      @Diana Wenzel: This spinach chicken casserole is definitely delicious and nutritious. The spinach almost has the texture and taste of mozzarella cheese in this recipe. Nice.

      @anonymous: So glad that you gave my chicken spinach recipe a try. It is sort of a memory food for me because it is the first dish that I fed my husband after we met. (He kept turning up at supper time poor man was starving to death).

      I am definitely making this recipe. Sounds totally delicious and nutritious. I eat spinach most days so I am always on the lookout for new ways of cooking it. Thanks! Love that Polish tureen, too. Always fun to have something new and unique for serving a dish.

      @anonymous: Spinach and chicken just go so good together in a recipe. Not sure why but as it is so very healthy I guess the why is really not so important as the nutritional benefits of the recipe.

      @ajgodinho: It is funny but in this recipe the spinach actually has the taste and texture of mozzarella cheese. It is amazing how a recipe can change the flavor of a food.

      Yummmy, I have to tell the "cook" (that'd be mr. dellgirl) about this. He makes the best ever spinach salad and, we eat chicken a lot. Better yet, I'll just print the recipe and have it handy. Thanks for posting this delicious treat!

      This sounds like a great recipe. When we eat meat it's mostly chicken, and we love veggies too. You can't go far wrong with spinach. You made me hungry, even though it's only 6:45am! Blessed.
