Zesty Chicken Spinach Casserole

Bunches of spinach in a Nash box

We’ve just started harvesting beautiful bunches of spinach! Spinach is a great addition to any casserole for extra flavor, color, and nutrients.

9 ounces water chestnuts, drained
2 ounces pimento olives, diced
1 large onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
4 cooked skinless chicken breasts, excess fat removed, and chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in the whole wheat flour, add skim milk and chicken broth, and cook until thickened.

Mix in whole wheat noodles, sour cream/yogurt, lemon juice, spinach, mushrooms, water chestnuts, pimentos, onion, celery, seasoned salt, cayenne, paprika, and pepper.

In a greased 4-quart baking dish, alternate layers of noodle mixture and chicken. Top with grated cheese and bake 30 minutes.
