Chicken Florentine

This dish tastes as good as it is beautiful and is part of a rotation of meals that I know that I can quickly put together on even the busiest day.

I'm a fan of Stouffer's - I have spent a good 1/3 of my life eating Lean Cuisine while dieting! One of my favorite frozen side dishes is their Spinach Souffle - it's light, fluffy, creamy, really good tasting and surprisingly low in calories, carbs and fat. DO NOT confuse it with their Creamed Spinach which is quadruple the calories. This is such a good supper!  Chicken - Stouffer's Spinach Souffle - Mushrooms - Swiss Cheese! One two three four main items to YUM. 

Ingredients

  • 3 large boneless chicken breast halves, about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds
  • Salt and pepper
