  • This dish is very good! Even my husband liked the spinach. We will definitely have this again. - 4/5/08

  • This was very good. I would simmer the chicken longer before beginning the spinach part to make the chicken more tender. Or to speed things up, cut the chicken in to small pieces. - 3/8/08

  • This was really good!! The spinach turned out awesome. I couldn't get the liquid to evaporate as much as I would have liked, but it was still very flavorful. I highly recommend using freshly grated nutmeg. Makes a huge difference. - 2/7/08

  • I loved the flavor of the spinach. If you eat the chicken without the spinach it was bland, but with the spinach - excellent. I loved it, but my entire family didn't care for it. - 2/7/08
