I was trying to find something for dinner, I knew the ingredients I had on hand so I decided to try this! I didn’t have spinach, I thought I did! I made the chicken as directed and then, I thought I had heavy cream, but I didn’t! Ha, so I substituted Ricotta cheese! It turned out really good! I plan to cook it again with Spinach and heavy cream! But….this was really good! Thank you for sharing!
Glad you enjoyed it!! Thanks for taking the time to comment!
