Bring the balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small sauce pan and then reduce heat and simmer until it becomes a thick syrup, stirring often and making sure not to burn. Remove from heat & set aside. Grill chicken 8-10 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. About 3-5 minutes before the chicken is done place the cheese and tomato slice on top of chicken. Remove from heat and serve on a bed of baby spinach. Finally drizzle the balsamic reduction over the chicken and spinach.
