SCD Spinach & Chicken Casserole

In my pre-SCD days I used to love a good casserole.  I loved casseroles that were creamy, cheesy, full of noodles and all around not healthy yumminess. For my last grocery shopping order I received a huge bunch of spinach and I needed to find a way to not let any of it go to waste.  I came up with a Spinach & Chicken Casserole. It is creamy, cheesy, and I used the Butter Biscuit recipe from Comfy Belly for the top of it. My husband actually liked it and he rarely says that my SCD food is good. I thought I used too much garlic, but he did not think so. Overall, I would make this again.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of shredded or diced chicken
  • 1 cup of Dripped SCD yogurt

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic (I may use 1 next time)
  • 1 tsp of dried parsley
    • Notes: I dry my own herbs, if you use commercial herbs, make sure they are SCD legal. I think the Penzy brand is legal.

  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together, chicken, yogurt, cheese, spinach, onion, garlic, pepper, mustard, salt
  3. Bake for 10 minutes the take out of the oven.
  4. While it is baking, mix together one recipe of Comfy Belly’s Butter Biscuit recipe.
  5. Roll out the biscuit recipe and cut out he biscuits. I always like to use cute cookie cutters.
  6. Put the biscuits on top of the the chicken mixture and then bake according to the biscuit recipe, 12 minutes.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Both my husband and I enjoyed this recipe. It did not pass the 4 year old test. Rarely anything SCD legal does.
