    Reduced Fat Mayo with Olive Oil, 5 tbsp

    Garlic powder, .25 tsp

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spritz an 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Combine 10 oz. of cooked, cubed chicken breast or thighs with 10 oz. spinach in a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together 1/4 cup reduced fat Feta cheese and 3 oz. low fat shredded mozzarella cheese. Add 1/4 cup cheese mixture to the chicken and spinach and mix well. Spread evenly in the baking dish and sprinkle the rest of the cheese mixture on top.

    Just made this and it is very good. And to those saying it is not low-carb --- dishes CAN BE both low-carb AND low-fat. This one is both. The South Beach Diet stresses BOTH low-fat AND low-carb and the weight falls off! :) - 3/1/13

I made a few changes because I didnt have everything on hand. 4 tbsp mayo, sour cream and 3 tbsp cottage cheese, 2 oz of chedder drizzle of olive oil, 4 cloves of smashed minced garlic and salt and pepper to taste. 2 chicken thighs seasoned and cooked. - 10/7/14

  • I followed the recipe to the letter; it made enough for 3 meals. Even though it tasted good it was missing something; so I added some rice one night and quinoa the next. This reminds me of a greek dish call Spanokopita, without the phyllo dough. More spinach is needed not enough to fill me up. - 11/11/13

    It is not low carb because, in low carb cooking you always, without exception, use full fat ingredients. That is the whole point of low carb. I made it with full fat sour cream, it's low carb and delicious, thanks - 2/11/13
