    Ilysse's Note:

    There is an Italian recipe I love, made with Lamb, that uses egg this way. I love it and have been wanted to try it with other things. When I saw the list of ingredients for this contest this was the first idea that came to mind. I cooked it for someone, who I thought would hate it, and he LOVED it. Serve with pasta, risotto (my choice), or polenta. As you can tell from the name, my creativity stays in the kitchen.

      This is a very good way to prepare the chicken. The spinach and egg/lemon make a lovely sauce. My only criticism is that it lacks 'oomph' -- it needs more than just salt and pepper but something more. After tasting, I added some kalamata olives. Next time, I will add some cumin as well.
