I made this Lemon Spinach Chicken for dinner the other night and it was out of this world! I may have licked the plate clean it was so good! I made it and put it over pasta but the next time I'm going to serve it with mashed potatoes. The chicken has a nice flavor paired with the creamy sauce with a hint of lemon. Delish!

  3. super yummy I made it today for dinner over mashed potatoes and yes I was about to lick my plate clean. thank you for sharing

  4. I keep seeing recipes that look delicious but then I come to the dreaded “spinach” part. My husband and I both detest spinach in any form. So what do we substitute for it? Don’t like kale either. Can you help because this looks really good?!

  5. Hi – can you confirm that 3 tablespoons of garlic is correct – seems a bit much.


  6. Thank you for the recipe. I fully intended to make it as written. I made sure to pick up a lemon on my way home from work. I thought I was all set, turns out that I didn’t have parmesan cheese! Not willing to give up, or to go back to the store, I used feta cheese crumbles instead. Dinner was a hit! I still can’t wait to try it with the parmesan. Thanks

      1. As another person mentioned…I DO lick my plate clean! It is the only dish I have ever likened to eating candy! Iโ€™m going to make it for my South Carolina kids this week!
