This was very good. Except I did not grill my chicken, but cooked it in a skillet. Bet it would taste even better grilled.

Any time I see something Florentine on the menu it usually means on a bed of wilted spinach…soooo gooood. This also works well with salmon filets if you want to increase those Omega 3's in your eating plan.

Just wanted you to know that I cooked this one. It tasted as good as I knew that it would. I love spinach with anything.
