Paleo Italian Chicken

3-4 chicken breasts cut in half
5-7 Campari Tomatoes diced  (or any bright red juicy tomatoes will work, if using a large style tomato use about 2)
cooking spray (substitute any Paleo friendly cooking oil like coconut or grape seed oil)
1 tsp. Oregano
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. marjoram
Or you can substitute 2 tbsp. Italian Seasoning for the above 5 ingredients ( I like it better with all of the seasonings individually because you can add more of your preference).
1 tsp. fresh minced garlic ( I use about 2 tsp(s)
1 tsp. pepper
1-2 cups fresh rinsed spinach
1/4 cup water only if needed (can use additional if needed)

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray, cook chicken breast covered on medium heat for about 5-8 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
Add tomatoes, all seasonings and stir well.
Simmer for about 5 minutes covered
If there is not enough liquid add about a 1/4 cup of water at a time and stir
Add Spinach over the top, cover and simmer for about 2-3 more minutes or until Spinach starts to wilt and turns bright green
