"I've made this several times. I used the frozen spinach thawed and added sun dried tomatoes to the spinach and sauté as usual. Great every time!"

"This is a quick and easy last minute meal. I saute onions, mushrooms together then add the spinach. I use swiss cheese over the chicken breast and place the spinach mixture over that. Very Good!!!!!!"

"I have made this recipe over and over again we love it. We use pepper jack cheese instead and while the chicken is on the stove cooking, we cut 1- serrano pepper and remove it when it goes to the oven. Wonderful!!"
