"I made it as written except I used Herbes de Provence instead of Rosemary b/c I was out of rosemary. This was great. My kids loved the chicken and my DH and I loved the whole meal. This would be easy to swap out different vegetables based on what you had."

"So good! Love the spinach, and the versatility of this recipe. Perfect as is, or can add or switch out veggie options depending on what you have on hand. Carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, many options! Easy prep, easy clean up too!"

"Made this last night and it was terrific! I did not have potatoes but added baby carrots and accompanied with rice. I used poultry seasoning in place of rosemary, doubled the garlic and the paprika. Will make this again and try other veggies like Brussels sprouts and kale."

"This was excellent! Loved the flavor! I didn't change a thing, roasted for 40 minutes, a few more minutes after adding spinach. Everything was perfect, the chicken very moist. Along with a roasted acorn squash made an excellent meal!"
