"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!!!!!!"
