Joy's Super Tasty Chicken & Spinach Delight - Crock-Pot

I created this recipe because I wanted the ease of the crockpot AND wanted to use some spinach I had in the freezer. This recipe is great because you can use frozen ingredients!! I'm really proud of my creation because it's tasty, mostly healthy and everyone loved it! You can play around with the cheese toppings. I had planned to use Swiss, but used Monterey Jack instead because it was what I had on hand. I had also planned to use 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, but only had 1/8 on hand, so that's what I used. I served the chicken whole, topped with spinach, mushrooms and cheese with a salad on the side.

Delish! I omitted most of the cheese except for the parm to make it a little healthier. Also the timing may be a bit off because on high with fresh chicken it took about 3 hours. It might just be my crock though :) Very good recipe though!

This was so easy to make. Had all the ingredients on the shelf.<br/>My wife advised me to cut the salt in half next time.<br/>I used chicken tenders instead of the breast.

Very tasty!!! Even my 4 yr old loved it!!! Only thing i would do different is to obmit the salt. With all the cheeses it made it a little salty.
