  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium casserole dish.
  2. Place potatoes in a pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes, or until tender but firm. Cool, and partially mash together with 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup sour cream. Set aside.
  3. Place sun-dried tomatoes, butter, spinach, garlic, and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese in a blender or food processor, and blend until almost smooth.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion and green bell pepper until tender. Reserve remaining oil in skillet, and spread onion and pepper over the bottom of the casserole dish. Top with the potato mixture.
  5. Mix the sun-dried tomato mixture into the skillet with the remaining oil. Place chicken in skillet, and cook 4 minutes on each side over medium heat, until browned and juices run clear. Arrange chicken and sun-dried tomato mixture over the potato mixture in the casserole dish, and top with remaining 1 cup sour cream.
  6. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.

The name of this recipe doesn't do it justice as there are SO many wonderful flavours in this dish! I will be making this again, but next time I will use less sour cream on top of the chicken... I found it a little too much (and I LOVE sour cream!). The potatoes were the best I've ever tasted, and I may keep them separate from the rest of the dish next time. Also, I will use my food processor for the sun-dried tomato/spinach mixture, as it would not come together in the blender, even after adding a little olive oil to help emulsify it. But a very tasty chicken dish, for sure!

My husband and I were looking for a quick, tasty meal. Although not quick, this dish was very good! The recipe suggests 15 minutes prep time, but it took us more like 30 minutes. Instead of chicken tenderloins, we used two large boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips. The pesto mix was incredible, and it would probably be great on its own, tossed with some pasta. Overall, tasty, but prep time long. Would be best cooked for a weekend meal when you have more time.

I used frozen spinach instead of fresh and thin cut chicken breasts instead of regular because that's what I had on hand. I didnt think it was very quick and I had my doubts about it while I was making it, but it turned out WONDERFUL! I will definately make this again, and again, and again.

Delicious & versatile! I can't even explain how much I loved this! I used a Vidalia onion instead of red, no green peppers, 2 cloves garlic, frozen spinach, salt and freshly ground black pepper, and fat-free sour cream (couldn't even tell the difference!!!). I added about a tbsp. of butter to the potato mix as well. Next time, I will leave the parmesan out of the spinach mix, because it stuck all over the bottom of my non-stick pan when I sauteed it with the chicken. You could make this vegetarian, substituing your favorite veggie for the chicken.

I'm a single girl and a picky eater, so I just used the pesto mixture with the chicken and the recipe was great! Pesto mixture for me included some garlic, spinach, sun dried tomato, a little sour cream, a little parmesean cheese and a dash of lemon. Stuffed the chicken breast with it and fried it in a pan. Fantastic!

Excellent recipe. I had no bell peppers and had only frozen spinach but the flavor was excellent, and easy to prepare. Rather skimpy serving for 6 though. It needed bread(I made a lightly herbed quick bread)as well as vegetables, to round out the meal. I will make it again.

Very tasty. I used bok choy in the pesto mixture instead of spinach. I would probably bump up the garlic next time I made it.
