Ingredients

  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion

  • 1 package 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cup julienned sweet red pepper 2-in. pieces

  • Carefully loosen chicken skin on one side of each chicken breast half to form a pocket; stuff with spinach mixture. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until juices run clear.
