What a nice quick little dinner. I did add some onion to these, and as for the chicken I pan fryed it. I just used a small bit of chives. Made for a great dinner, and loved the simplicity of these. Served with some chesse fries,for a great meal. made for PRMR Tag.
Appetizing dish that is easily transformed from a meat roll into a grilled sandwich thus eliminating heating the house during the hot months. What I did was to grill the chicken breast and some nice thick sliced whole grain bread. I guessed at the amount of chives used (listed in description and directions but not in the ingredients) when making the cream cheese mixture which I spread onto the grilled bread, added the olives and then spinach. Next I topped with the chicken and sprinkled with the parmesan cheese. Very quick and easy lunch or dinner for a 100+ day, thanks for the post.
