Spinach Jalapeno Stuffed Chicken Breasts - I made this because I had jalapeno stuffed cheesy bread from dominos previously and thought I could come up with a healthier and just as satisfying version. 

Large Chicken Breasts (thawed/fresh, they have to be big enough to stuff)
Fresh Spinach
Pickled Jalapenos
Reduced Fat Provolone

One. Saute mushrooms in a pan over medium heat, sprinkle with garlic powder and pepper.

Two. Chop mushrooms, jalapenos, and spinach into small chunks. Mix together.

Three. Cut a slice through the side middle of the thick part of the chicken. 

Four. Lay a section of cheese on the bottom of the opening in the chicken.

Five. Fill with as much mix as possible. Seal the side with another section of cheese and whole spinach leaf. (the extra cheese is just an excuse for cheese, but really who needs an excuse for cheese?!)

Six. Wrap in tin foil (or close the breast with twine suitable for cooking if you have it)

Seven. Bake for 28 minutes at 375 degrees, or until juices run clear.

Eight. Sear in a pan after cooking to slightly brown.
