Ingredients:  
2 tbsp Olive oil
3 cloves garlic
16 ounce bag fresh spinach
1 tsp parsley

1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp melted butter (or Olive oil)
1 tsp basil

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to bake at 350F

Smash and coarsely chop garlic. Add garlic and a 2-3 tbsp olive oil to cold, medium sauce pot & bring to medium heat. Add spinach, and saute until spinach is wilted and soft.

Put spinach mixture in a bowl and cool, reserving oil if desired for cooking (you can saute green beans or another veggie in this oil and serve as a side with this dish) Add parsley, salt, pepper and egg to spinach mixture, and mix well. Add cheddar cheese to spinach mixture, and mix well.

Take chicken breasts and butterfly them (if you make them like a pocket to stuff them, do so). Add spoonfuls of the spinach & cheese mixture down the center of each chicken breast until all of mixture is used. Fold/roll chicken breasts closed and secure bundles closed as much as you're able with toothpicks. Don't worry if you can't completely seal the bundles and cheese and spinach are exposed. Place on prepared baking sheet (lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray)

In a small bowl, combine lemon juice and butter (or olive oil) with basil, whisk until well combined. Drizzle lemon juice mixture over chicken bundles. Bake approximately 25 - 30 minutes, then check for doneness. Continue baking (if needed) until chick begins to brown on top and juices run clear.
