    I add a 1/2 cup of pitted and sliced black olives at the same time I add the tomatoes (which I actually use cherry/grape tomatoes).

    This is a wonderful dish! I would consider it the greek version of Chicken Cordon Bleu. The only thing I would change is to pump up the sauce a bit more. The chicken bouillon cube and water is more of a flavoring agent of the spinach and tomatoes and is kind of thin. I would add a little flour and make this a proper sauce (roux). I made this vegan as Recipe #504389 for ZWT 9 Soup - A - Stars!!!
