Creamy Baked Spinach Chicken. Tender seared chicken is smothered in cheese and spinach then baked to perfection. It’s flavorful, decadent, and hearty while also being low-carb and gluten-free!

I like to serve this with Blistered Tomatoes or Glazed Carrots.

Chicken with cheese and spinach


Although this main dish chicken recipe takes 30ish minutes to make, it takes very little hands-on time. Seriously, all you do is place the chicken breasts in an oven-safe pan, mix the other ingredients, and spread it over the chicken.

Make your side dishes while it’s in the oven and you have an easy, delicious meal. 

This chicken is also good for meal prep. I sometimes double the recipe and we take it for lunch the next day.

I always prefer fresh over canned or frozen when fresh is available. Therefore, yes, you can use fresh spinach. I have tried both of the following methods when I used fresh spinach and they were both good. 

  1. First, you can steam the spinach a few minutes to wilt it. Then simply stir it into the other ingredients and proceed with the recipe as written.
  2. As well, you can stir the fresh spinach (after it is washed & dried) straight into the cheese mixture. It’s a little more difficult to stir in without wilting it first, but it cooks just fine.


As always, store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They’ll keep 4 days this way.

  1. If using frozen, do I need to thaw the spinach first and try to get as much moisture out of the spinach as possible before stirring in?

  2. 5 stars
    This spinach chicken is so easy and tasty. Best of all I always have these ingredients on hand.

  3. 5 stars
    Absolutely unreal! This creamy spinach coating melts and hugs the chicken, keeping it nice and moist. The herbs with the feta and Parmesan create extraordinary flavor. Love, love, love this chicken!
