1 cup Mozzarella cheese, finely shredded
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 pkg (6 oz.) frozen baby spinach, thawed and drained
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 pie shell
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a piece of parchment paper or foil on a baking dish. Spray with cooking spray. Lay out the pie shell. Spread the cream cheese over the crust up to about 1” from the edge. In a pan saute spinach and garlic until the spinach is wilted, draining completely. In a large bowl combine spinach, chicken and mozzarella cheese. Place on half of the pie shell. Fold over and seal the edges with the tongs of a fork. Bake 15-20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and cheese inside has melted. Sprinkle with more cheese if desired.
Comments: I know that the last few recipes have been chicken and spinach but there is a reason. I have a medical problem that forbids me from eating any greens except spinach. So, I'm working on different variations using the spinach. I promise to try making something with pork and even beef in the near future.
Anyway, this dish was so easy to make and boy was it delicious! I actually had some of the mixture left over that I'll be putting in crescent rolls. I have no doubt that version will be delicious too. Give this one a try. You'll love it.
