Spinach Chicken Bake



Introduction

Spinach, Chicken and Cheese Oh my. Delicious recipe I found while on the Southbeach Diet. Spinach, Chicken and Cheese Oh my. Delicious recipe I found while on the Southbeach Diet.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 cups diced boneless skinless chicken breast (I usually need 2 or 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts)
    1 10 oz package of frozen spinach
    1/2 cup of Fat Free Sour Cream
    1/2 cup Light Mayo
    1/4 Mozzarella low moisture part skim cheese
    1 cup Parmesean Cheese (I usually use reduced fat parmesean, but all I had on hand was regular)
    2 tsp garlic powder

Directions

Season chicken breast the way you would like and cook as you normally would. I usually season mine with some Mrs. Dash and a little garlic powder, then bake it with tin foil over it for 30 minutes, then 10 minutes without tin foil.

When chicken is done, you can start the cheese mixture. Mix sour cream, parmesean cheese, light mayo, mozzarella, and garlic powder in medium bowl.

Once chicken is cool enough to handle, cut into small pieces (2 cups worth) then pour into medium bowl. Drain 10 oz package of frozen spinach, then add to chicken and mix together.

Once spinach and chicken is mixed well add HALF the cheese mixture. Mix well. Then pour the chicken, spinach mixture into round pan or dish and pack down. Take remaining mixture and spread over the top.

Place in oven for 45 minutes at 350 degree's. Makes about 6 one cup servings (though I'm not positive. sorry)

This is a pretty good meal. I'm sure you can rearrange things to your liking :)

  • I didn't have sour cream so I made it with cottage cheese instead. Flavor was really good. I only used 2 chicken breasts which may have not been 2 cups so it was a little runny.. so I think next time I will make some rice to put it over. Very good - 10/18/10

  • Easy to make and had a great flavor. My husband loved it. I used light miracle whip. It was a little bland. I felt it was missing something. I will experiment more with adding different spices. - 10/7/09

  • Well, I tried it, and either the frozen spinach was freezer burned, or I just can't get used to the funky flavour of that green leafy veggie. That said, I really liked the cheese sauce, and when I try it again, I'm going to try something like broccoli, or maybe some swiss chard. - 7/30/09

    I'm sure this is delicious, but for lowering calories/fat, is it really necessary to have sour cream AND mayo AND mozzarella AND parmigiano? - 7/7/09
