  • 1/2 cup organic whole milk cottage cheese
  • 3/4 cup organic cultured sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella, preferably organic – divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 cups fresh organic spinach

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 1 1/2 qt. casserole dish with healthy fat of choice and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add cooked shredded chicken, healthy fat of choice, cottage cheese and sour cream. Give it a quick stir to combine. Add 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, parsley, sea salt, garlic, thyme, lemon juice and lemon zest. Stir until fully combined and evenly distributed. Gently fold in the spinach and artichoke hearts just until combined. Pour mixture into the greased casserole dish and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese over the top of the casserole. Bake at 375 degrees F for 40-50 minutes, or until the cheesy top is lightly golden brown. Let the casserole sit for 10 minutes before serving.
