Spinach and Mushroom Smothered Chicken




Chicken breasts stay nice and moist with a mushroom and spinach topping tucked under a blanket of melted cheese. It's extra special to serve but is not tricky to make.

Spinach and Mushroom Smothered Chicken

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1-3/4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon rotisserie chicken seasoning
  • 2 slices reduced-fat provolone cheese, halved

Directions:
  1. In a large skillet, saute the spinach, mushrooms, onions and pecans in oil until mushrooms are tender. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  3. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°.
  4. Top with cheese. Cover and grill 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. To serve, top each chicken breast with reserved spinach mixture.
