[Manic Mondays] Chicken-Kale Casserole

Karen, she’s my boss at the shoe store/ We sell to the rich on Madison Avenue/ I come in late from Brooklyn on the F train/ Karen says “honey, make this your last time”

Better late than carrying the blogosphere’s baby.  What?

This is a recipe that my sister liked a lot that I made up.  You could also substitute turkey for the chicken and use whatever leftover veggies you have from Thanksgiving instead of the veggies I used.

Chicken-Kale Casserole

1/2 box pasta, cooked and drained

3 cups kale chopped finely

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 onion, diced

4 cloves garlic, diced

1 package mushrooms, sliced

1 small package cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon Smoked Paprika

Montreal Chicken Seasoning (to taste)

1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese

2 boneless skinless chicken thighs, diced and seasoned with salt and pepper

1 cup breadcrumbs

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 large casserole dish

Preheat the oven to 425.  Put the lemon juice, wine, seasonings and cream cheese in the casserole dish.  Mix.  Add in everything else except the breadcrumbs, olive oil and 1/4 cup of the swiss cheese.  Mix until well combined.  Put the rest of the cheese on top.  Mix the olive oil and breadcrumbs together.  Put on top.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Enjoy!
