    Hello all, First of all this dish recieved 5 stars because anything I make turns out delicious. While cooking this dish the light aroma of parmesan crusted lemon filled my kitchen (mmmm so sweet and suttle). The chicken so moist it melts in your mouth after coming fresh off a skillet. When mixing it all together.. BAM it hits your nassel passages and explodes your brain with creamy melted parm and leafy spinach providing you with all your needed food groups for the day. - Chef Emerson

    Even my sort of picky 9 and 8 year olds ate this, and it was their first ever consumption of Spinach. I will definitely make this again.

    I made a sauce for it with light cream and a cup of freshly grated parmesan. You always need a sauce with pasta.

    My daughter likes it. I added heavy cream to provide more sauce.

    I thought it was great, but I did add heavy cream and the Parmesan when mixing all together to make a Mac and cheese consistency. I also added paparika and with these additions it tasted SO GOOD!! 😁😁 I loved it

    The lemon and the garlic didnt mix very well The blandness was somewhat a fault, but it was healthy though.

    Make sure to measure out the amount of spinach otherwise a bag will be too much.
