      This was so delicious! What a great use of the chive and onion cream cheese. My husband said it was five stars. I agree with TheBabblingHousewife that this could use a little more moisture. This dish was so yummy that I'm going to make it for a friend on Friday when she comes home from the hospital. But, I will add marinara or sour cream and garlic salt. I did not drain my diced tomatoes. I also seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper before cooking it. I also mixed the cheese in with the pasta as well as topped it after 30 minutes with more cheese. It only stayed in the oven for about 3 minutes the second time in. Yum yum. Thanks!

      Very good! As mentioned in the previous reviews, the mixture was pretty dry so I added about a 3/4 cup of Greek yogurt. I also just had regular cream cheese, so I added a large amount of chopped fresh chives (the best part of the dish, i thought). Because I used low-fat cheeses and doubled the amount of spinach, I had to add several teaspoons of adobo seasoning for flavor. It turned out perfectly, and next time I'd love to try this with tuna instead of chicken.
