Chicken Florentine

(adapted from Blogging-Its Whats for Dinner)

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar Classico Traditional Sweet Basil spaghetti sauce
1 cup cream, 1 cup milk
1/2 pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 box/pkg of your favorite noodle

Preheat oven to 375*. Place chicken breasts in Ziploc bag and flatten with a meat mallet. Place flattened chicken breasts in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle chicken liberally with garlic salt and pepper.

In a separate dish, combine sauce, cream, and spinach. If you can't find the Classico sauce, just use your favorite spaghetti sauce. No sweat. Pour entire mixture over the chicken, which will be crammed into the 9x13 baking dish. Don't stress because the chicken is squished. It's okay. Once you've poured the sauce over the chicken and finished stressing about how the chicken is squished in the pan, bake it uncovered at 375* for about 35 minutes. When it comes out of the oven, stir the sauce around as best as you can to incorporate everything again, and then dump your grated cheese all over the top and allow the cheese to melt before serving. Serve over your favorite noodle.

This is definitely one of my favorite go-to recipes...its the easiest thing you'll ever make, so delicious, and pretty healthy.
