    When I made this chicken dish, for my low-sodium diet I omitted the bacon and basted the chicken breast with fat-free, low-sodium poppyseed salad dressing, used no-salt-added diced tomatoes, and no added salt. Cooked it on 60% power in my microwave, and served on brown rice. Delicious and healthy! - 12/22/08

    I actually used a can of diced tomatoes that had onions and green peppers and a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil already mixed together. I did not add any garlic powder or onion powder. I thought it made the chicken taste great. I would make this again. - 5/12/09

    I keep a jar of Hormel real bacon bits just to use when I want the flavor of the bacon but not the calories. You can find it in the grocery store in the aisle with the salad dressings. - 5/9/10

    I'd make this again, but I would add some thick slices of red onion and maybe double the spinach and tomatoes. It was easy to make so I will also probably tweak it was some spices, e.g., basil, until I perfect it to my taste. - 5/10/10

    I seasoned the chicken (salt, pepper, low sodium soy sauce) which prevented it from being bland, and I used the entire package of frozen spinach + water chesnuts and Great Northern Beans. SO TASTY, but next time I'll cook the chicken on the stove a little before baking the dish, to reduce bake time. - 10/24/08

    Sounds good, but will modify for just one - Using a whole pkg. of spinach, 2 chicken tenders, and brown rice. I will eliminate the bacon - can't see buying it for one slice - with the right seasoning it won't need it for flavor. - 9/17/08

    I made this tonight, it tasted awesome and was EASY to make! I wish I would have added more spinach. I used brown rice (I'm no good at making rice) and it was nice and filling. More specific measurments would have helped me ie: what size bag of spinach, and can of tomatoes. The chicken stayed moist! - 12/4/07

  • Great!! Left off the bacon, doubled the spinach, I used fresh (still could use more since it cooks down so much). After reading reviews, decided to cut chicken in bites sizes after cooking.

  • This was a somewhat frustrating dish. I admit, I had large chicken breast halves, but it took almost an hour to cook. I added many spices and the FF italian dressing, yet it was still bland.
