken easily releases from pan. Turn off heat, and reserve pan with juices. Transfer chicken to cookie sheet. Bake 30 to 34 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to the bone (at least 165°F).

    Meanwhile, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in skillet, then add onion. Cook 5 to 6 minutes or until onion is translucent and begins to brown. Add apple; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add mustard and broth; cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Add spinach, and stir until wilted.

    Place a chicken breast on each of 4 plates. Divide sauce among plates.

Expert Tips

  • No shallots? No problem. You can substitute regular onion.
  • If chicken breasts haven't reached the safe temperature of 165°F, continue baking a few minutes longer.
