It was my dad’s 85th birthday and he loves creamed spinach, so I decided to make a chicken spanakopita to celebrate.
4 chicken breasts
two packages puff pastry
one package creamed spinach
1- Pull puff pastry out of freezer about 20 minutes prior to begin cooking
2- Rub dijon mustard onto chicken breasts and let sit.
3- When ready to begin cooking; preheat oven to 325 degrees.
4- Coat pan with olive oil and heat over medium heat
5- Cook chicken until no longer pink in center. About 5 minutes on each side
6- Cook creamed spinach as directed
7- Place chicken in center of puff pastry. Cover with creamed spinach and fold puff pastry to cover.
8- Place in coated oven safe dish with puff pastry seam on bottom.
9- Cook until pastry is slightly browned.
