Spray two 18.6 ounce oven save baking dishes with non-stick spray. Click for 18.6 ounce baking dishes.

Line the baking dishes with a layer of spinach leaves, about 1 cup divided evenly.

Butterfly the chicken breasts. Slice them lengthwise and horizontally through the middle but not all the way through, leaving one side seam intact.

I highly recommend getting a fish filet knife for this. It even slices through frozen chicken. Mine never leaves my kitchen and will never see the inside of a fishing tackle box! This is a must have kitchen accessory for me. Click for a Rada Filet Knife with Leather Scabbard.
