My sister made this for Christmas Eve dinner and it was delicious. I asked for her recipe and she gave me a copy of Paula Deen's Chicken Florentine recipe with all sorts of notes scribbled onto it. I came home and promptly made up a batch (which is enough to serve 4 families), two to freeze and save and two to give away. I was sitting down to type the recipe out for my recipe book and thought why not share it with you all?! Hope you enjoy!
