Recipe by Miss Annie
READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Pour half the olive oil into a very large frying pan to film the bottom.
  • Over low heat, gradually add the spinach by handfuls, cover, and stir from time to time as it cooks down.
  • When all the spinach is barely wilted, put it in a sieve and press out most of the moisture.
  • Spread the spinach in a wide, shallow ovenproof dish and set aside.
  • Salt and pepper the chicken cutlets on both sides.
  • Add the remaining oil to the pan and over medium-high heat saute the chicken, turning to color it golden on both sides.
  • When the chicken is done, lay the cutlets on the spinach.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the pine nuts and blue cheese.
  • Scatter this mixture over the chicken (This much can be done ahead).
  • Bake the chicken until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the chicken and spinach are piping hot, about 15 minutes.
  • Serve at once.
