    Just made this and it is very good. And to those saying it is not low-carb --- dishes CAN BE both low-carb AND low-fat. This one is both. The South Beach Diet stresses BOTH low-fat AND low-carb and the weight falls off! :) - 3/1/13

  • I made this for dinner today and it yummy! I made a few changes because I didnt have everything on hand. 4 tbsp mayo, sour cream and 3 tbsp cottage cheese, 2 oz of chedder drizzle of olive oil, 4 cloves of smashed minced garlic and salt and pepper to taste. 2 chicken thighs seasoned and cooked. - 10/7/14

  • I followed the recipe to the letter; it made enough for 3 meals. Even though it tasted good it was missing something; so I added some rice one night and quinoa the next. This reminds me of a greek dish call Spanokopita, without the phyllo dough. More spinach is needed not enough to fill me up. - 11/11/13

    It is not low carb because, in low carb cooking you always, without exception, use full fat ingredients. That is the whole point of low carb. I made it with full fat sour cream, it's low carb and delicious, thanks - 2/11/13

  • Great recipe! I cut the recipe in half and added a tablespoon of olive oil on top after baking, and broiled for two minutes, to brown slightly. - 2/10/13

  • Cooking as we speak - it smells delicious! I used the olive oil and minced garlic to saute the chicken in. I was looking for a recipe that included all of the above ingredients, (basically a low carb version of a Greek chicken dish). I'm confused as to why one poster said this is not low carb? - 8/10/12

  • This was really good. I didn't have greek yogurt so I substituted light sour cream. I also substituted fresh Mozzerralla and used 2 cloves of garlic. I Used the olive oil to grease my baking dish. I used fresh baby spinach 6 ounce. Was watery but drained a little then mix. so creamy and yummy - 3/28/12
