Spinach & Almond Topped Chicken

Do you like spinach dip?

Do you like chicken?

Do you like quick, easy, classic and delicious?

If you answered yes to those 3 ‘questions’ ooo baby, do I have a recipe for y’all.

Spinach & Almond Topped Chicken

This is the 3rd and final recipe for the Hellmann’s Chicken Change Up Program

The first two recipes are here:

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders

Baked Chicken with Cream Sauce

This recipe actually surprised me.

The theme for this challenge/recipe is a Twist on a Classic and I can’t tell y’all the number of times that I’ve been at a stuffy bridal/wedding/baby shower or luncheon with my Granny and seen spinach or almond crusted chicken and shuddered when the dishes have been served.

This is not your Granny’s stuffy, club, predictable, BLAH chicken.

This is juicy, delicious baked chicken that tastes like it’s been topped with your very favorite spinach dip with a crunch.

This is easy.

This is delicious.

What more could you want?

Oh – that your kids will eat it?

Both my kids had this for dinner tonight and BOTH have requested it for their lunches tomorrow.

The only things that I changed from the original recipe was to double it for topping and I think I’d add a dash of garlic powder.

    Just popped a batch of this in the oven! Traded the mayo for some whole grain Dijon mustard and added a touch of crushed red pepper flakes cause I like a little spice :) Can’t wait to try it… Smells great!!
