Having 1 huge baked chicken breast in my refrigerator the other night, I created a tasty Italian dish with it. With some spinach mushrooms, cheese and sauce this was simple as can be to make. This recipe is suitable for all phases of Atkins and Keto diets if the numbers will fit into your daily limit. Note: I use some of my homemade beef spaghetti sauce as that’s what I had available, but I didnt’ care for the beef in it, so I’m recommending you use a meatless sauce for this recipe and have calculated stats as though I used my favorite sauce, Lucini with basil in it.

10 oz. cooked chicken breast meat
8 oz. frozen whole leaf spinach
2 4-oz. cans sliced mushrooms, drained (omit if you don’t like)
1½ c. Lucini Spaghetti Sauce (or your favorite brand low-carb sauce)
2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
½ c. Parmesan grated cheese
½ tsp. dried mixed Italian seasonings or 1 T. fresh (your choice: basil, oregano, crushed fennel or any combination)
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a casserole baking dish lightly. Squeeze water out of the spinach and evenly place the uncooked spinach in the bottom of the dish. Tear chicken breast into bite-size pieces and spread it evenly on the spinach. Sprinkle half the Parmesan and half the mozzarella cheese on next. Drain and add the mushrooms next. Spoon on the spaghetti sauce and Italian seasonings. Finish off with the rest of the two cheeses. Bake at 350º for about 30 minutes. Serve with a nice green salad and perhaps your favorite low-carb bread or garlic bread.
