    kitchengrrl's Note:

    This was a quick "throw together" meal one night recently, and it worked out great. Sorry, no exact proportions on a lot of things. It's very much an "eyeball" recipe. Use as much or as little of the ingredients as you like.

      This is such a great recipe. It took no time at all to make, but it was very rewarding because it was so good. I used lots of seasoning, so it was very flavourful. We had this with Greek rice, and it was a perfect dinner. I'll definetely make this again. Thanks!

      this is lovely! i used vegetarian "chicken" breasts and it was a fast, tasty, easy dinner. the first time i made as written other then using all lemon juice instead of the vinegar and zest since that's what i had and was very pleased. just now i used lemon zest and juice along with a handful of fresh dill and some garlic and onion powder and olive oil as the marinade and added onions to the spinach. that's really good too! what a nice versatile recipe. isn't it odd how cooked spinach, if let to cool starts leaving an odd chalky feeling on your teeth? make sure to serve really hot.
