Smothered Italian Chicken ....

This is one very tasty chicken dinner recipe that will fast become a favorite.
I made this a few days before the boys left for Pa and it was a huge hit with them.
There is one in the house who is not a fan of mayonnaise or spinach and the other was not too sure of the crackers but in the end they ate it all and were were looking for more.  :D
The crushed crackers added a wonderful crunch and taste to the chicken. 
Fast and tasty this was one meal that pleased all.
