Chicken, Kale, and Mozzarella Bake

25 Jun

We love quiche.
We love meal prepping.
And we love sharing our latest recipes with you.

This one came about via inspiration from Pinterest after we bought ground chicken for a really great price but had absolutely no idea what to do with it. We can never turn down a great deal, so we bought the ground chicken and decided we would figure out what to do with it later. Later turned into this: a chicken, kale, and mozzarella bake. We split ours into six servings, but you could probably make it into a lot more (8-9) if you would like!

Ingredients:
16 oz of fresh ground chicken
2 cups of kale plus baby spinach mix
4 green onions, chopped
2 tsp olive oil
1 cup of shredded Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese (any would work, but this is what we used)
6 large eggs
2 egg whites

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9×12 glass pan with coconut oil spray.
Cook ground chicken according to package directions. After completed, spread chicken on the bottom of the pan.
Saute kale and spinach until slightly wilted. Add to pan on top of the chicken.
Chop green onions and add to the pan on top of the kale and spinach.
Spread mozzarella cheese on top of the other ingredients in the pan.
Crack six eggs, mix in the two egg whites, season with salt and pepper, and then pour the mixture into the pan. Be sure the eggs coat all of the ingredients.
Bake for 30-35 minutes.

We divided it into 6 huge pieces and made different variations of salads with it. We ended up giving the last 2 pieces to our mom because she loved it so much! She made a salad and sent us a picture! We were so proud!

Spinach, roasted sweet potatoes, and red beets!

Now go preheat your oven, grab some eggs, and whip up your own fabulous quiche.

    Lovely recipe. Great with some nice crusty bread, or bruschetta maybe 🙂

      We love the idea of pairing fresh bruschetta with it! It would also be perfect with a big piece of good bread, but you can never go wrong with some good looking bread!
