How do I make it ?
Heat 1 Tbsp. of the dressing in large ovenproof skillet on medium heat. Add spinach; cook and stir 1 min. or just until spinach is wilted. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
Add remaining 2 Tbsp. dressing and the chicken to skillet; turn chicken over to evenly coat both sides with dressing. Cook 5 to 6 min. on each side or until chicken is cooked through (170°F).
Top evenly with ham and cheese; cover. Reduce heat to low; cook 1 to 2 min. or until cheese is melted. Or, place under a broiler to brown. Spoon spinach mixture evenly onto four plates; top each with a chicken breast.
