  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Combine mushroom-garlic mixture, cream cheese, spinach, green onions, and red pepper flakes in a bowl.

  • Spoon 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture into the middle of each chicken breast. Roll chicken breasts around mixture and secure with toothpicks.

  • Heat remaining 3 tablespoons in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Arrange chicken rolls in the skillet in a single layer; cook until golden, about 5 minutes per side.

  • Transfer skillet to the preheated oven; bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 10 to 15 minutes more.
