    The chicken was good, but I didnt really care for the garlic spinach. I`ll make the chicken again for sure.

    Very tasty for such a simple recipe. Not much too it. I didn't change anything - except that I forgot to take chicken out so used Jane's chicken strips instead. I paired this with another recipe from this site - Ranch Mashed potatos (potatoes and cauliflower mashed together with ranch sauce). another healthy item. Delicious! Will make again
