  1. Just wonderful. The only thing I would have liked was more explicit sauteeing instructions since my chicken was slightly overcooked since I was eyeballing the doneness. Nontheless....heavenly. Will make again.
     
  2. There isn't much else I can add to the other comments so I'll just add my own YUMMY!!! Thank you Marie. Chicken breasts are usually dry but these were moist and delicious!
     
  3. Chicken and filling is lovely, but the sauce is too 'stocky'. I added some lemon juice, oregano and tomato paste to the sauce, and it was much better. Garlic would also give the sauce more flavour.
     
  4. Wow this was great. I substituted about 1/2 c. of crumbled bleu cheese for the feta. Also added some minced fresh garlic and chopped scallion after browning the chicken bundles and before adding the stock, tomatoes and spinach. This looked beautiful on the platter and tasted marvelous. Ripe summer tomatoes took it over the top. Yum, yum!
     
  5. Absolutely Delish!! I scaled down to 2 servings & "jazzed it up" with fresh garlic. I didn't want to drive to town for 1/2 cup of fresh spinach so I used frozen - a ricer works very well to eliminate the liquid. We really enjoyed the sauce with plain steamed white rice. Another winner Marie - thanx!
