  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 10-ounce frozen spinach
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon basil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Lightly spray a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.

  9. Drizzle ½ cup of sauce over chicken and bake for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
