You can add the spinach leaves (chopped) to the cheese mixture, instead of placing it in the pockets separately if you wish to. The reason I keep them separate is so that I can use some of cream cheese mixture to spread on top of the chicken, without any spinach in it. If you add the spinach to the cream cheese mixture, then you could also use thawed, drained frozen spinach.
