Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients:

  • 4 to 6 boneless chicken breast halves, about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 packages (12 ounces each) frozen spinach soufflé, thawed
  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese or 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preparation:

Lightly grease an 11x7-inch baking dish. Heat oven to 350°.

Wash chicken and pat dry. Put chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and pound gently until an even thickness. Presliced thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts can be used in place of the chicken breast halves.

In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sprinkle chicken breasts with seasoned salt or salt and pepper; dip into the flour to coat thoroughly. Cook the chicken for 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Arrange browned chicken in the baking dish. Spoon spinach evenly over the chicken.

Toss bread crumbs with melted butter, add the salt and Parmesan cheese; toss to blend. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the spinach. Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes.
Serves 4 to 6.

Chicken Florentine? Not quite but still good., Member jlynny1

I made this for dinner tonight even though after looking at the recipe I saw nothing that resembled chicken florentine. Yes, it does have chicken and spinach but it's not a chicken florentine type dish. That said, I made my own spinach souffle instead of using frozen and everything came out pretty good. If I would have had frozen I probably would have used it. Good meal for a night that you don't have a lot of time. Pound out your chicken the night before or in the morning before heading out the door to cut down on prep time. 3 stars (it says good, dependable recipe which is what this is)
