Reviews for Italian Spinach and Chicken Skillet
"This is very easy to put together especially if you have pre-cooked chicken to use. Whole family likes it and love that it has vegetables included. I am working on losing weight and this recipe fits within my plan. It was a favorite of mine before, and even more now that I see the nutritional benefits as well."
"Very easy and very good. Lots of flavor."
"This is really yummy. I used canned chic and it was still really good."
"Verry good!! I didn't have cream of mushroom so I used cream of chicken. My boys who really don't care for vegetables had seconds on this dish!! I served it with homemade garlic bread on sourdough English muffins topped with butter, garlic salt, and shredded cheese. I try to count my calories during the day and 1 1/2 cup serving is very generous serving and fulfilling :) definitely will make again"
"This sounded great, but it was just okay. It didn't have as much flavor as I was expecting."
"Easy and delicious pasta recipe."
"This is the ultimate comfort dish! The wheat noodles lend a hearty flavor, and the other seasonings are wonderfully savory. When I was preparing food for after my baby's delivery, I made up the sauce portion of this dish and froze it in a Rubbermaid container for later. When I thawed it two weeks later and added the freshly cooked noodles, it was just as good. The only change I have made to this recipe is to add about half the amount of spinach called for. Ten ounces of the stuff tends to overwhelm the dish."
"My family loved it! Will definately make again!"
"I didn't have cream of chicken soup on hand so I substituted cream of mushroom. Also, I used fire roasted diced tomatoes. Regardless of these changes my husband, 3-year-old and 1-year-old boys absolutely LOVED it. This recipe is a definite keeper!"
