Last night I made Chicken Rockefeller, and it was a hit! This meal is very easy, and if the chicken is pre-cooked (which ours was not), it would honestly be a ten minute meal.
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen spinach
1(8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese (can be light), softened
1 c. milk
1 c. shredded Monterey jack cheese
¼ tsp. garlic salt
½ c. shredded parmesan cheese, divided
2 c. cooked chicken, cubed
½ c. crushed cornflakes, if desired
Defrost spinach, drain well, and spread across bottom of small casserole dish. Spread cooked chicken on top. In bowl, combine cream cheese, milk, jack cheese, garlic salt, and ¼ cup of parmesan. Cook in microwave for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Heat long enough to melt cheeses. Pour over chicken. Top with remaining ¼ cup of parmesan and ½ cup crushed cornflakes. Place in microwave and cook for 6 minutes. Can brown top in broiler if desired.
My dear friend, Lauren, came over to help me cook and we had a lot of fun catching up over wine while we cooked. I love that my friendships and the way we spend time together evolves as we get older, and I am truly thankful for friends like her who I can share openly with….and who will touch raw chicken! Love you, La!
The Puppy Chow did not get made…but it’s on my “to-do” for tonight. Looking forward to munching on it during a movie night with Brian!
