Grilled Chicken with spinach & mozzarella

Grilled Chicken with Spinach & Melted Mozzarella

·                   (3 large) chicken breasts sliced in half lengthwise to make 6 cutlets
·                  salt and pepper to taste
·                  1 tsp olive oil
·                  3 cloves garlic, crushed
          9 or    10 oz frozen spinach, drained
·                  3 oz fresh mozzarella
·                  1 roasted red pepper, sliced in strips
·                  olive oil spray

For this recipe I used fresh pearl mozzarella (i think they almost look like mini marshmallows!)
I could only finf a box of 9 oz. frozen spinach, so either works. I also bought the glass containor of roasted red peppers for convenience. 

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°. 
Season chicken with salt and pepper,  grill outside Cook chicken on the grill until no longer pink, careful not to overcook or you'll have dry chicken.

Meanwhile, heat a sauté pan on medium heat. Add oil and garlic, sauté a few seconds, add spinach, salt and pepper. Cook
 a few minutes until heated through.

When chicken is done, lay on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment for easy clean-up. Divide spinach evenly between the 6 pieces and place on top. 



Top each with half oz mozzarella, then slices of roasted pepper and bake until melted, about 6-8 minutes.
