ingredients

directions

  • Thaw spinach and preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Chop chicken into cubes of about 1 square inch ( or 2.5 cm squared).
  • Cook chicken in skillet with tbsp of vegetable oil until mostly cooked through. Do not cook through completely or chicken will get dry.
  • Cut gouda into strips and melt it in 1/4 cup of fat free milk. (I usually do this in the microwave by cooking and stirring every few minutes).
  • While cheese is melting, mix together the chicken and spinach in a casserole dish so that spinach is dispersed evenly throughout. If you have more chicken than spinach, add a bit more spinach keeping in mind it will shrink as it gets cooked!
  • As soon as cheese is melted pour immediately over the chicken and spinach. Do not mix again! The cheese will melt through the layers as it cooks.
  • Melt the butter and add to it the breadcrumbs.
  • Using your fingers or a fork, crumble together the breadcrumb and butter mixture and sprinkle evenly over the top of the dish.
  • Sprinkle remaining 2 tbsp of breadcrumbs and chili powder evenly over dish.
  • Bake covered for about 35-40 minutes.
