Chicken & Spinach Strata

Chicken & Spinach Strata Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

Yesterday I made a Shooter Sandwich and I wasn't entirely sure what to do with all of the leftover bread I was about to have. Luckily, I remembered a post I made a few months back for chicken bacon strata and decided making another, with a few twists and turns, would be the best way to use it up!

It's perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (or all three!) Plus it's somewhat healthy with all of those spinach and veggies. Or maybe I'm just telling myself that, but shhhhhh.

This recipe used all of the leftover ingredients from the shooter sandwich and yet it tasted almost completely different than the sandwich did! It was like an inside-out and backwards sandwich strata that I actually can't wait to make again.

Just mix together the bread, onions, mushrooms, peppers, chicken, and spinach in a large bowl.

Then spray a glass bread pan and fill it up with the breading.

Then pour the cream and eggs over the top, and make sure everything gets covered! Finally, arrange the tomato slices and butter on the top, and cover with foil. Refrigerate overnight (or at least a few hours to let the bread soak up as much of the eggs and cream it can) and you've got breakfast ready for the morning.

When ready to bake, pop into the oven at 375°F for 30-40 minutes or until the sides are bubbling and the top is toasted. It's practically perfect, in every way!
