4-5 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 medium bag fresh spinach leaves
1 medium tomato sliced in 4-5 slices
4-5 slices of mozzarella or jack cheese
2 eggs, beaten
Gluten Free Panko style bread crumbs, approximately 1 cup
Olive Oil for frying
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Empty bag of spinach into a 13x9 inch baking dish. It will look like a lot of spinach, but it will cook down considerably. Pour olive oil approximately a quarter of the way up in a skillet and heat on medium heat. In the meantime, dip chicken in egg and then bread crumbs (if your gluten free panko crumbs are not seasoned you can season with a 1/4 tsp of Italian herbs and 1/4 tsp. of seasoning salt or salt of choice). Once oil is hot enough that a few crumbs dropped in the hot oil sizzle, place chicken in skillet and brown on both sides, a couple at a time. Place browned chicken on top of spinach and top each breast with a slice of tomato, a sprinkle of Parmesan and a piece of sliced cheese.
Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned and the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
