Turkey Spinach Bake

 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)
olive oil
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...
