Reviews for Rosemary Chicken with Spinach & Beans
"One of our favorite dishes--delicious and healthy! I cook mine in a large cast-iron skillet and it comes out perfect every time. We like to serve it with a generous sprinkling of freshly grate parmesan."
"Pretty good! I liked the combination of the beans, spinach and stewed tomatoes. Surprisingly tasty. The time given to saut? the chicken is way too long. You only need 2-3 minutes per side if the cutlets are 1/4 inch thick. I will make this again but probably make some modifications. Great dish for summer - lo-cal, nutritious, and satisfying."
"This is just delicious. I used a lot more garlic, but that's the only change I made. Definitely a keeper. I have a question, though: Why is it, when I try to pin this recipe, does it only pin the photo? I always have to Google it because the pin won't work."
"Really liked this recipe. Since I have a family member that cannot have sodium, I did use canned tomatoes with no salt added and the same for white beans. I also substituted the half tsp of salt with a salt substitute. Good recipe and very versatile."
"Simple & delicious."
"Loved the rosemary flavor and the simplicity of the recipe! Have made this more than once already."
"Delicious, easy to prepare and very healthy! I did increase the amount of garlic."
