Needs some adjustments but flavor is good!

3.5 - we used chicken breast instead it was good sauce was a little watery

It was very good. We used half of the amount of pepper called for and it was almost to spicy for me. Double cheese of course. Will make this again.

I modified the recipe slightly due to things I did or did not have on hand very tasty and will definitely make this again.
needed more salt but very good.

I had frozen spinach rather than fresh and it turned out well

Simply delicious! My kids , who don’t like chicken, loved it. Quick, easy, yummy!
was delicious and very simple to prepare. I could have used more spinach and tomato. i do recommend with the simmer time adding the tomato and spinach in that step, but it was amazing and i have left over for luch tommorow
Really tasty and will be making it on a regular basis...needs to have more vegetables added to it. More of a stew or soup than a dinner - unless I reduce the amount of sauce.

Flavors really good. Used bone in breasts cut in half instead of thighs, so I expected a longer cook time. Covered it for 12 and uncovered for 12. I left out spinach until the end because in my experience the spinach ends up slimy otherwise. I followed the recipe this time, but next time I’ll add all the dairy at the end. The cheese clumped up and the sauce wasn’t creamy.
Its absolutely yummy
I would suggest adding less chicken broth because I had to add flour to thicken the cream sauce up other that we loved it
Not bad, but the sauce is too thin, ended up almost like a soup. I recommend adding some flour or cornstarch to make it thicker.

This dish was amazing ! Please be sure to drain ALL the fat once the chicken is made but other then that everybody loved it!
Yummy! Just added some cornstarch to thicken it up :)

Amazing, tweaked the recipe a bit added more spinach, about another cup, used skinless chicken thighs, 6 pieces.

Delicious! I added a shallot and used smoked paprika. Ate it on a bed of gemelli noodles

It was delicious. I added some more parmesan and mozzarella to make it extra cheesy.
It tastes great! However I baked it in the ove at 200 Celsius for 30 minutes instead of shimmering it
Very good. I doubled everything as there were four of us, and also used cream cheese. i didn't double the chicken stock, so I think that's why it ended up a bit dry.
Good, but I used chicken breasts

Sauce was runny so I took a reviewer’s advice and added flour. That worked. Chicken wasn’t cooked thoroughly. I would sear for close to 6-7 minutes next time.

SOOO good. Took another reviewers advice and switched the half n half for sour cream. Also added bell peppers and onion. Delicious!

I switched the half n half for left over sour cream and that gravy was everything.
used boneless thighs, sauce was kinda thin, but super flavorful. will make again and serve over grits or polenta instead of with potatoes.
it was fantastic. Will do again in the future.
Great👍 easy recipe!

It was pretty good but did not have half and half so had to use milk. I would not recommend that in the future.
Hi Melinda 15 Apr
Chicken and potatoes need much more cooking time, but this dish was absolutely delicious! Definitely worth another dinner!

This is definitely going to be a new regular dish for my boyfriend and I. I used heavy whipping cream instead of half & half and added rosemary, more potatoes, and another two cloves of garlic. The results were spectacular!
