Reviews for Creamy Spinach Chicken Dinner
"Very good recipe for a quick, weeknight meal. I followed the directions exactly except for using Cream of Celery soup instead of Cream of Mushroom. It was very rich, and I think I will substitute half-and-half for the whipping cream next time."
"Wondering if I could use 2 (10 ounce each) pkgs. frozen chopped spinach (well drained) instead of fresh. Thank you for your reply!"
"This is a delicious meal. The first time I made it I followed recipe exactly and loved it this time I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I used cream of celery and I like it a lot better with that.. It is extra yummy.... OH actually I didn't follow it exactly the first time I used1% milk instead of heaving whipping cream and I used that this time too... Don't want any extra calories and the milk was just fine to make it yummy!"
"This was delicious! I added a clove of fresh garlic and sun-dried tomatoes. Will definitely make again!"
"it was realy good but we cut down on the sp"
"Loved it! My whole family liked it, but we eat a lot of meals with spinach. I used 2% milk to cut down on calories."
"Considering my family does not eat spinach, onions or cream of mushroom soup, this was an easy dish. I used cream of celery, left out the spinach and onion and it was still very tasty. Added a bit of milk to thin the sauce and used 1 1/2 cup mozzie cheese."
"I even added steamed asparagus and sauted mushroom. i also added 2 cloves of garlic with the onion for more flavor."
"A family favorite!"
"This was a great recipe! I used rotisserie ckn and added a bag of sliced mushroom. It was very tasty :)"
