Though I am not usually a fan of creamy rich sauces for pasta, this one sounded so good I just had to try it. It was more than good, it was to die for. The only thing I changed was the pasta, angelhair is too "wimpy" for me, so I used thin linguini. Served this with a salad and garlic toast for a memorable dinner. Thanks, Cher... this one is going into the "special dinners" file. :o)

What a delicious way to feed my family spinach! I doubled the cream, used frozen chopped spinach, and squeezed in some fresh basil from a tube. Yummy.

We had this for supper tonight and it was great. I did make a few changes. I added 4 cups of spinach, a small package of sliced mushroom, 1/2 white wine and 1/2 cup madeira wine. I thought it turned out fabulous. Thanks for posting!

Very good and a very pretty dish. I used a lot more spinach (11 oz.). Perhaps because I used so much spinach, the resulting sauce was thinner than I wanted, so I pushed the wilted spinach to one side in the pan & used some corn starch to thicken it; flour should work also. As I write this, I'm thinking some sliced mushrooms might be really good cooked with the spinach in that white sauce.

I only marinated the chicken for 1 hour. Instead of finishing cooking the chicken in the oven, I put it back in the pan after the spinach wilted, there was plenty of liquid to submerge the chicken. I served it over rice because that's what we were in the mood for. Sauce was more like a soup then rich and creamy.

Never thought my husband would even try this dish. But boy was I wrong. He enjoyed this dish so much. Thanks for posting.

Wonderful! The only thing I will change next time is to use more fresh spinach. One cup is not nearly enough, should be 4 cups. I marinated the breasts for only 7 hours, but it was very tasty and the marinade was a perfect blend of just the right amount of spices in the oil. The whole house smelled great!

Cher, this was delicious!!! The only changes I made was I slightly pounded the thicker parts of the chicken and I added salt to the marinade. I LOVE spinach, and the sauce and the spinach were perfect with the chicken! On top of the pasta (I use Westbrae Angel Hair Pasta for gluten-free) it looked scrumptious! If I knew how to post a picture, I would have. :)
