How to Make Keto Chicken Florentine Casserole
14 ounces shredded chicken
8 ounces chopped mushrooms (see notes)
9 ounces frozen spinach, thawed (see notes)
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375F.
Add the shredded chicken to a large bowl.
Then the mushrooms.
Squeeze all the water out of the spinach, then add to the bowl with the chicken and mushrooms.
Heat a saucepan to medium and melt the butter.
Sauté the garlic for about 20 seconds, careful not to brown!
Mix in the heavy cream.
Stir in the mascarpone cheese, until melted.
Add in the grated parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Turn off the heat and stir.
Pour the sauce over the bowl with the chicken, mushrooms and spinach.
Mix, then add 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese and stir until well combined.
Pour into a 9″ x 9″ casserole dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese over the top and bake for 25 minutes.
Turn the temperature up to 425F and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden.
Allow to cool slightly before serving. Store leftovers in the fridge for a few days or freeze.
Note: I used canned mushrooms in this recipe (something I rarely do), as a time-saver. Feel free to use fresh mushrooms, but be sure to sauté them first, then add them to the casserole.
The same is true of the spinach. I used frozen spinach, but you can certainly use fresh, sauté first and add to the casserole.
