Posted by Stacey @ Savory & Sweet on March 14, 2012 at 4:00 PM

The perfect mid-work week meal that makes you look like you spent hours on it! ;)

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

2 Cups Fresh Baby Spinach Leaves

1-1/2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder

1 Tablespoon Onion Powder

2 Tsp Salt

2 Tsp Fresh Ground Pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder in a small bowl. Butterfly the chicken breast by running your knife down, length-wise on the thick side of the breast, until it can lay flat. Season both sides with salt & pepper mix. Laying breast butterflied side up, place spinach leaves to cover. Sprinkle cheese to cover leaves. Not too thick, but enough that the breasts can still be folded over. Fold over one side of the breast and slightly roll to the end. Use 3 or so toothpicks to keep it closed. Heat a large skillet w/ olive oil. Brown chicken on all sides. Place on a baking sheet covered in aluminum foil. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of each piece. Bake for 10 minute, until cheese is melted. Enjoy w/ mashed potatoes, gravy and your favorite veggies!
