Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

All I can say about this recipe is that my daughter said "mom this tastes like something you'd get in a restaurant" We will definitely make this again. The original recipe came from  I didn't quite have all of the ingredients so I made some substitutions.

2 chicken breasts
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon italian seasoning ( I did not have the oregano called for in the original recipe)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup parmesan (I did not have fresh and so used powdered)
1/4 cup swiss cheese (I did not have shredded and so I used two slices cut into small pieces)
1/4 cup chopped spinach

In a bowl mix together everything except the chicken and spinach.

 Now add in the spinach and coat well.

Now split open the chicken breasts.

Now, stuff each of the chicken breasts:

I had a little bit of mixture left over and so I sprinkled it on top of the chicken.

Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.

This last photo does not do the recipe justice. As I said, it was delicious!!

You know, for someone who bakes/cooks so much, I've never made a stuffed chicken recipe. This looks yummy and healthy (I'm trying to eat healthier).
