I love using feta cheese in this easy recipe, which is simple enough for a weeknight recipe yet elegant enough to serve guests. The amount of spinach is not critical, I get the ready-to-eat packages and use canned broth. The chicken is moist and the feta sauce is like a gravy, just spoon it over the chicken and spinach.

This recipe was pretty good, but the directions were a little confusing for me. I will probably add mushrooms if I make it again.

This was a great recipe. Quick and very tasty. I wish I had doubled it. Thanks for the recipe!

This was tasty, relatively quick and a hit with the kids. I made this during the spinach/e.coli scare, so there was not a lick of spinach to be found, not even frozen... so I subbed in steamed broccoli. As well, although I started off with extra broth, there didn't seem to be enough sauce so I added about 3/4 white wine and some fresh chopped parsley. I think the feta was integral to how good the dish turned out, but YMMV. I served it over steamed basmati rice.
