    Annacia's Note:

    I have to say that I tried this with a bit of trepidation and was most pleasantly surprised! This is really excellent. I served it with unadorned brown rice and a simple green salad. Be sure to give it the full cooking to to allow the flavors to come together. I have company coming in a couple of weeks and this is going to be on the table fro them.

      I only used 3 chicken breasts but kept all the other ingredients at the same level though may have used less spinach (about 3 cups) but would cut the dried thyme back by half (it was just a little too strong but I should have realized that - it is lemon thyme I have dried myself and is rather potent compared to the commercial). I did just add about 1/4 cup of water to the sauce as it seemed to be drying out to much in step 4. A lovely flavoural dinner enjoyed by all (served with Caramelised Carrots and Good Old-Fashioned Mashed Potato by **Jubes** as sides), thank you Annacia, made for 123 Hit Wonders.

      Really loved this unusual dish! I used only 2 chicken breasts but made all of the sauce and spinach. The taste was delicious but the texture of the canned pears was a little odd - I think it would be awesome with fresh pears as well. Thanks for posting this recipe!
