At over 500 calories and 47g of protein per serving, this casserole definitely makes for one hearty and filling meal. Still, you may want to add a side dish to make it a bit more satisfying. We suggest serving it with cauliflower rice or low-carb buns. It also goes well with a glass of yogurt.

About the ingredients

This casserole is best made with chicken breasts that were cooked in a skillet. However, you can also use meat from other parts of chicken and even turkey meat. Another alternative is to use cheddar instead of mozzarella cheese and fresh baby spinach instead frozen spinach.
