Great for entertaining

We've made over a member-submitted recipe and cut the amount of salt in half.

Instead of frozen spinach, we use fresh--though the recipe works just fine with one cup of frozen. (Be sure to thaw it and squeeze it dry before sauteing.)

Instead of a mayonnaise-based sauce, we lowered the fat and sodium by creating an easy cheese sauce.

Serve the chicken with brown rice and a side salad.
