"I made this as written except bone in thighs were on sale and I used the chicken broth. (I planned to use wine until I realized someone drank the bottle I intended to use. It happens a lot around here lol). I doubled the spinach sauce on the recommendation of my sister who made it first It was delicious! Even the young one enjoyed it. Definitely putting this in the rotation. I also grated some nutmeg on the leftovers and that was good too! Thanks for the great, low carb, meal!"

"Fast and fabulous. We loved the spinach and sauce and I'm making it again with a different meat. It will be one of most used side dishes."

"I made this for my husband he loved it. I always season chicken with bottled rotisserie seasoning, in addition to salt & pepper. I used frozen spinach and added a pinch of red pepper flakes to it. Its a keeper."

"Made as written except substituted onion for shallots. It was truly quick and easy, and delicious to boot."

"OMG I made these last night and they were delicious. I added additional spices to chicken and I would probably double or triple the spinach next time as I wanted more of that and it really shrinks after it's cooked. Amazing recipe."
