This is one of my favorite Martha Stewart recipes! A great way to use leftover chicken or turkey, a creamy sauce with fresh spinach, crunchy chunks of toasty bread on top...YUM
Comfort food on a gloomy weeknight!Chicken (or turkey) Spinach Bake
2 c. torn french bread (I had ciabatta this time)
4 c. flat leaf spinach
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c. white wine (or chicken broth)
2 T flour
1 1/2 c. half and half
1/2 t fresh lemon juice
1 c. cooked and shredded chicken or turkey
Preheat the oven to 450. Toss bread pieces with olive oil (a couple tablespoons worth) and set aside. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a skillet, add spinach and cook til wilted. Set in a colander to drain and cool. Cook onion and garlic in the pan about 8 minutes. Add wine and cook 5 minutes. Add flour and stir, then whisk in the half and half, and lemon. Bring to a boil. Add the spinach and chicken to the pan and remove from heat.
Place it in a greased casserole dish.
Top with the chunks of torn bread, and bake 10 minutes.
Settle in with a warm plate of delish, a glass of that wine, and your cooking shows on PBS...
