after the oven is preheated combine the mixture in the mixing bowl with the chicken and place the chicken in the oven until the meat is tender and no pink is showing. it usually takes 23-30 minutes to fully cook the chicken.

begin to place the fresh spinach onto the desired size dishes that are being used to serve the meal.
take the chicken and place accordingly on the plate.

and be sure to add some more Parmesan cheese and also the cashews and enjoy!

Notes

it is best to always stick to the order of the instructions due to so much that is going into this particular dish. and remember timing is literally everything when preparing this dish.
and you can always add the tofu if desired but considering the fact that there is actual meat in this dish it is optional but it actually brings out more of the classy side of eating a really delicious healthy meal so i would definitely consider adding after making the dish a couple of times and make sure that you get the honest approval from those of whom you are preparing this dish for before adding the tofu because not everyone will want it so if there is a mixed opinion make it in a separate dish and anyone that does want to add it in can do so according to their desired experience.
