Spinach Cheese Chicken  (serves 4)

  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut horizontally (or frozen chicken breasts thawed)
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • Cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 2 cups 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 Ziploc 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 wilted spinach on top of the cream cheese.
  6. Add the cut cherry tomatoes.
  7. Sprinkle mozzarella over the top.
  8. 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 a vegetable. Enjoy!

 

NOTE: The pictures only show only 3 servings.  I used some “flat” frozen chicken breasts I had in the freezer, so I adjusted the ingredient amounts slightly down.  Stills tasted wonderfully using the frozen chicken!
