This is my own variation of a dish my mom passed down to me. It can be used with turkey, too... which makes it perfect for THANKSGIVING leftovers!!! I have made this several different ways so please read the extra note at the bottom of the directions. This is my kind of comfort food!

    NOTE: I have made this recipe several different ways, and here are some variations that you may prefer. You can use fresh spinach, but add 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the mix for best results. Works great with your leftover Thxgvg turkey. Give it a try! Use as much or as little meat as you like. 1/2 lb is a guesstimate. My husband likes "more meat" so sometimes I use 3 chicken breasts instead of 2. This is a great casserole to whip up for friends or family when they're not able to take the time to make homemade meals. It reheats well so you can fully cook it, or just refrigerate the mixture in a baking dish and give them directions for cooking. Please try my recipe and share your comments!
