I really liked this recipe. My husband thought it was great! I did vary this up a bit, using most of the same ingredients, but in different amounts & prepared differently based on previous reviews. Things like less canned spinach, Italian seasoning, butter, lemon juice & mozzarella; sauteing the mushrooms & and chicken in a skillet; & adding uncooked instant rice on top of the spinach layer to help with the "too liquidy" complaint while making this mor of an actual casserole. I also added a drained can of quartered artichoke hearts before pouring on the sauce & left out the bacon. The finished dish was very good with the changes, but I would do a few things differently next time to make it even better. First, I cut the chicken into 1" pieces, again to make this more of a casserole, but sauteing & then baking left them overcooked. Next time I will not pre-cook the chicken. Also, even though I basically doubled most of the other ingredients since I had more chicken & wanted to use a 9"x13" pan, I only used 1 tbsp of Italian seasoning & thought that was still too much. I will use a 1/2 tbsp next time. I also sprinkled some seasoned salt & pepper over the spinach layer since canned spinach is bland & there is no salt or pepper called for in the recipe. I will also increase the rice amount to 1 1/2 cups (up from 1 cup). The end result was delicious & something I am looking forward to making again. Thanks!
