Ingredients

10 oz  frozen chopped spinach
4 each  boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp  salt
1 tsp  poultry seasoning
1 each  cooking spray
1 tbsp  Margarine, 80% fat, unsalted
2 tbsp  cornstarch
1 1/2 cup  fat free half and half
0 1/2 cup  shredded Swiss cheese
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
0.125 tsp  ground nutmeg
0 1/4 tsp  paprika
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook the spinach according to the package directions, (leaving out any salt.) Drain well.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken all over with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt and the poultry seasoning. Place the chicken breasts in a cooking spray coated 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Place the spinach over and around the chicken.
  4. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the margarine. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and half-and-half, then whisk the mixture into the margarine. Cook, whisking frequently, until the mixture bubbles and thickens.
  5. Remove from the heat and stir in the Swiss cheese, black pepper, nutmeg, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt until the cheese is melted.
  6. Spoon the sauce evenly over the chicken and sprinkle with the paprika. Bake until an instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees F in a breast and the juices run clear, 25 to 30 minutes.
