Directions

1. To prepare the spinach chicken casserole: Add olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes into a Ziplock bag along with 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Seal the bag and shake until mixed. Add the chicken breasts, seal, and massage so the chicken breasts are covered in the marinade, set aside for 10-15 minutes on the counter while you prep the remaining ingredients. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400ºF (200°C).

2. Quickly wilt the spinach in a skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil and set aside.

3. Arrange chicken breasts drained from the marinade in a baking dish. Spread the softened cream cheese over the chicken breasts and lay spinach on top of the cream cheese. Finally, sprinkle mozzarella over the top.

4. Bake the spinach chicken casserole for 20-30 minutes. Chicken casserole is done when cooked to an internal temperature of 165˚F (75°C). Serve the spinach chicken casserole warm with a side of cauliflower rice, or baked veggies. Enjoy!

Tips for the Spinach Chicken breasts Casserole Recipe

  • You can cut the chicken breasts into cubes to help the marinade coat the chicken deeper, and speed up the baking time of the casserole.
  • Freeze individual portions of the spinach chicken breasts casserole so you have a comforting dinner for evenings when you don’t feel like cooking from scratch.

What other readers say about this chicken breasts casserole recipe

“One of my new favorite ways to eat chicken. Have made quite a few times recently. It’s so good and easy!” – Brittani

“Phenomenal!!! I omitted the red pepper bc I don’t like spicy but otherwise, it was amazing!!!” – Stephanie

“Very good and pretty quick and easy to make. My husband said it might be his favorite chicken dish, and he does not like chicken. I will definitely make this again and will probably sauté some mushrooms with the spinach.” – Tiffany

“Soooo good, and sooo easy. I just mixed a small jar of pesto with a block of softened cream cheese, then mixed in some torn fresh spinach. Smother the salt and peppered chicken breasts then sprinkle with shredded mozzarella. 375 for 40mins (they were fat breasts). Yum!” – Mel

    i used thick tzatziki in place of cream cheese and it was a hit!!

  • Donna

    2021-09-12 18:38:44

    Made this today. Served it over a bed of spaghetti squash. Cooked regular spaghetti for my husband, served his over buttered spaghetti. It was delicious! Definitely something I will cook again.

  • Lauren

    2021-07-16 20:40:02

    I’d rate this 4 out of 5 stars. Pretty good for a simple chicken dinner. Paired well with roasted asparagus and will make rolls to pair next time, too.

  • Gillian

    2021-07-05 03:16:20

    Can this be prepared before cooking

  • Christa

    2021-06-12 21:10:58

    I added a packet of Knorr Vegetable mix and Mayo or sour cream to the cream cheese. It was delicious and flavorful. I call it spinach dip chicken.

  • Rose

    2021-05-16 17:05:21

    We loved this. I always add extra spices so I tripled the spices except hot peppers. It was delicious. My husband loved it and couldn’t believe it was healthy!

  • Liz

    This is fantastic! I'm eating it right now and I couldn't wait to leave a review. No need to change anything. It's perfect! I'll be making this again.

  • Donna

    2021-04-02 09:48:10

    This was so good! I had a mix of boneless chicken thighs and breasts and chopped into chunks. I also added sliced mushrooms. This came out with the most savory broth! YUM!

  • Rayyan

    We loved this and my picky teenager ate every bite.

  • Ann

    2021-03-21 16:56:46

    My family loves this. We changed it up a bit by adding smoked paprika to the marinade. A ton more garlic throughout the dish (marinade and spinach with minced, and the Shredded cheeses with a little garlic powder). Changed the Shredded cheese to havarti and fresh parm. So delicious! Thank you!

  • Gisele

    2021-03-20 16:35:35

    Very easy delicious and filling. I seasoned my chicken my own way, as an African we prefer stronger and hotter flavors but the end result was the same!!!

