RECIPE BACKSTORY
I often cook with whatever's on hand in the kitchen and rarely have the foresight to properly shop for ingredients at the grocery store (unless of course I'm inspired to make something specific like melt-in-your-mouth macadamia nut cookies, ahem). So I noticed that the spinach I bought was on it's last leg and figured I better make something fast because I really, really hate to waste food. I got inspired by a Allrecipes.com recipe of a spinach stuffed chicken breast.
