in top of double boiler over simmering water until sauce begins to
thicken (3-4 mins.) Add remaining butter, cayenne & mustard and
whisk till thick. Place chicken on platter and pour sauce over.
Serves 4.
(In place of this sauce, Knorr’s hollandaise would be fine. Just
add cayenne & mustard to it)

When you want to double this recipe and make 8 bundles of chicken, don’t double the spinach mixture. This rcipe is enough for 8 chicken bundles. Actually it’s just as easy to make 8 as 4. Delicious!
