  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. In a small bowl combine cheese and seasoning. Roll chicken pieces in cheese mixture to coat lightly. Set remaining cheese mixture aside. Arrange coated chicken pieces in an 20x20cm or similar sized baking dish.
  3. In a small saucepan, saute spring onion in butter until tender. Stir in flour, then add milk all at once. Simmer, stirring, until bubbly. Stir in drained spinach and red pepper and mix together. Spoon spinach mixture over chicken and sprinkle with remaining cheese mixture. Bake uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes or until tender and chicken juices run clear.


If pimentos are available, use these instead of red pepper.
