  2. Pour half the olive oil into a very large frying pan to film the bottom.

  3. Over low heat, gradually add the spinach by handfuls, cover, and stir from time to time as it cooks down.

  4. When all the spinach is barely wilted, put it in a sieve and press out most of the moisture.

  5. Spread the spinach in a wide, shallow ovenproof dish and set aside.

  6. Salt and pepper the chicken cutlets on both sides.

  7. Add the remaining oil to the pan and over medium-high heat saute the chicken, turning to color it golden on both sides.

  8. When the chicken is done, lay the cutlets on the spinach.

  9. In a small bowl, mix together the pine nuts and blue cheese.

  10. Scatter this mixture over the chicken (This much can be done ahead).

  11. Bake the chicken until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the chicken and spinach are piping hot, about 15 minutes.

  12. Serve at once. ?
