As a mom, I have become more and more fond of casseroles! Most of the time you just dump everything together give it a little stir and its good to go. What could be better than that?!

 

This recipe is similar and creates so much amazing flavor from the spinach and pepper. Oh, and did I mention your kids probably won’t even be able to tell they are eating some healthy leafy greens? You can thank me later!

 

This recipe serves 4 but it can easily be doubled and even make amazing leftovers for the next day. Honestly, that might be my favorite part of casseroles is the leftovers!

Let’s get cooking this delicious chicken with roasted red peppers and spinach recipe!

To begin, start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

boneless, skinless chicken breasts seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning

Then, season the boneless chicken breasts with the salt, pepper, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning. After they have been seasoned move them to a greased 9×13 baking pan.

Next, prepare the spinach by washing it and removing all of the stems. Once that is done, using a medium skillet, saute the spinach with oil over medium heat until the spinach becomes slightly wilted. 

A mixture of wilted spinach, cheeses, and roasted red peppers

Then, in a small mixing bowl, add the spinach, cream cheese, roasted red peppers, and mozzarella cheese. Mix everything up until the ingredients are well combined. 

Now, take the cream cheese and peppers mixture and spread it evenly over top of the chicken breasts. Make sure to cover all of the chicken. 

Once that is done, move the chicken breasts covered in the wonderful cream cheese spread and bake it at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked all the way through and the cream cheese spread begins to turn slightly brown.

 

Then, just remove them from the oven, serve and enjoy!

    This was a beautiful dish. I wish I had taken a picture of it. Mine was even better looking than the pictures you posted. The top was delicious; however, the chicken itself had very little flavor. I think the chicken needs to be marinated or brined before putting the topping on. It also took a lot longer than the recipe suggested if you consider roasting and cutting up your own red pepper, taking the stems off the fresh spinach, and wilting the spinach. The mixture was a little stiff (although the heated spinach helped to melt it a little), so it spreading it evenly on the breasts took some time. When I make this again, I will use a simple marinade and perhaps use roasted red peppers from a jar.
