"Rich, yes but worth all the fat and calories! I've used leftover turkey in place of the chicken, some other options I have used with success; add in some sauted mushrooms or canned sliced, saute a yellow onion and 2 garlic cloves with spinach, added in some sun-dried tomatoes, Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, the possibilities with this is endless, whatever you should decide to add in it will be delicious and even if you make it just as is I know it will be great also! Double amounts if you are going to serve more that six people"

As soon as I saw this recipe I ran to my kitchen to make it, I had frozen chicken and spinach in my freezer plus all other ingredients, so it only took minutes to prepare, yes rich but absolute creamy heaven, I LOVE this recipe and I plan on making it again for the holidays but I will triple amounts, I baked mine in a 8 x 8-inch dish and it was not very high, when I make it again with amounts as written I'm thinking of possibly baking it in a glass loaf pan, however it is a fantastic tasting creamy spinach recipe I'll make many more times, thank you very much for sharing your recipe here CheapCook! My photos show a prebaked and then baked.
