Chicken with crockpot spinach potatoes

6 Nov

This was our last meal before we lost power during the hurricane. The chicken was pretty good. I think I would have liked it better with a different cheese something with more flavor. The potatoes were a little too spinachy for me!


Grilled Chicken with Spinach and Melted Mozzarella
adapted from skinny taste

1lb thin sliced chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
10 oz frozen spinach, drained (I used fresh)
3 oz shredded part skim mozzarella
1/2 cup roasted red pepper, sliced in strips (packed in water)
olive oil spray


Preheat oven to 400°. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Lightly spray a grill with oil or grill outside on a gas grill. Cook chicken on the grill until no longer pink, careful not to overcook or you’ll have dry chicken.

Meanwhile, heat a sauté pan on medium heat. Add oil and garlic, sauté a few seconds, add spinach, salt and pepper. Cook a few minutes until heated through.

When chicken is done, lay on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment for easy clean-up. Divide spinach evenly between the 6 pieces and place on top. Top each with half oz mozzarella, then slices of roasted pepper and bake until melted, about 6-8 minutes.
