  1. In large skillet on medium heat up oil.

5.  Dredge chicken in milk mixture, shake off excess, coat in bread crumbs.

6.  Place coated chicken in skillet, cook 3-5 minutes per side.  It should be golden brown on each side.

7.  Spoon marinara sauce into bottom of casserole dish, just until bottom is covered.  Place chicken on top of sauce.  Layer with spinach.  Pour  sauce over top, until spinach or chicken is covered.  Sprinkle with parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.

8.  Cover with foil. Bake 350 for about 20 min.

 

Serve over your favorite pasta or gnocchi.

 

*If using coconut oil, please note that it will make the chicken taste sweeter and a bit like coconut.  Its what we use here without complaints.
