    This is yummy! Easy to make. Used 1/2c coconut cream & 1/2 c cashew milk, sub due to family milk allergies. Also added 1 diced garlic clove to the onions as they sautéed, just because.

    The color pop in this dish is enough to make it restaurant worthy! Then add in the richness factor from the dairy products and excellent flavors and boom, you have a satisfying dinner. I added a whole cut up zucchini with the onion sautéing. Thickened up the sauce a bit, at the very end. Served with a multigrain bread round and olive dipping oil!

    Great recipe! I made a few changes that I would do again- instead of spinach, I used kale. I also added 6-7 baby portobello mushrooms and about 6 stalks of asparagus cut to 1 inch. When returning the chicken to sauce, I laid it on top and closed with the lid for it to simmer for 5 minutes.

    Pretty easy to make and very good. I cut the recipe in half, added too much cheese and forgot the spinach . Next time I will add mushrooms too but the recipe is a keeper. Even my wife enjoyed it and she doesn’t like chicken.

    It tasted amazing, but I think there was to much oil from the chicken that didn’t mix well with the cream which made the sauce kinda clumpy. But it didn’t affect the flavour.

    I made this last night. I scaled down the recipe to 2 servings and served it over pasta. I added 1 1/2 tbsp of creamed cheese with chives & added garlic powder and onion powder to the chicken seasoning. Had a glass of wine it, it was easy and delicious.
