Spanakopita Chicken Ala Lori

Recipe by Lori Mama

When we were in Florida, we ate at this little Greek restaurant and I ordered a chicken dish with spinach in it. It was so tasty and the filling reminded me of Spanakopita. I'm sure it's not totally correct, but it's close. Note: The coating will not be browned when finished baking, but will be crisp.

What a delight! I was a bit scared about no seasoning on the chicken, but the cheese mix was flavor enough! I used fresh spinach, so there was no need to squeeze it dry, just chop it. Otherwise I followed the recipe as posted, except I did use the broiler to brown the panko a bit. This was delicious! Thanks for sharing Lori! Made for Photo Tag!
