This is a quick, delicious meal. Basically done in one pot. Clean up is a breeze. I used a rotisserie chicken to make it even easier.

I double the batch, as my kids love the leftovers.

It's creamy good! The spinach is cooked to perfection, in just a few minutes.

I hope you like it as much as we do..I just serve it with some crusty Vienna bread as it is quite filling.


Enjoy!
