This was good but a bit bland. Next time I’ll spice it up a bit more. I love spinach and mushrooms and enjoyed this with the Provolone on top.

I prepared this recipe a bit differently. Used all of the ingredients except that I prepared it as a casserole. Chopped up all of the poached chicken. Made a gravy from the broth . Started with a layer of buttered noodles , then veggie mixture, cut up chicken and finally the cheese. Offered extra gravy on the side. Excellent. VFE- Everyone lived this recipe.

Pretty bland the first night, but better the 2nd night. I sauted the breasts (split down the center lengthwise) so didn't get any charring from grill or broiler. I'll try broiler to finish them next time.

Not what I would normally call a "smothered" dish but definitely a good sauce over a cheese topped chicken breast. Very nice

Excellent recipe; easy to make. I added some minced garlic and vermouth to the spinach mixture. I cut chicken breasts into quarters, brushed them with oil, sprinkled on the seasoning, and broiled them in my convection toaster oven. I served mashed turnips as a side dish. Definitely a keeper!!!!
