Over the weekend I managed to bake a new spin on an old casserole – an easy chicken and spinach casserole. The original recipe for this easy chicken and spinach casserole came from a friend and I’m not sure where she found it.
I didn’t have all the ingredients so I improvised a bit, but it came out great! Here’s the finished product, along with the recipe and a photo for the easy chicken and spinach casserole.
Easy Chicken and Spinach Casserole
1 Chicken Breast (Cooked and Shredded)
1 Package Frozen Spinach (Thaw and Rinse)
1 Cup Shredded Cheese (I used cheddar)
1/4 Cup of Milk
3 Tbs. Flour
Garlic Powder to Taste
Bread Crumbs (for topping)
Directions: Mix all ingredients together and then pour into an 8 by 8-inch pan sprayed with olive oil. Top with bread crumbs. Bake at 350-degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Serves four.
Spinach Chicken Bake
I hope you enjoy making this easy chicken and spinach casserole. I like this recipe because not only is it easy to make it also contains a good source of protein, carbohydrates and spinach is a nutrient-packed vegetable and leafy green.
It also makes for a good leftover and doesn’t take very long to make.
Do you like spinach fresh or frozen best?
