Creamy Spinach Chicken Dinner

Cleanup is a breeze with this all-in-one supper. To make things even easier, tear the spinach with your hands instead of cutting it. -Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

    Very good recipe for a quick, weeknight meal. I followed the directions exactly except for using Cream of Celery soup instead of Cream of Mushroom. It was very rich, and I think I will substitute half-and-half for the whipping cream next time.

    Wondering if I could use 2 (10 ounce each) pkgs. frozen chopped spinach (well drained) instead of fresh. Thank you for your reply!

    This is a delicious meal. The first time I made it I followed recipe exactly and loved it this time I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I used cream of celery and I like it a lot better with that.. It is extra yummy.... OH actually I didn't follow it exactly the first time I used1% milk instead of heaving whipping cream and I used that this time too... Don't want any extra calories and the milk was just fine to make it yummy!

    Loved it! My whole family liked it, but we eat a lot of meals with spinach. I used 2% milk to cut down on calories.

    Considering my family does not eat spinach, onions or cream of mushroom soup, this was an easy dish. I used cream of celery, left out the spinach and onion and it was still very tasty. Added a bit of milk to thin the sauce and used 1 1/2 cup mozzie cheese.

    I even added steamed asparagus and sauted mushroom. i also added 2 cloves of garlic with the onion for more flavor.
