(You can add as much as you like. 6.Distribute spinach mixture onto each chicken breast. (You may have some leftover). 7.Wrap chicken around mixture (like wrapping a taco) and secure with toothpicks (be sure you count how many toothpicks you put into each and remove them all when done) 8.Rub some oil onto each breast, and just put a very light coating of the very finely crushed bread crumbs just to coat them lightly. You will barely see the bread coating. Season with salt and pepper. 9.Place in glass baking dish and pour butter over them. 10.Cook for 30 minutes, cover the glass dish with a lid or foil for the first 15 minutes. 11.Remove the lid or foil for the last 15 minutes (or until done) to brown up the chicken
