MY REVIEW

The flavor on this was disgusting. I had to throw mine out.

I have not seen garlic herb mayonnaise in stores. I think I could season my own mixture suitably but wondered where ready made was available and who makes it?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2012

Overall, I enjoyed the dish and the coating was strong enough to give it a nice kick of tomato flavor. Unfortunately, it didn?t add anything to the spinach-cheese mixture and I got bored while I was eating it. If I were to make it again, I probably would add something to the spinach like garlic, basil, salt and/or pepper to give it a little punch of taste. Also I'd sprinkle a little shredded Parmesan on top.

OK...had to make my own garlic-herbed mayo because I couldn't find it in the store. I mixed mayo with garlic powder and Italian seasonings. I made it exactly like they said other than that. My husband, my biggest critic, loved it! I decided to save this in my "recipe box" to make again! Chicken was SO TENDER! Oh, I also used shredded cheese instead of the slices. (I never use slices and would probably use the shredded again...like on homemade pizza!) Great dinner!
