Chicken and Spinach Bake

Diana Rattray
In this easy chicken and spinach bake, the chicken breasts are simply baked on a bed of spinach with a tomato and green onion topping. Feel free to use your own favorite seasoning salt blend instead of the Cajun or Creole seasonings.


  • 8 to 12 ounces fresh chopped or baby spinach, cleaned
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 4 chicken breast halves, boneless, pounded slightly to even thickness
  • Creole or Cajun seasoning blend or other blend
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 4 green onions, with green, sliced


Heat oven to 350°. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish or spray with cooking spray. Put spinach in the baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add chicken broth. Sprinkle chicken with seasoning blend, salt, and pepper; arrange over the spinach. Sprinkle with the diced tomato and green onion. Cover the baking dish with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer, or until chicken is cooked through.
Serves 4.

Might have a Husband after cooking this dish!, Member eml.1

This recipe was easy and fantastic! My beau was BEGGING me for the recipe, and from being from the upper echelon in another country, he has a very experienced palate. (me, not so much :) What I did: I sprinkled the spinach with salt & pepper, tossed the leaves a little bit, and did it again. I always use more pepper than salt. I cut the suggested chicken broth down A FOURTH of a cup-per suggestions on the review page, I used THINLY cut chicken breasts (probably helped with tasting more of the flavor) and I used two types of Cajun seasoning. One was extra spicy, and I put a good amount on each. Oh yes. during the last 3 minutes of baking, I added a few slices of real provolone cheese. I LOVE it because you don't have to fret about time to make a vegetable side; it cooks all at once!
