I'm so proud of this book and I wanted to share one of the recipes that I wrote for it – the creamy chicken spinach bake! When you need something comforting, filling, and satisfying – try this dish!

How to Make a Keto Creamy Chicken and Spinach Bake

Spray a medium baking dish with cooking spray, and spread out some diced chicken chicken in the dish. Layer some fresh baby spinach over the top, keeping it as flat as possible. You could also replace the fresh spinach with a 10 oz box of thawed, thoroughly drained frozen spinach.

In a medium bowl, combine some cream cheese, shredded mozzarella, sour cream, and garlic. You can use a stronger cheese if you prefer – sharp cheddar would be good. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon the mixture on top of the spinach.

Cover with kitchen foil and bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, uncover, and top with more mozzarella. Return to the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165°F (a meat thermometer is useful for this!).

Can I use frozen spinach leaves?

@Laurie Bunting, I would think if you defrost the spinach then squeeze as much water out of it as you can by using cheese cloth or strong paper towels. I do this for my quiche recipe that calls for fresh spinach. It works wonderfully!

I haven't tried it, so I'm not sure if it would affect the texture of the finished dish. If you try it please let me know how it turns out!
