Spinach and Colby Jack Stuffed Chicken Roll-Ups

Eh...that's really all I have to say about this chicken.  I thought it was going to be so tasty and wonderful, but it was just eh.
Serves 4 - 1 piece of chicken = 1 red, 0.25 green and 0.5 blue

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup of fresh baby spinach
1/2 cup of shredded colby jack (or cheddar) cheese
Freshly cracked black pepper
Garlic powder
Onion powder

Preheat your oven to 350 F.

Place your chicken in a plastic ziplock bag or between two pieces of saran wrap. On a cutting board using a the flat side of a meat mallet pound your chicken breast until it is a thin, even thickness. Season the side facing up with freshly ground black pepper.

Place the baby spinach and colby jack (or cheddar) cheese on top of the chicken close to one end. Roll up the chicken and secure with as many toothpicks as needed to keep the chicken rolled.

Season the top of the chicken with more freshly ground black pepper and a large pinch of garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Rub the seasonings in so they really stick.

Bake for 20 minutes at 350 F. After 20 minutes turn the broiler on high and broil for an additional 3-5 minutes until the top of the chicken becomes golden and crispy.
