Recipe: Cheesy Chicken Florentine

This recipe is simply delicious yet easy to make

Cheesy Chicken Florentine Ingredients

  • 2 (12 ounce) packages frozen spinach souffle, thawed

  • 2 cups cooked white rice

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided

  • cup chopped onion

  • 2 teaspoons prepared Dijon-style mustard

  • teaspoon salt

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 cup fresh bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

How to Make Cheesy Chicken Florentine

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl stir together the spinach souffle, rice, milk, 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, onion, mustard and salt. Transfer mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish, and cover with aluminum foil or a lid.

  3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven.

  4. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, saute the chicken breasts in oil until both sides are golden brown and the juices run clear. Arrange the chicken on top of the spinach mixture.

  5. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, butter or margarine and remaining 1/2 cup Swiss cheese; sprinkle over the chicken. Bake uncovered for an additional 25 minutes, or until the spinach mixture is set, the chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

Cheesy Chicken Florentine Reviews

  • I made this with tortillini noodles instead of rice and it was delicious. Also, I just used plain frozen spinach not the souffle and it was still great.

  • This is an excellent recipe. Make sure you season the chicken before you brown it. It tastes better the second day

  • I used crumbled Ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs... worked very well as a substitute.

  • This recipe is delicious Ive made it several times according to the recipe and Ive found that a few small changes help tremendously. First I brown the chicken on both sides (not cooking all the way through) and put that on top of the rice mixture along with the bread crumbs and cover with foil instead of putting the rice in by itself. After 25 minutes I take the foil off and cook the rest of the way. Also I use Italian flavored bread crumbs, which kick it up a notch. The last thing is I substitute brown rice and you can hardly tell the difference. Very delicious recipe Thank you

  • The first time I made this dish, I was very astonished with the result. Such a yummy recipeThanks for sharing :)

  • A simple casserole...nothing spectacular. I did not try crushed Ritz crackers, but that certainly would be more flavorful than plain breadcrumbs. Edited 6-30-05 to add that this is the exact same recipe as the Cheesy Chicken Florentine recipe submitted by Stouffers on this web site.

  • I used the Ritz crackers as one reviewer suggested becasue I thought it would be tastier than bread crumbs. I thought this was good; my husband really liked it; teenage daughter inhaled the spinach part but wasnt too interested in the chicken. There isnt anything complicated about this, but it seemed to take a little more time and effort than most "easy recipes". It probably would help if I had some leftover rice ,rather than having to cook some for the recipe. I would make this again.

  • My family really enjoyed this one and it was easy to prepare. Would definitely do again

  • It was ok, not that happy, but good.

  • This was super yummy I only made half the recipe and it was way more than enough for my husband and I.

  • Thought Id like this a lot. It wasnt bad, but it was more like spinach souffle with chicken & rice ... Oh, yeah. It was. :) I only made half the recipe & it was plenty - would serve six.

  • I love all the ingredients in this dish, but was dissapointed with how flavorless it was. I may try again adding more spices or taking some of the other reviewers sugestions of using cracker crumbs.

  • I got this recipe off a few years ago and it is awesome My whole family loves it so I have to make it at least once a month.

  • Really tasty I really liked this recipe It made a mess of the kitchen but was well worth it. I took the advice of another review and used Ritz crackers as the crunchy crumble on top. YUM

  • Made this one today to take to my husbands work for lunch. We shared with other co-workers and everyone thought it was really good... and had seconds

  • We really liked this-it was great comfort food

  • I coated the chicken first in flour then egg wash then in seasoned bread crumbs and cooked it in hot oil instead of just browning it, it was really good and flavorful. Having a rice cooker helps to make this recipe an easy one too

  • Delicious and very easy to make Thanks

  • I enjoy this a lot. Ive madr it with chicken but Ive also used fish instead. It does make a lot so I usually cut it in half.

  • Requires a lot of dirty dishes since several things need to be cooked seperately. Will probably make one more time to see if it turns out better next time to warrent the extra work.

  • Added extra cheese, onion and a touch of garlic. Had lost the recipe and stouffers no longer list it on line. So glad to find it again.

  • I did not care for this recipe. I followed the directions exactly. What a waste of ingredients.

  • My family loves this meal However I double the bread crumb/cheese mixture on top of chicken and only use 1 spinach souffle in rice mixture.

  • Not much flavor for the amount of work involved
