Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

I finally got to make something I thought was blog worthy. While Owen slept I prepped the chicken. It really was very simple but yummy. I served it simply with some whole wheat pasta mixed with olive oil and parmesan cheese. I didn't measure but here are my estimates. Enjoy!

4 chicken breast, about 3 oz. each
4 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed
4 TBSP light cream cheese
1 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 TBSP dried basil
1 TBSP dried oregano

Lay the chicken on a cutting board and cover with a piece of saran wrap and pound with a kitchen mallet until they are about 1/4 of an inch thick. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Spread 1/4 of the mixture on each breast. Roll up and secure with a toothpick or two. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
