Spinach and Mushroom Smothered Chicken

Posted in Chicken at 10:14 am by Sheila OConnell

Chicken breasts stay moist with a mushroom and spinach topping over a blanket of cheese.

3 cups fresh baby spinach
1 3/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
3 green onions, sliced
2 tbsp chopped pecans
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 4 oz each)
salt, pepper, garlic powder
2 slices provolone or swiss cheese, halved

In a large skillet, saute the spinach, mushrooms, onions and pecans in oil until the mushrooms are tender. Set aside and keep warm.

Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and a little garlic powder.

Broil chicken 4 inches from heat for 4 – 5 minutes on each side or until meat thermometer reads 170.

Top with cheese.  Cover and broil 2 – 3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

To serve, top each chicken breast with reserved spinach mixture.  Serves 4.
