Hi Constance,

I make a different version of chicken florentine that is similar in some ways though. In mine I lightly wilt spinach (ideally fresh, but frozen will work too), oven bake some chicken (or turkey, or if you like veal) cutlets and at the last moment put a slice of buffalo (if available, if not good old cow's milk) mozza on the top to melt.

I plate the cutlets on the spinach and drizzle the whole thing in a homemade tomato sauce or occasionally a bechamel, either sauce includes garlic and/or onions.

I like your recipe too, I'll add it to my growing list of ones to try
