This is a great new take on Chicken Parmesan. It's delicious and filling! It has a creamy cheesy spinach stuffing. You can top it with your favorite sauce and add mozzarella to finish it off. Great served with roasted potatoes, garlic mashed potatoes, or some kind of pasta.

Not another ordinary Chicken Parmesan recipe here. This is a cross between stuffed chicken breast and Chicken Parmesan. The super creamy stuffing is spinach mixed with cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan. Once baked, the cracker and cheese coating is crunchy without the mess of frying. A tasty twist on Chicken Parmesan. When the chicken is baking, heat your favorite sauce and prepare the pasta of your choice. Serve alongside some garlic bread, too, for a fantastic family meal.
