This is an awesome dish! I did make some adjustments, suggested by other reviewers on allrecipes.com. I left out the mushrooms (not a fan). I sauteed fresh spinach (two bags) with olive oil and minced garlic. I cooked some bacon in the same pan, then sauteed the chicken breasts in the same pan (after removing most of the bacon grease). I added chopped dried onion to the sauce and used skim milk instead of 1/2 & 1/2. I also put a little part-skim mozzarella in with the cream sauce, as well as on top. I baked (uncovered) at 375 for about 30 minutes. Delicious!

This was SOOOO good! We loved the garlic flavor and the mix of the spinach and mushrooms with the chicken- heavenly! I didn't have any parmesan cheese, so I ended up leaving it out of the sauce and it was still good without. I used fresh baby spinach like another reviewer said they did and it worked perfectly- just remember to put more in that you think you need because it will cook down a ton- I used half of a bag and felt like I could have used more! Overall, this was a really great, easy recipe! DH loved it and was talking about "when we have it again" before dinner was over! Thanks for sharing, Bev!
