Oh, YUM!! This is SO good! I cut this to 4 and it came out perfectly! I omitted the oil, and used the butter to saute the chicken. I used 2 TBS curry, it was just right. The spinach is delicious! This goes into my keepers file! Thanks suzyq, you got a winner here!
This is an excellent recipe. I followed the ingredient list, but lightened it a bit using the low fat soup, reduced fat mayonnaise and reduced fat sour cream. I also halved this recipe, except for the curry - used 3 tablespoons. This wonderful sauce paired nicely with the rice, too. Perfectly delicious! Thank you SuzieQue.
i used 8 boneless half breasts and two 9x13 dishes, but i doubled everything else! silly me, i thought i would get two dinners out of it. our sons loved it so much (even ate the spinach) that we had just half a dish left. we even used the extra sauce around the edges to mix with noodles for a later lunch. the flavor is so delectable! our home smelled wonderfully like curried chicken for a couple of blissful days, too. i used a total of 4 tablespoons of curry and used sharp tillamook cheddar. because of the caloric/fat content that is listed, we won't have this often, but we will definitely enjoy it when we do. thanks!
