Good recipe, however I did "jazz" it up a bit, used four chicken breasts, diced, cooked two diced onions with the diced red bell pepper until the onions were browned, tossed the chicken with some flour/salt/pepper/thyme, then cooked in the pan, added the onion/peppers, added the mushrooms, then a large can of diced tomatoes, a bit of white wine and tons of spinach at the very end .

Made a cream sauce using: butter/with two cloves of garlic, then added some flour to make a rue, then added chicken stock, then added non fat half and half, cooked a bit, then added thyme, salt/pepper, cooked until it was thick and then added about a cup or parmesan cheese.

Made this recipe as is. It was okay but we found it kind of bland. Added extra cheese, garlic, peppers and onions. It was good, but needs additional seasoning to really make it great.

I wish I had of read the reviews before making this. I would probably add what other reviewers had suggested or added sundried tomatoes, more garlic or a prepared pesto to it for a punch of flavor. I'll be making this again but will make additions to it next time. It was overall a good, filling dish that made tons. I had some the next two days for lunch and it was even better after the flavors had blended. Love the way it was quick to make too.
