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. —Katrina Wagner, Grain Valley, Missouri

Quick and easy to make. Used mozzarella cheese because that's what I had on hand. Also added a little minced garlic and salt and pepper to spinach and mushroom mixture. Tasted great and will make again.

This was delicious! We used a Weber's chicken seasoning and omitted the pecans but it was great! The chicken stayed juicy and it was a quick meal to prepare.

Easy to make and worthy of leftover, which is saying a lot because we don't like leftovers very often.
