Smothered Chicken with Mushrooms & Spinach

Chicken with sautéed mushrooms and creamed spinach – a full meal! If you get everything prepped ahead of time, this recipe comes together REALLY fast.

Servings 4 | Preparation time 30mins | Cooking time 40mins



1 large bag of spinach leaves

1/2 (8-ounce) package cream cheese

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons red onion, minced

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste


8-ounce package mushrooms, sliced

1/2 stick butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup white wine

2 cloves garlic, minced

Salt and pepper, to taste


4 to 5 boneless chicken breasts

8 to 10 slices Mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/8 inch slices

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon seasoned salt, like Lawry’s

1 teaspoon pepper


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Sprinkle the garlic powder, seasoned salt, and pepper on both sides of the chicken. Bake for 16 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the creamed spinach. Over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet. Add in the onions and saute 2-3 minutes. Add in the spinach and garlic. It will shrink ridiculously. When it’s cooked through, stir in the cream cheese and parmesan cheese. Continue cooking and stirring until the cream cheese is melted. Remove from heat.

For the mushrooms, melt butter, and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet. Put the mushrooms in and cook until browned all over. Don’t season with salt until they are browned or they will never brown. Deglaze the pan with the wine. Add in the garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook until most of the wine is cooked out.

Flip the chicken pieces over. Divide the spinach and mushrooms over the top of each breast. Lay two slices of cheese over each piece of chicken. Cook another 12-14 minutes or until cheese is browned and chicken is done.
