Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law.  When I asked her for the recipe, she said she didn't really have one.  It was something she just made.  I have tried to add an ingredient list with some measurements, but I can't take any credit for the creative genius behind this recipe.

This recipe is a pretty easy way to dress up chicken for dinner.  I served it with seasoned rice and green beans.  The kids ate it all surprisingly well!

½ t poultry seasoning
