HOW TO MAKE SPINACH AND MUSHROOM SMOTHERED CHICKEN

Step 1: Ready the grill and preheat it.

Step 2: Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the green onions and mushrooms to the skillet. Saute the veggies until soft. Next, add the pecans along with the spinach. Continue to cook until tender.

Step 3: Take the skillet off the heat when done and cover to keep the veggies warm.

Step 4: On the entire chicken, sprinkle the seasonings and rub until well coated. On the preheated grill, lay the chicken and cook on all sides until done. Add the cheese on top and continue to cook for a couple of minutes until melted.

Step 5: To serve, top each serving with the mushroom mixture. Enjoy right away!
