Cheesy Spinach & Chicken Bake, RA 120

11 Comments

A while back I shared how my friends and I started a freezer meal club.  I had a few people ask for the recipe and it is worth trying I guarantee.  I found the original recipe on Saving Money Living Life, but I cut out a step and it is just that much faster.  So I am sharing it here today.  This is a great freezer meal and it tastes wonderful!

      I’ve done both. I made two, one to bake for dinner and one for the freezer. For the frozen one, I thawed it for about an hour and then baked covered for about 35-40 minutes and then 15 – 20 minutes more or until hot and bubbly! Good Luck!
