    1. In large frying pan or under the grill, cook bacon until crispy. Chop into pieces and set aside.
    2. Dredge/coat chicken breasts in flour, then brown in a frying pan (or use the same frying pan with bacon grease left in it), until somewhat crispy on each side.
    3. Remove chicken from frying pan and drain off any bacon fat. Pour in white wine and add spinach; cover the frying pan and simmer over medium low heat until spinach is wilted.
    4. Add the cream and chicken breasts to the frying pan and mix with the spinach. Add chopped bacon to the chicken/spinach mixture. Cover frying pan and simmer for about 5 minutes.

    This recipe has the potential to be a good one, but the wine sauce was thin and strongly tasted of wine. You could not taste anything else but the wine. Next time, I will replace most of the wine with chicken stock and thicken the sauce with a little cornstarch or flour.  -  27 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good stuff! Everything went well as I was preparing this recipe. Step #3 says to pour out remaining bacon fat...I didn't have any left over. Actually I had to add a tablespoon of evoo to finish frying my chicken (no big deal). Then before I added the spinach I put 1 T of butter in the pan and sauted 2 big cloves of garlic. Then I immediately added the "wine" (I used chicken broth instead because I didn't have any wine)and the spinach. I used a whole bag of baby spinach and it was the right amount. My husband liked it, my 3 little girls liked it (5 year old kept asking for more cilantro (spinach!) with her chicken!) and I liked it. The sauce is very thin (no big deal to me). I can't wait to email the recipe to my sisters and mother-in-law! Thanks for another great one!  -  19 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used cream of chicken soup in lieu of heavy cream, but this recipe was wonderful!  -  09 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
