This was very tasty! I had all the ingredients on hand except the carrots but had a can of mushrooms (which sounded like a nice addition) so I used them instead. Also used chicken thighs instead of breast because I had them to use. I pre-cooked the spinach in the microwave, drained out some of the extra liquid and then mixed in the cheese which softened the cheese easily. I used about 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper and I think thyme or italian seasoning would be nice additions to this. Baked at 375Â°Â for 18 min. I will keep this recipe in mind the next time I have leftover cooked chicken to use. Thanks!
It was easy to make, but hubby and I felt that it reminded us of a spinach dip, not a casserole.<br/>Would not make again. It tasted better reheated.
didn't like this recipe.
