Chicken Florentine

I just had to share this recipe, it is AMAZING!!! What is also amazing is that I have a Secret Cook Fairy who sends me a weekly menu with the recipes and grocery list included! How lucky am I????? Secret Cook Fairy, you know who you are and I love you dearly!!!! Thank You so much. Anyway I made this the other night and it was too good not to share. I wish I had a picture because it looked almost as good as it tasted. I also ran this recipe through my Weight Watchers and for one serving (which is alot, I could have easily eaten a half serving) it was 12 points.
