INGREDIENTS LIST FOR THE SPINACH CHICKEN CASSEROLE
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut horizontally
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cup spinach, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 oz Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • The marinade:
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, optional

DIRECTIONS
1. Add olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes into a zip top bag along with 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Seal the bag and shake until mixed. Add the chicken breasts, seal, and massage so the chicken is covered in the marinade, set aside for 10-15 minutes while you prep the remaining ingredients. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400ºF (200°C).
2. Quickly wilt the spinach in a skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil, set aside.
3. Arrange chicken breasts drained from the marinade in a baking dish. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the chicken and lay spinach on top of the cream cheese. Finally, sprinkle mozzarella over the top.
4. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Chicken is done when cooked through to an internal temperature of 165˚F (75°C). Serve warm with a side of cauliflower rice, or baked veggies. Enjoy!
