I had this for dinner and just had to share. I normally don't like traditional chicken parmesan, but this was very clean and refreshing! From So Easy, Ellie Krieger
1 loaf whole-grain Italian bread (about any artisan bread will do-remember no artificial junk)
2 c. marinara sauce (read the ingredients on the jar and stay few and natural)
4 5oz. cooked skinless boneless chicken breasts (look for local pastured chickens for the healthiest meat)
4 cups baby spinach leaves
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat broiler. Slice bread in half lengthwise, then in half again crosswise so you have 4 pieces. Scoop out the soft inner portion and save for snaking. Place bread scooped side up on baking pan. Spoon 1/4 cup of sauce into each bread piece. Lay a piece of chicken on top and cover with 1 cup spinach leaves. Pour another 1/4 cup of sauce on top of spinach and sprinkle each sandwich with 1/4 cup mozzarella and 1 Tbsp. of Parmesan. Broil until the spinach is wilted and cheese is bubbly, about 4-5 minutes.

This was so easy, quick, and very satisfying. It's a good source of calcium, protein, folate, vitamins C, A, E, K, and B complex, manganese, potassium, and magnesium. Spinach is also a great food for maintaining colon health. Enjoy!
