I really liked this one! I stuffed the chicken and sauteed some yellow onion instead of tomatos (can't stand them). I did season the chicken with some red pepper flakes to give it a bit of a kick.

This was a very satisfying meal! I replaced the tomatoes with red bell peppers and onions because I didnt have tomatoes and it was wonderful

We love it and it's so east to make! We grilled the chicken, sauteed onion and garlic, then added extra spinach, the tomato and cheese.
