Spinach and Mushroom Smothered  Chicken Recipe

Spinach and Mushroom Smothered Chicken Recipe

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
