1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

4 (4 oz) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 wedges Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Garlic and Herb cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.

  3. Place one chicken breast on a cutting board and cover it with plastic wrap. Pound the chicken with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Repeat this process for the other 3 chicken breasts.

  6. To serve, remove the toothpicks and slice each breast into 5 rounds.
