I’ve made this twice in 2 weeks because it is delicious! First time I followed the recipe exactly. I second go round I doubled the spinach and sauce and used chicken broth in place of wine and Vidalia onion rather than shallots to use what I had on hand - equally yummy!

Very good recipe!! I use bone-in thighs because that is what I usually buy. I also double the spinach sauce- it is sooo good!! Joyce Moynihan, Volunteer Field Editor.

If you like spinach and chicken this is a great recipe to try! I made it exactly as printed but used regular sour cream instead of low fat. I would prefer a slightly thicker sauce so I might try adding some low fat cream cheese tthe next time I make it. I give this 4 stars (because of the sauce) and will definitely make it again.

Was a very good meal! Made this tonight. I already had the bone in thighs, so I used them. It just took longer to cook them thoroughly. But I continued preparing the creamed Spinach as directed (just doubling the amounts). I served it with rice pilaf and it was very good. It made for two meals for me and my husband!

My husband loved the chicken. I wish I would doubled the spinach mixture as other readers have commented. A different, tasty dish for us.

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.
