Equipment

  • Aluminum Foil
  • Baking Sheet
  • Saucepan

Ingredients

  • 5 chicken breasts
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 5 slices Provolone cheese
  • 1 bundle green onions
  • 5 Tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • Place smothered and seasoned chicken into the oven and cook for 16 minutes
  • While the chicken cooks, start cooking the ingredients, listed below.
  • Heat stove to medium-high heat
  • Cut mushrooms into your preferable size (they do shrink so i cut them into inch-long pieces)
  • Chop green onions and place in the pan with the mushrooms
  • Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the ingredients and saute until brown and soft

Spinach

  • Heat stove top to medium hot temperature
  • Place spinach in the pan a cupful at a time (It shrinks as it cooks, but if you put it all in at once, it will fall out of the pan as you saute it)
  • Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the spinach and sauté.
  • Sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese over the spinach and melt it along with the spinach, Mushrooms and Green Onions
  • After 16 minutes, take the chicken out from the oven
  • Put mushroom and onion mixture on top, cooked spinach, and a slice of provolone cheese
  • Place back into oven and continue cooking for 10 more minutes

Notes

  • If you are looking for an alternative sauce, we recommend teriyaki sauce or honey mustard. They both go perfectly with this recipe, and all the flavor is still there, and delicious.
