I got this recipe from a book that was at the check-out line at the grocery store. I leaf through them while waiting and if there are more than four good-looking recipes, I buy it. If not, I leave it. They can get expensive. Anyway, this is a tasty one. Serve it with my Lemon Pasta and it makes a great meal.

Husband said "restaurant quality" and my two kids loved it! I had a little pesto sauce so I brushed a little on the chicken before topping with the cheese and spinach. I also used a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and onion instead of sauce. I served with the lemon pasta and it was also very good.
