Greek Chicken Spinach Bake

I had cut this recipe out of my newspaper several years ago, and just stumbled upon it in my recipe holder. I had all of the ingredients handy, and it is a clean dish so I decided to make it! The thing I love most about this dish is that is a one pot wonder. I cooked all of my ingredients in one skillet, and put everything in one casserole dish. I love these type of meals! Here is what you need!


Olive Oil
1/2 small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 cup frozen chopped spinach (I used a 10 oz bag thawed)
1 cup quick cooking brown rice (I used minute rice and cooked it for half the time)
Salt, Pepper, Onion salt, Garlic salt, Oregano
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes
1 cup chicken broth
Reduced fat Feta cheese
2 tbls slivered almonds

Put a little bit of olive oil in a skillet, then add your onions. Add your garlic and spinach when your onions are almost done. Season with a little salt, pepper, onion and garlic salt, oregano and red pepper flakes. Heat through.

Remove from pan and place in a separate dish. Then put a little extra olive oil in the skillet and add your cubed chicken. Season with onion and garlic salt, salt and pepper, oregano. Once it is fully cooked I added a little bit of Greek salad dressing. (You don't have to do this, but I had it on hand so I used it.)

Grab a saucepan and fill it with water to start boiling. I used Uncle Ben's Brown Minute Rice. All I had to do was take a bag out and put it in the water. I cooked my rice for 6 minutes.

Using a 2 quart casserole dish put in your spinach and rice. Mix it around and add your chicken. I mixed the chicken in as well. Spread it out evenly and pour 1 cup of chicken stock over the whole casserole. *I added more chicken broth during cooking because it started to dry out* Place it in the oven at 350 degrees covered for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes are up, uncover it, and add feta and slivered almonds on top. Place it back in the oven for 10 more minutes.


I hope you enjoyed this healthy recipe as much as I did! If you make it, leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of it!
