Reviews for Spinach and Mushroom Smothered Chicken
"We love this delicious, yet so easy to make chicken recipe! I have grilled, broiled and browned the chicken in a skillet and it is good done all three ways. This is also a wonderful dish to make for company, which I have done."
"delicious! I did not use the green onion, only because I didn't have any on hand... but it was amazing! I used Montreal Chicken seasoning, mozzarella, and pan saut?ed the chicken. I will be making again!"
"Excellent and easy. I've used almonds instead of pecans also which is wonderful too. I also use a full 8oz of fresh mushrooms and at least 3 cups of spinach and this is for two chicken breasts. I too have added garlic also. All ways have been wonderful!"
"Excellent! I've made it twice. I used Montreal Cicken seasoning on the chicken. Definitely a keeper!"
"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."
