"My family loved this dish. I followed the recipe only doubled it for my family. It was delicious. Served with mashed potatoes and salad. It was easy and fast. Thank you for sharing!"

"Terrific! Even my picky husband liked this one, will make it again. The only problem I had was the sauce was thin. Next time, I may start with a beurre manie to thicken it. Other than that - loved it!"

"Not sure why this was so special. All the ingredients are simple and usually on hand. But this tasted outstanding. Next time, however, I'll double the amount of spinach -- it was that good. Served with plain pasta which rounded the meal out perfectly."

"This has a very good flavor. I really liked it and will make again!

I broiled the chicken in the oven and then put it on top of the shallot spinach mixture."

"This sounds delicious, and easy to make. Most of us usually have these ingredients on hand, so it's a tasty & easy meal to make on a busy day. I like the use of fresh spinach, since I always buy a huge bag, and I then worry about how to use it up before it goes bad. I have some thighs thawing out in the fridge, so I plan to make this tomorrow."

"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."
