This recipe happened by mistake last night and turned out beautiful, so I had to share. I am leaving for vacation and wanted to use up a few things in the refrigerator so they did not go bad. And what do you know, it turned into a Chicken Florentine.
This is great served with a side of Wheat Penne pasta, Angel Hair, or even Couscous. If you are doing a low carb diet serve it with a side of Spaghetti Squash.
This makes a great casserole for company. Would love to hear from you please share any comments or suggestions. Enjoy!
