Fabulous! I forgot the cayenne though and added mushrooms on top of the spinach under the chicken. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

This is wonderful, decadent and wonderful. I put it together in the morning and stored it covered in the fridge until dinner time. I only used 1 tsp of the mustard as DH isn't terribly fond the flavor! I'm working on him. The spinach gave it a great earthy flavor. I plan on making this when the kids come to visit so I can spend time with them and not alone in the kitchen. Thanks.

This was delicious. I used broccoli instead of spinach and the dish was sooo good. I will definitely be doing this again soon.
