Chicken Breast Florentine

from: Meet me in the Kitchen
1/2 cup flour
2 large eggs
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup frozen spinach, thawed
2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
3 T olive oil
2 whole, boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half and pounded lightly or chicken tenders
1 or 2 jars marinara sauce
shredded mozzarella cheese
whole wheat angel hair pasta, cooked

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the flour in a bowl large enough to dredge the chicken breasts in.
2. Combine the eggs, cheese, spinach, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl, blending well. The mixture should be the consistency of pancake batter.
3. Place the olive oil in a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Dredge the chicken breasts first in the flour, dusting off any excess and then in the batter and carefully place in the hot oil. Saute, turning once, until golden brown on both sides ( about 3 minutes per side), Pour marinara sauce in a 9 by 13 inch dish. Place the chicken breasts in the marinara. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese and place in the oven for 15 minutes.
4. Serve over warm angel hair pasta ( I served spaghetti noodles)
