Chicken Spinach & Mushroom Skillet

Mushrooms and spinach are such a delightful pair.  When I saw this chicken and spinach dish from Jenny it immediately made it on our menu.

We absolutely loved this dish -- and we can't wait to make it this summer when we can break out the grill and grill the chicken!!

Chicken Spinach and Mushroom Skillet - Adapted from Love Being in My Southern Kitchen

4 chicken breasts
Montreal Chicken/Steak seasoning
3 C fresh spinach, washed and trimmed
16 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
1-2 tsp. olive oil
Shredded cheese (we used Mozzarella, Provolone, Asiago and Parm mix)

Begin by sprinkling the seasoning over the chicken.  We used about 1 T.

Place the chicken into a skillet coated with olive oil.  Cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes, 7 minutes/side, until chicken is close to 180 degrees.  Alternatively, grill the chicken breasts.

When the chicken is almost done, add the mushrooms to the skillet and saute for 2-3 minutes.

Then, add in the spinach.

Cook these veggies until the liquids from the mushrooms evaporates and the chicken reaches 180 degrees.

Remove the dish from the heat, sprinkle the chicken breasts with cheese.  Cover and allow the cheese to melt.

Serve warm with brown rice and steamed veggies.
