Halal Keto chicken and spinach "lasagna"

Halal Keto chicken and spinach "lasagna"

Since starting the Keto diet I've been craving a good slice of lasagna and since pasta is a no, no!, I bring you the keto friendly version.

  • 4 Chicken breasts, 
  • 1 jar pasta sauce*
  •  1.5 cups of thawed, frozen spinach, drain and squeeze out excess water. 
  • 4oz cream cheese 
  • 1/5 cup of GreenLand Feta**
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella/ provolone mix cheese.
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons garlic paste***
  • season salt
    Preheat oven to 400F
    grease baking dish or cover in foil, pour sauce into the bottom of the dish.
    Season chicken breasts with season salt and half of garlic. 
    lay chicken in a single layer in the bottom of the dish on top of sauce.
    In a large mixing bowl, mix together cheeses, egg, spinach and remaining garlic.
    Spoon mixture over chicken breasts.
    bake uncovered 45 min or until chicken is cooked and cheese is lightly browned.

    * tomatoes have a load of sugar carbs,  if you're at your daily limit, you can omit the sauce and use diced tomatoes, still some carbs but not as much.
    ** if you can;t find GreenLand feta ( a creamy feta) you can use regular feta and a few teaspoons more cream cheese.
    *** Garlic, another one of those amazing things that can add unwanted carbs.
