I’ve been trying to get more fruits and veggies in my diet. I’m pretty picky when it comes to the veggies but I am trying to expand my palate and try new things. Spinach is one of those foods where sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t. I tend to like it in salads over it being cooked. Since it is so good for you and full of nutrients, I’ve been trying different ways to eat it. I came across this Chicken Spinach Casserole recipe and decided to give it a try.
Chicken Spinach Casserole:
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of black pepper
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
2 cooked chicken breasts
10 oz frozen spinach, thawed and drained.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 X 9 baking dish with cooking spray.
Combine Mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic powder, pepper, Parmesan cheese, and shredded mozzarella in a medium bowl.
Toss 1/3 of the sauce with the chicken and spinach in another bowl. Add this mixture to the baking dish.
Pour the rest of the sauce mixture over the chicken and spinach
Bake, uncovered, 40 minutes or until top is golden brown.
Optional: Sprinkle extra mozzarella on top and let melt during the last 5 minutes of baking.
I liked this dish and it was pretty simple to make and it was even good as left overs the next day. It still isn’t my favorite way to eat spinach though. I will have to keep looking :).
