I thought it looked DEE-licious, but I was concerned there wouldn’t be enough “heat” to it, so I added a little heat - PLUS - I made it spread out to six servings!  Here’s what I did -


I bought three boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut them in half.  Using Common Core math……the result is  I have six THIN boneless, skinless chicken breasts now.  Then I took a hammer……not a Craftsman..a “kitchen” hammer to beat these six breasts one at a time in a baggie until they are begging for mercy.  Pound away - flatten those babies!!!!!!




I used fresh spinach - 5 oz package - and sautéed it in olive oil along with 3 cloves of minced garlic.   Add the pepper-jack cheese, salt, and pepper...




She's not kidding about the toothpicks.  You need a lot to seal these creatures.  If not - and trust me, I now know - you will have cheese goo leaking out onto the aluminum foil.  Now I'm all about num-nums leaking out and becoming a peel-and-eat thing off of aluminium foil- but this doesn't peel well.  Keep that gooey stuff in the breasts with toothpicks!!!!!

NOTE TO READERS - LOOK ABOVE!!!!!!  See how "a lot" is two words!?!?!?!  





To the breadcrumb and Cajun seasoning mixture, I added 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes.  The next time I will use 3 teaspoons.  I’m ashamed of how amateurish I was with that one little baby teaspoon.   




The result?  Chickenspinachcheesespicy Heaven!!!!!!
