Baked Chicken with Spinach and Mushroom

Best part about this dish – it is mostly wash, assemble and bake and makes for yummy leftover recipes as well. 

You can use chicken breasts – in which case you need to pound them to an even thickness before layering.

I have used chicken strips as they are anyways thin. 

I cook this in a big dish with almost 800 gms of chicken strips so that the next day I can use it in grilled sandwiches or chop it up and add to a rich vegetable broth.

You may adjust the ingredients to suit your requirements.
