Makes 4 servings.


2 six-ounce skinless and boneless chicken breasts

3 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth

3 cups baby spinach, lightly packed

4 leaves bok choy

1/2 cup sliced scallions, green and white parts

2 clementines

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 teaspoon grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce (optional)

1/4 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted


  • In medium saucepan, place chicken and broth over medium-high heat.
