  • About This Recipe

    “I adopted this recipe from Recipezzar. It used to be called just Chicken Parmesan, but most other dishes with that name on here are tomato based and I wanted to make clear that this one isn’t. I have also changed the amounts of some of the ingredients as I felt they just weren’t quite balanced. This can easily be doubled .”

  • “Its great – Cheesy but with subtle spinach undertones.We made it twice.Some things I would do differently:Halve the amount of Nutmeg.Reserve Half of the milk/spinach topping to mix with pasta served with this dish.Great recipe!Thanks for posting!”

  • “I made one serving of this last night for my dinner, using thinly sliced boneless skinless chicken breast and soy parmesan cheese.I didn’t add the nutmeg, as I chickened out and ommitted the margarine, using just a little Pam in the skillet.I know the soy parm. took a little flavor away, but all in all, this was simply devine!I can’t rave enough over it!I’ve already printed out 2 copies of it for my aunts who love spinach as much as I do.The chicken came out so tender and juicy and the sauce tasted simply sinful!I wish I could give more stars for sure!And, just as a note, no one forget those pimientos, as they added such a nice little twist to it all.YUM!I can’t wait to fix it again!Thank you, Sylvie!You added joy to eating!:D”

  • “This was pretty good.My husband who despises chicken actually wants to take the left overs for lunch tomorrow so that is really saying something! The only thing I did was reduce the nutmeg a bit, not a fan of it. And I pounded the chicken so that it was an even thickness throughout.Made recipe #175061 with it, and it went well together.”

  • “OMG this is good!The family loved it, and I took the leftovers for lunch.It’s easy to make, tastes delicious, and looks beautiful.I’ll be making it for a group, and I know that it will be enjoyed.Thanks Sylvie,”

  • “loved this meal…even the kids who hated spinachloved this.”

  • “DELICIOUS and healthy too. My boyfriend and I loved it.”

  • “Didnt like it with the spinach I used.And I dont like pimentos. So I cant give it 5 star, but I can give it 4 and a half.I would make it again Minus the two Ingrediants.Maybe use baked cheese instead”
