I'm not one who usually makes a spinach stuffed anything, but this recipe kind of intrigued me, (& I was sure my other half would really like it) so . . . Sure enough, this turned out to be A VERY TASTY CHICKEN DISH! The only change I made was to use lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P! Very nice recipe & a keeper, too!
