I love one dish meals, it makes for quick prep and easy clean up. I made this earlier this summer I prepped it all in the morning and when we got back from a day on the lake, I simply popped it in the oven. We all finished with showers and dinner was ready! I think this would also freeze well if made ahead of time. I would probably leave the spinach out and just quickly cook it while the chicken bakes. If you put on top I would worry the spinach would burn and not be steamed like. Can’t wait to make a bigger batch of this next time so we have more leftovers.
Creamy Spinach Chicken
(Adapted from Alyona’s Cooking)
1 lb chicken breasts thinly sliced
8 oz fresh spinach
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese grated
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp garlic salt
Preheat the oven to 500°F. Lightly spray a 13 by 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Pack the fresh spinach onto the bottom of the baking dish and top with uncooked chicken breasts.
Spread the creamy sauce mixture evenly over the top and sprinkle 1 cup of grated cheese over the top. (I added a little extra seasoning on top before adding the cheese.)
Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until spinach shrinks and chicken breasts cook thoroughly.
