2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 1/2 Package (10 oz) Spinach
1/4 Tsp Salt
3/4 Tsp Pepper
2 Tbsp Butter
5 2/3 Grams Chicken Breast Tenders
1 1/2 Cup, bite size Cheese Crackers
1/3 Cup Dijon Mustard


Put oven rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 475F.

Brush a large shallow baking pan with oil (2 tablespoons).

Pulse crackers in a food processor until finely ground, then transfer to a wide shallow bowl and stir in 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

Toss tenders with mustard in a large bowl until coated, then dredge, 2 at a time, in cracker crumbs until evenly coated.

Arrange tenders in 1 layer, without crowding, in oiled pan.

Bake, turning over once, until golden brown, about 15 minutes total.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a 5- to 6-quart heavy pot over moderate heat, then cook spinach, covered, turning with tongs, until spinach is just wilted, about 2 minutes.

Stir in salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, then serve spinach with chicken.
