Spinach Chicken Parmesan

"I adopted this recipe from Recipezzar. It used to be called just Chicken Parmesan, but most other dishes with that name on here are tomato based and I wanted to make clear that this one isn't. I have also changed the amounts of some of the ingredients as I felt they just weren't quite balanced. This can easily be doubled ."

    Its great - Cheesy but with subtle spinach undertones. We made it twice. Some things I would do differently: Halve the amount of Nutmeg. Reserve Half of the milk/spinach topping to mix with pasta served with this dish. Great recipe! Thanks for posting!

    I made one serving of this last night for my dinner, using thinly sliced boneless skinless chicken breast and soy parmesan cheese. I didn't add the nutmeg, as I chickened out and ommitted the margarine, using just a little Pam in the skillet. I know the soy parm. took a little flavor away, but all in all, this was simply devine! I can't rave enough over it! I've already printed out 2 copies of it for my aunts who love spinach as much as I do. The chicken came out so tender and juicy and the sauce tasted simply sinful! I wish I could give more stars for sure! And, just as a note, no one forget those pimientos, as they added such a nice little twist to it all. YUM! I can't wait to fix it again! Thank you, Sylvie! You added joy to eating! :D

    This was pretty good. My husband who despises chicken actually wants to take the left overs for lunch tomorrow so that is really saying something! The only thing I did was reduce the nutmeg a bit, not a fan of it. And I pounded the chicken so that it was an even thickness throughout. Made recipe #175061 with it, and it went well together.

    OMG this is good! The family loved it, and I took the leftovers for lunch. It's easy to make, tastes delicious, and looks beautiful. I'll be making it for a group, and I know that it will be enjoyed. Thanks Sylvie,

Hi, I'm 31 and cooking and living in England. I was born in Germany and that's where I grew up and lived until I came to the UK to go to University in 1998. I never went back to live in Germany, even though all my family is still there.
