Thrilling Thursday & Easy Chicken Florentine

Well my ultrasound came back fine. They found fluid around my right ovary indicating I had recently ovulated or a cyst had finally burst. I'm thinking the later since I'm on birth control, but with dr. you never know. My aunt also recommended I ask my dr. about endometriosis? WebMD makes me think I'm dying, so I will wait for a professional opinion.
I woke up yesterday with little red spots on my tongue and by lunch my throat was super sore. Mr. P suggested tonsilitis, I called my regular dr. I was able to get in and surprise! I have strep throat. I'm typing this at work....hmmm. I'm a dedicated employee, does it show? (I called and told my boss, he told me to come in) Thanks guys.
I did manage to make dinner last night and it turned out great. It was easy and perfect for me since I wasn't ready for too involved of a recipe. I found this show Pantry Raid on netflix and his recipes seem super simple. It was on the style network for one season in 2007 and then was canceled. The Take Home Chef with Curtis Stone was better, but this other show was for the "normal" cook. No weird ingredients and most everything is on hand. Anways, here's the recipe:

4 chicken breasts
1 cup flour
4 tablespoons spinach dip
1 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon butter

Pound chicken into thin pieces and season with salt. Lightly dredge each breast in flour. Add oil to preheated oven-safe skillet large enough for all four chicken breasts. When the oil is hot, add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on one side. Flip chicken breasts and carefully spoon spinach dip on top of each piece. Sprinkle cheese on top of the spinach dip, add butter to the pan, and bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

I served with steamed mixed veggies and mozzarella sticks. There's a recipe for mozzarella sticks that he makes from string cheese. When I try those I will post the recipe :)
