One of my favorite types of food is Greek. I am 25% Greek and love that part of my heritage. My maternal grandfather was Greek and made delicious food. He worked as a chef for years, owned a pizzeria, and then worked again in the food industry later in life before retiring.
Growing up there was always lamb, roasted potatoes, and lots and lots of feta cheese. The saltiness of the feta adds so much flavor to any dish it is in.
I chose to use feta in this casserole to give it a Mediterranean flair. It is lighter than some of my other casseroles with the addition of spinach and by baking it on a bed of cauliflower rice.
I decided to layer this on top of cauliflower rice to force my children to eat an extra vegetable. Half kidding. I really just had a bag of steamable cauliflower crumbles from Costco I needed to use. I love having dinner bake in one dish so adding the cauliflower rice was a great way to squeeze in another veggie and bulk up this dish.
I hope you enjoy this Mediterranean Chicken & Spinach Casserole!
