Step 1

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Grill on an outdoor or indoor grill; keep warm while making the rest of the recipe.

Meanwhile, sauté the mushrooms in the 2 tablespoons of butter until tender and set aside.

Make the Alfredo sauce.

Add the cooked mushrooms and spinach to the sauce and heat through over very low heat just until the spinach has wilted.

Gradually whisk in a little water if the sauce is too thick. Serve the sauce over the chicken.

Alfredo Sauce
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.

Add the garlic, pepper and cream and simmer about 2 minutes minutes. Gradually whisk in the parmesan cheese.

Simmer another 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened and the cheese has completely melted.

Very gradually whisk in the mozzarella cheese, whisking constantly.

Wait to add the water until after you see if adding the vegetables makes enough of a difference.
