Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1-1/2 pounds)

  • 1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, trimmed

"What a lovely recipe! Made it exactly per recipe the first time. The second time I tossed in some minced garlic and sliced baby bella mushrooms. Wow! And, since we are a sauce loving household, I doubled the amount for that. This is a keeper! Served with a a side of garlic mashed potatoes, spinach salad (cranberries, red onion, cucumber with TessaMae's Honey Poppyseed dressing, and a buttery Chardonnay."

"This was so good!!!! Made as directed except I used a medium white onion instead of shallots (couldn't find in the grocery store) and fresh garlic minced (a heaping soup spoon). Used chicken broth and a bit more seasoning than amount directed. Loved it!!! The thighs are so tender!!!"

"This is the FIRST recipe I made from Taste of Home. My sister and I are HUGE fans of boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Unfortunately, I didn't have any shallots, so I used a small red onion. Instead of cooking six chicken thighs, I cooked eight for leftovers. I served the chicken thighs and spinach with some rice, to stretch the meal out. I will definitely make this recipe again!!!"

"This was quick, easy and delicious! I too used onion instead of shallots as had none on hand. Will be making this regularly! Thanks for the great recipe."

"I made this as written, and it was fabulous, and I will make again. Everything came together quickly; the hardest part was clean-up b/c I don't have a nonstick pan.

Next time, I'll add sliced fresh button mushrooms (8 oz) and a clove or two of minced fresh garlic. I agree with other reviewers who suggest increasing the spinach and doubling the sauce; I'll do that next time, too. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!! My kitchen smells heavenly, thanks to this dish!"

"I made this as written except bone in thighs were on sale and I used the chicken broth. (I planned to use wine until I realized someone drank the bottle I intended to use. It happens a lot around here lol). I doubled the spinach sauce on the recommendation of my sister who made it first It was delicious! Even the young one enjoyed it. Definitely putting this in the rotation. I also grated some nutmeg on the leftovers and that was good too! Thanks for the great, low carb, meal!"
