Chicken breasts stay nice and moist tucked under a blanket of melted cheese. It's extra special to serve but is not tricky to make. —Katrina Wagner, Grain Valley, Missouri

"Excellent! I've made it twice. I used Montreal Cicken seasoning on the chicken. Definitely a keeper!"

MY REVIEW

"Have made this recipe several times. Added some garlic to the spinach and mushrooms like one other reader suggested. Made it for a large group and it was a hit. For the large group I marinated the chicken, then grilled it in batches, covered it and kept it warm in the oven. Before serving I put the cheese on and then the mushroom spinach which I kept warm in a crock pot. It was a real hit. A real keeper."

"Very Good quick and easy to make. Just didn't have quite that "wow" to give it 5 starts."

"This was awesome!! I used Weber kickin chicken for the seasoning, lots of flavor. Followed the directions otherwise. My husband went back for seconds and asked that I make it again! Thanks!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 21, 2015

"I loved the concept and it was, in fact, easy to make. However, I did think it was lacking a "wow" factor. I made as written, and probably should have zazzed it up with extra spices. Overall though, it's a solid and simple recipe that I would make again."
