Spinach Chicken Bake

Submitted by: SILLY_ME

Introduction

Spinach, Chicken and Cheese Oh my. Spinach, Chicken and Cheese Oh my.
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 :)

    This recipe was really good! A perfect way to use up left over chicken. I took another reviewer's suggestion and used fresh baby spinach that I chopped. Served it with linguine . Very rich and decadent tasting, without breaking the diet budget. Thank you for sharing this! - 3/12/09

    This dish is a winner! Since my sour cream was frozen (was in the back of the fridge), I had to use fat free Greek yogurt instead. Also, instead of using 1/2 cup of light mayo, I only used 1/4 cup of mayo and added a 1/4 cup of skim milk. We served with a side of spaghetti. Turned out great! - 5/21/09

    My only problem with this recipe is I had a hard time stopping at 1 serving! It was so good! I added marinated artichoke hearts and used shredded parm, romano, asiago cheese instead of just parm. Fabulous! - 4/26/09

    Very good! I actually will experiment with adding MORE spinach and/or artichoke hearts next time I make this. This satisfies my craving for both spinach/artichoke dip and creamed spinach! - 3/30/09

    This was so good! I used Miracle Whip Light, and the final result was a little tangy. I ate it with Paula Deen's cottage cheese potatoes. Yummmmmm! - 3/17/09

    This was very good. My husband & I both enjoyed it but the kids, not so much, what do you expect from a 1 & 2 yr old? I added some artichoke hearts & served it over pasta. for myself I steamed broccoli & ate it over that. next time I think I will add some lemon juice to add a little zing. Thanks! - 3/14/09

    We really liked this. I agree, the portion sizes are a little tough - we ended up with 4 servings, definitely making this less healthy than it starts. I added in some smoked paprika just to give it a little more dimension. Also, used leftover turkey instead of chicken. - 2/7/09

    YUMM-O! I was lazy today so threw everything into the crockpot on low for 4 hours and it came out great. I used 4 oz light cream cheese in place of mayo (fiance won't eat mayo) and I added mushrooms. It was delicious! Served over WW egg noodles. Lowfat alfredo-type pasta! Thanks again! - 1/18/09
