The BEST Chicken and Spinach Casserole

Submitted by: SHARILYNN757
The BEST Chicken and Spinach Casserole

Introduction

This is the best chicken & spinach casserole ever! I found this recipe online @ 3fatchicks.com! This is the best chicken & spinach casserole ever! I found this recipe online @ 3fatchicks.com!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 cups diced cooked chicken breast
    10 oz. box of frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
    1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
    1/2 cup mayonaise
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon white pepper (or black)
    3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup l/f mozzarella

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Combine the chicken and spinach in a greased 8"X8" baking dish. Mix remaining ingredients together. Mix about a 1/4 of the sauce mixture with the chicken and spinach mixture and spread out across the bottom of the dish. Spread the rest of the sauce mixture over the chicken and spinach. Bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes or until top is nicely browned. The browner the top is (not burnt though) the better this dish is.

    Delicious but quite rich. I added mushrooms and used half fat mayo. I think next time I'll use about half the cheese recommended in order to cut back the fat a bit. - 1/16/12

    This was FABULOUS. I cooked the cubed raw chicken in some olive oil with red onions, mushrooms, salt and pepper. When it was almost done I added 2 minced garlic cloves. I mixed everything together, rather than layering, and sprinkled the top with a little paprika. I also added cream to the sauce - 7/10/12

    My husband really loved this and even went back for seconds. He said he does not usually like these kind of dishes but he loved this one. I made the Carbquik Redlobster cheese biscuits to go with this. - 1/21/14

    Loved this! Used nonfat plain greek yogurt in place of 1/2 the mayo, and added some milk and garlic. Used fresh spinach and a bit less parmesan. Served over whole wheat pasta and cooked carrots. Will definitely make again! - 1/21/13

    This was so good!!!! I cooked chicken tenders and cubed them they I mixed in the remaining ingredients, rather than layering them. I then put it in the fridge and popped it in the oven when I got home from work. I served it over the top of wheat couscous. I topped with fresh diced tomatoes. Yum - 7/8/11

  • I've made several recipes from this site and even with decent reviews they've been hit or miss, but this one is extremely good! And low carb. It's also very easy to make. The instructions say the browner the better and that's true too. Try this one! - 11/12/11

  • I gotta admit. I didn't read the directions, mixed everything together, but it still tasted great. I did a couple of changes-used FF cottage cheese instead of sour cream - ran it thru a blender to cream it. Also added 1/2 of finely chopped med onion. Still tasted great! - 10/15/11

  • I made this tonight and it was awesome! Since it was pretty creamy, I decided to make open faced sandwiches with an english muffin. Very yummy!! The best thing about this recipe is that it took 15 min to prepare, and while it was baking, I got my workout done! - 10/6/09
