This was very good! I used diced Canadian Bacon which gave it a nice smoky flavor. The next time I make it I might just sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top rather than coating the chicken because the coating just got soggy once the spinach topping went on. I also expected more sauce so I might play with the amount of milk. But overall this was good enough for my husband to eat it as leftovers without a fuss so it's a keeper!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe, but weren't able to convince my son to try it. ;-D He doesn't know what he was missing! Very easy to prepare, delicious, and good for us! Thanks, Cindy!
