Ingredients:

2 packs of fresh Mushrooms
Olive oil
1 container (8oz) of cooking cream cheese (Lemon flavored)

Basil
Salt and pepper
Toothpicks

1. Use a meat mallet and pound each chicken breast until its about ¼ inch thick
2. Put a bit of salt, pepper and basil on both sides of the chicken and set the chicken aside (leave at room temperature)
3. Finely chop the mushrooms
4. Heat a large skillet with some olive oil and place mushrooms in it
5. Season mushrooms with some basil and pepper
6. Once the mushrooms have released some water and are about half way cooked add the fresh spinach to the skillet and stir frequently until the mixture is cooked
7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
8. Let the mushroom/spinach mix cool for about 10 minutes ( put in fridge for quicker cooling)
9. Stir cream cheese into the mushroom/spinach mix
10. Carefully spoon the mixture onto each chicken breast (about 2-3 tsp per breast) making sure to leave a ½ inch border
11. Roll each chicken breast and secure with toothpicks (kind of like with Chicken Cordon Bleu)
12. Once all the chicken breasts are filled, place any leftover mushroom/spinach mixture on top of the chicken breasts
13. Bake for 30 minutes
