Rated as 4.15 out of 5 Stars

"A good friend shared this recipe with me years ago, and I've used it often. With the creamy sauce and lovely look of this dish, even people who aren't very fond of spinach seem to enjoy it served this way. -Sue Braunschweig, Delafield, Wisconsin"

  1. Drain and squeeze out excess moisture from spinach. Beat eggs, onion salt and nutmeg. Add spinach and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; mix well. Combine bread crumbs and remaining Parmesan. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper; coat with crumb mixture. Place in two greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pans. Spread 2 tablespoons spinach mixture onto each breast. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture; drizzle with butter. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
  2. For sauce, melt 4 tablespoons butter; blend in flour and salt. Stir to form a smooth paste. Add milk; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add cheese and stir until melted. Saute mushrooms in remaining butter. Stir into cheese mixture. Carefully pour sauce over chicken, or pour into a serving bowl and pass.

This was delicious! I made it without the sauce, and it was just perfect. I will definitely be making this again.

It has good flavor. I will pound the chicken breast to half inch next time so it is more tender, cook faster, and the spinach on top won't become quite so crispy. I reduced the recipe to four...
