Pretty good! I do feel this needs some "tweaking" to be a 5 star recipe tho. First off, let me say that this takes WAAAY more than 20 min. to prepare. By the time you trim your spinach, chop your tomatoes & pound / stuff your chicken, the time zooms by! Another thing to note.... Most everyone has added extra flour or switched to cornstarch to thicken the sauce. A sauce doesn't have to be thick to be considered "sauce." Sauces are lovely when thin - a drizzle of "light" sauce over each chicken breast is exactly what OAKLEY intended. Having said this, I did find it necessary to enhance the sauce a bit (it was lacking "oomph," IMHO). Even though I only prepped 3 breasts, I made enough sauce for 6 breasts. I used chicken broth instead of H2O / bullion & in place of 1/2 c. worh of it, I subbed white wine. I also added a T of fresh lemon juice & 2 minced garlic cloves. I used quite a bit more spinach (1/2 of my 1 lb. pkg. = ~ 5 c.) & 1/2 a pint of halved grape tomatoes rather than a chopped tomato. Both my hubs & I do not care for sauteed spinach, so I added mine during the last 2 min. of cooking time as Morena did. The spinach retained its beautiful, bright color & was only slightly wilted which was perfect for us. All in all, this was very good, but I'd omit the spinach / tomato next time. I really don't think they add to the dish (the sauce, w/ my enhancements, stole the show!). Served w/ couscous & focaccia, this was a decent meal. Thanks for sharing OAKLEY! :-)
