How could you change this recipe up if using fresh spinach?
Linda, if using fresh spinach, cook it on the stovetop with 1 tablespoon of olive oil until wilted. Or wilt it in the microwave oven in batches. Then add it to the dip.
I love this recipe! It's flavorful and easy to make! The first time I fixed it, I felt it was a little on the dry side but still delicious. The 2nd time, after prepping the dish for the oven, I poured some heavy cream over the top and it made a wonderful creamy sauce! Thanks for this wonderful dish!
Kelly, I am so flattered by your comment - glad you've enjoyed this dish more than once! Love the addition of heavy cream sauce to soak up the flavors from the chicken and the toppings - sounds delicious! 🙂
Excellent flavour. The dip was great with crackers ( I only made 3 chicken breasts so I had some leftover).
Linda, I am glad you tried the recipe and liked it! Glad you put the remaining dip to good use!
Chicken Florentino bake when do you add cream cheese and parmesan it doesn't say
Do you use the boneless breasts?
Yes, those are skinless, boneless chicken breasts.
My family loved this. Even my toddler ate it up!
So glad you enjoyed this chicken bake!
Hello Julia, Can I use seasoned, canned tomatoes instead of roasted ones? I like them. Would you strain or cook them in the tomatoes juices?
Hi Kat! You can try using canned tomatoes instead of sun-dried tomatoes. I would drain them really well. The end result will probably be more watery than if you used sun-dried tomatoes, but it will still be delicious!
Wow what an amazing dish!!!
We are a older couple of 2 and appetites aren’t what they used to be. Can I freeze? If so before cooking or after?
You can freeze this. I would freeze this after cooking. Freeze the cooked chicken in an air-tight container.
