Spinach & Mushroom Chicken




This recipe is sure to impress, and isn't too hard. It tastes amazing. But then again, anything with cream cheese does. It has mushrooms in it, which I'm a sucker for, and WINE! I love cooking with wine because the cork is usually demolished when trying to open it and well, cant let it go to waste so i guess ill just drink it all! he he he...enjoy...



You will need:

1 bag spinach leafs
4oz cream cheese
1/4 C shredded parmesan cheese
4 cloves minced garlic, halfed
4 T olive oil, halfed
Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz fresh sliced mushroom
1/2 stick butter
1/2 C white wine (yayyyy!)
4-5 boneless chicken breasts
4 C Mozzarella cheese
1 T garlic powder
1 T seasoned salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Sprinkle the garlic powder, seasoned salt, and pepper on both sides of the chicken.  Bake for 16 minutes.


While that cooks, melt 2 T olive oil in a skillet Over medium-high heat.   Add in the spinach and garlic.  Don't fret if it shrinks, it's supposed to!  When it's cooked through, stir in the cream cheese and Parmesan cheese.  Continue cooking and stirring until the cream cheese is melted.  Remove from heat.





Next, melt butter and 2 T olive oil in a skillet on medium heat.  Add  mushrooms and cook until browned. Add wine, garlic and season with salt and pepper.  Cook about 10 minutes





Back in the oven, flip the chicken pieces. Smother the spinach mix over the chicken, and top with mushrooms.  Sprinkle in the Mozzarella cheese.  Cook another 12-14 minutes or until cheese is browned and chicken is done.
