Mini Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken Casserole

Talk about delicious wrapped into an individual little portion for everyone!!! So I love everything Mediterranean food wise. And this is no different. I came up with this because I love stuffed chicken but figured it would be more fun to have individualized!

12-16 oz of diced chicken
2 oz crumbled feta cheese
3 button mushrooms – finely chopped
1/4 onion diced
1 clove garlic
2 cups spinach – sauteed
1/4 cup + 2 T panko bread crumbs
Spray butter
2 ramekins

preheat oven to 350 degrees

-Saute spinach in oil with garlic, salt and pepper until wilted
-While that is cooking mix together in a bowl the feta, mushrooms, onion, pepper and 2T panko.
-Once spinach is wilted add to the mixture.
-Spray ramekins with non stick cooking spray
-Salt and pepper the chicken
-place 3-4 oz of diced chicken in the bottom of the ramekin
-add a layer of the filling
-add another 3-4 oz of diced chicken on top
-top with a couple tablespoons of panko bread crumbs
-Spray the top with a few sprays of spray butter (this will give it a little a nice golden brown)

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until nice and golden brown all over on top!

Let cool for a few minutes and ENJOY!

Oh and if you have any filling left over save it! It makes a great breakfast burrito with some eggs and white American cheese mixed in OR a delicious little vegetarian lunch wrap!

Variations

The great thing about this recipe is you can add ingredients that you love! If I had kalamata olives I would have added those, sun dried tomatoes also work great and even some chopped bacon. If you want a little more of a creamy sauce you can add in 2 T of nonfat greek yogurt or sour cream into your filling.

If you preferred an Italian version use this filling –
4 T marinara sauce
2T panko bread crumbs
1 handful basil – wilted in garlic salt and pepper
2 oz mozzarella cheese

and for an Italian topping
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1 T parmesan cheese
spray butter

Bake and assemble the same way!
