Spinach-Sauced Chicken Breast Halves
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken, cut into 4 oz portions
3/4 cup Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup Scallions
2 TBSP Butter
2 TBSP Flour
1 cup milk
1 bag of fresh spinach or 1 10oz box chopped frozen spinach
4 oz diced Ham
Chopped mushrooms, optional
Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan. Coat Chicken w/crumb mixture and arrange in a rectangle baking dish.
In a saucepan cook green onions(and mushrooms if using) in butter. Stir in flour and milk until thickened and bubbly. Stir in spinach and ham. Cook an additional 2 minutes.
Spoon mixture over chicken, sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes. This reheats really well, so works well for lunch leftovers.
