About this Recipe

This deliciously savoury dish is deceivingly easy to prepare. It looks and tastes like gourmet, but in less than 30 minutes, dinner is ready!


1 Package Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Thin Slice Chicken Breasts
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp (30 mL) Butter
2 tbsp (30 mL) Olive oil
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 (8 oz/227 g) Package sliced mushrooms
3 cups (750 mL) Packed baby spinach
2 tsp (10 mL) Chopped fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, parsley), optional
1 cup (250 mL) Grated Gruyere or Swiss cheese


SEASON the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.

HEAT 1 tbsp (15 mL) each, of butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Remove from the pan and keep warm.

Heat the remaining olive oil and butter in the same pan until frothy. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring for 6-7 minutes or until browned. Add garlic and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss in herbs and stir to combine.

PREHEAT broiler to high. Arrange the chicken on a parchment lined baking sheet. Top with mushroom and spinach mixture, dividing equally. Sprinkle with cheese and broil for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is hot and bubbly. Serve hot with your favourite side dish.


Try this with roasted sweet potatoes and parsnips.
