Smoky Spinach Chicken Bake

An easy and flavorful baked chicken dish perfect for a winter dinner. Marinate the chicken ahead of time, top with a wilted spinach mixture, and finish baking with a smoked cheese on top. Delicious!


4 skinless boneless chicken breasts (not too thick)
½ cup honey mustard dressing (I use my homemade honey mustard)
¼ cup dry white wine
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 small shallots – chopped
3 cloves garlic – minced
4 cups fresh baby spinach
Salt and pepper
¾ cup smoked cheese such as provolone or gouda or Havarti – shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking dish with non-stick foil.
  • Stir together honey mustard dressing, wine, and black pepper. Marinate chicken in mixture for about two hours.
  • Prepare spinach topping just before you’re ready to bake the chicken. Heat oil and butter in a skillet. Add shallots and garlic until soft and lightly browned. Salt and pepper to taste. Add spinach and stir constantly until wilted. Set aside.
  • Remove chicken breasts from marinade and place in baking dish. Throw away the marinade. Top chicken with spinach mixture.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes until juices run clear. Top with cheese for the last 5 minutes of baking.