  • Nancy

    2021-03-16 23:42:17

    I made this recipe this evening. My husband and I love it! Deep cheese flavor. Very satisfying!! Thank You for making these recipes so easily accessible. Will be trying many more of your recipes.

  • Carmen

    2021-03-14 14:08:09

    I made this last night and it was delicious. My husband loved it. I used an Sargento Aged Italian cheese blend because I didn't have mozzarella. Definitely will make it again.

  • Chris

    2021-03-04 11:34:53

    This is the best and prettiest meal I think I make now. It’s one of my go to recipes for company because it’s easy, delicious and makes a pretty presentation on the dinner plate. I added store bought pesto to the cream cheese which really gives the dish a fabulous flavor.

  • Crystal

    2021-03-01 18:52:50

    Omg made this tonight, and wow it is delicious!!! My husband told me I HAVE to make it again :)

  • Cammie

    2021-02-17 20:40:39

    I think this is my husbands and my favorite chicken recipe! So delicious and easy!

  • Carol

    2021-02-14 21:55:59

    This chicken casserole was very tasty and will make again. The chicken was very tender and moist. I added provolone cheese over the spinach the topped off with the mozzarella. I am currently eating a low carb diet and being able to prepare a tasty dish to add to my rotation is welcome.

  • Joyce

    2021-02-12 11:52:59

    We really loved this chicken dish. I cooked it 25 minutes and everything was nice a brown and the cheese was very melted. I think I will sprinkle some fried onions on top next time I make it.

  • Valerie

    2021-02-07 17:06:49

    I let the chicken cook for about 10 mins before putting the cream cheese, mozzarella or spinach on it. Otherwise, the cheese would have been burnt. Very tasty recipe. I’ve made a few times 😊

  • Laurie

    2021-01-30 19:19:40

    Very good and super easy. My husband and I thought the cream cheese was a bit too much so I will probably use half the amount next time.

  • Anita Santana

    2021-01-28 11:52:08

    Loved this recipe. I don't necessarily do keto but found many of the recipes here look yummy as well as are pretty easy to cook. I may try Ricotta cheese instead of cream cheese next time. It might not handle the time in the oven so I might brown the breasts in a skillet prior to the oven.

  • Tonia

    2021-01-25 02:16:37

    I just made this with a side of frozen sweet potato and cauliflower rice. It is truly a simple and delicious dish.

  • @4orangecrush

    2021-01-22 17:38:22

    I made this with frozen spinach and enjoyed it with a bit of pesto on the side. Very good for such an easy recipe.

  • Christine Peters

    2021-01-18 22:13:15

    Excellent recipe with no complaints and many compliments. Definitely a make again dish.

  • Clarita

    2021-01-14 08:21:25

    Awesome! I added Dijon to the marinade.

  • DeAnn

    2021-01-13 21:16:58

    Wasn't my favorite. The combination of the cream cheese with the spinach wasn't a great flavor combination.. Wish I would have just made chicken marsala.

  • Teresa Darrow

    2021-01-10 21:02:20

    I used ricotta instead of cream cheese - that's what I had on hand... We'll see... But it sounds delicious!

  • Melissa

    2021-01-07 12:33:43

    This was super yummy. I added artichokes. Will make again for sure.

  • Ant

    2021-01-03 13:07:26

    Absolutely delicious! I bacon wrapped the chicken and it's out of this world! Great recipe

  • Shannon

    2020-12-13 20:25:55

    Delicious! This will be a weekly staple. I doubled the garlic, and the spinach though.

  • Jennifer

    2020-12-04 06:33:20

    Delicious! I was looking for an easy keto dinner dish. I didn’t wilt the spinach out of pure laziness so my presentation was a little messy but the taste was superb.

  • Rachel Ybarra

    2020-11-07 15:11:08

    Looks 👀so Good 😋☺

  • Columbine6

    2020-11-05 19:31:21

    I modified the recipe slightly to accommodate my vegetarian diet. I also used frozen chopped spinach in lieu of fresh. It turned out great and I will definitely make it again.
