Directions

1. To make the creamy chicken breast bake: Preheat your oven to 375ºF (190ºC).

2. In a baking dish, marinate chicken breasts with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, red chili pepper flakes, onion powder, paprika, a little of the drained oil from the sundried tomatoes, and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.

3. Top the seasoned chicken breasts with chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Then cover with chopped spinach.

4. To make the cream sauce: heat 1/2 tablespoon butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add minced garlic and saute for about a minute, until fragrant. Add the heavy whipping cream and crumbled bouillon cube. Lower the heat and bring to a gentle simmer for about 10 minutes. The sauce should thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon. Add 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella to the sauce and mix well until incorporated.

5. When the sauce is ready, pour over the chicken, sundried tomatoes, and spinach in the baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup shredded parmesan on top. Bake the chicken casserole in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.

6. Remove from the oven and serve the creamy chicken breast bake immediately, sprinkled with fresh chopped parsley and a side of cauliflower rice, for example. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the creamy chicken breast bake recipe

This creamy chicken breast bake recipe is super easy and versatile. Here are a few tips to make it even better:

  • You can cut the chicken breasts into cubes instead of keeping them whole.
  • You can make it with cooked chicken leftovers or rotisserie chicken that you’ve previously shredded. Adjust baking time to 10 or 15 minutes.
  • Do not skimp on seasoning; otherwise, the dish can end up pretty bland with cream and spinach. Keep it spicy!
  • Baking time can vary depending on the size of your chicken breast and your oven. You can always slice the chicken breasts horizontally to make them thinner.
  • You can top the chicken casserole with crispy bacon bits for adding some crunch!

What to serve with the creamy chicken breast bake?

In order to stay gluten-free and low-carb, we recommend you serve the chicken bake with a side of steamed cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles. The creamy chicken bake will be also delicious served on top of rice, bulgur, or orzo pasta.

How and how long to store the chicken breast bake leftovers?

You can keep the leftovers for up to 2 days in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Freeze individual portions of the creamy chicken breast bake in Ziploc bags for up to 1 month.
