I added a clove of crushed garlic to the spinach mixture - without it, it would have been bland. Entire family (including kids) LOVED this recipe. Easy and yummy!

I love this recipe. It is delicious for dieters and non-dieters!

Calories are definetly wrong. 376 in 8 oz chick, 40 in the oil, 90in the feta, 506 total not counting the veggies. One serving at least 253 calories. Still a good choice, but this is my first recipe look and now I have no confidence in the nutritional data here. I would eliminate the salt, too much for one meal.

I made this the other night and it was fantastic. I recommended it to a few friends and everyone said how delish it was. WE do a thing in my family, "repeat or reject" this def got a repeat!
