IMG_8480

Spinach Cheese Chicken  (serves 4)

  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut horizontally
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cup spinach, rinsed (I used a whole bag of spinach)
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 oz Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 bottle Italian Dressing
  1. Add chicken and Italian dressing in a Ziplok bag. Seal the bag and massage so the chicken is covered in the marinade, set aside for 10-15 minutes while you prep the remaining ingredients. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400ºF (200°C).
  2. Quickly wilt the spinach in a skillet with 1-2 tablespoon olive oil, set aside.
  3. Arrange chicken breasts drained from the marinade in a baking dish.
  4. Cut the brick of softened cream cheese in 4 equal parts and spread each part over each chicken piece
  5. Lay spinach on top of the cream cheese.
  6. Sprinkle mozzarella over the top.
  7. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Chicken is done when cooked through to an internal temperature of 165˚F (75°C).  Serve warm with a side of cauliflower rice, or baked veggies. Enjoy!
