This is a very simple and attractive dish. Fresh Parmesan cheese adds a good flavor to this recipe.

What you'll need

  • 2 tbsp. unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 3/4 cup fat-free chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 pkg. (10 ounces each) frozen spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed
  • 1 1/2 lb skinless, boneless, chicken breasts, cut into strips


  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Shake flour with milk in a covered container to prevent lumps. Mix flour mixture with chicken broth in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until thickened. Take off heat and stir in a Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  • Step 2
    Mix spinach with 1/2 of the sauce and spread in a 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange chicken over spinach. Pour remainder of sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with additional nutmeg.
  • Step 3
    Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
