Easy Smothered Asiago Chicken with Spinach and Mushrooms Recipe
I really gravitate to dishes that are simple to put together and flavorful to boot. Entrees that are quick and simple are what weekday meals are made for. Simple dishes like bacon wrapped barbecue chicken and pepperoni pizza chicken can be popped into the oven while you whip-up the complimentary sides. The same is true for this easy chicken breast recipe. To make it, the chicken pieces are seasoned and seared then smothered with spinach and mushrooms then topped with the robust flavor of Asiago cheese. It's one of those everyday dishes that I love to make, and it's special enough to serve to company.
