Blogger Chicken

Okay. So I had some boneless, skinless chicken thighs in the fridge that desperately needed to be cooked. Looked over a few recipes and came across one I thought sounded great on another blog page. I gave it a whirl (with my own twist).

Blogger Chicken:

boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 bag fresh spinach
~1/3 red onion, sliced
cream cheese (~3 tbls)
parmesan cheese
4 cloves garlic, minced
8 oz. package baby bella mushrooms, sliced
swiss cheese slices
1/2 cup white wine
4 tbls. butter
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
seasoned salt
garlic powder

First prep the chicken: Spray dish and arrange the chicken. Sprinkle with garlic powder, seasoned salt and pepper (or whatever you like). Bake @ 350 for about 13 minutes, depending on your oven (I did about 15). Pull chicken out when time is up.
Meanwhile, saute mushrooms and 2 cloves of garlic in olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add wine. I also sprinkled on pepper. Cook this for a good bit to let the wine flavor simmer with the mushrooms (tastes excellent in the end).
While mushrooms are going, prep spinach mixture. Dress pan with olive oil and add red onion, garlic (2 cloves) and pepper. Saute ~2 minutes over medium heat. Add most of the bag of fresh spinach and allow to wilt while continuing to stir. When spinach is wilted, turn off heat and add cream cheese and parmesan cheese to mix. Combine.

Layer spinach mixture over chicken first and top with mushrooms. Finish with a slice of fresh swiss cheese.
Return pan to oven (@ 350) for 13-15 minutes (enough to melt cheese and cook chicken all the way through).

RESULT


Cheesy deliciousness. So, this was very good, even making it for the first time! I would only tweak a few things. Again, from the original recipe I definitely eyeball spices and measurements. I would maybe add some red pepper flakes next time to give a bit of a kick, but it was great without that. Husband DID NOT even use Tabasco on this! That does NOT happen in this house. This was pretty simple and can be used with different cuts of chicken. Will make again!!
