Creamy Cheesy Spinach Stuffed Chicken Tray Bake – Tender Juicy Chicken Breasts with a Creamy Parmesan Spinach Stuffing all baked on one tray with Baby Yukon Gold Potatoes and Asparagus.
Can you tell I am loving tray bakes at the moment? I just love their simplicity and the fact I can add all ingredients onto one tray and be done.
Okay yes, we do parboil the potatoes using a saucepan, but hey that can quickly be washed up while this cooks in the oven.
Gotta love meals that don’t leave with heaps of different pots and pans at the end of a meal, right?
Low-Fat Cream Cheese? What is that?
Whenever you see me refer to cream cheese, I mean Philadelphia or a store brand variety. I do not and never will mean Quark.
Yes, I know Quark is syn free. but have you tasted it? There is nothing creamy about that ingredient what so ever and you risk ruining an amazing recipe if you skip my advice.
Okay, it works in some recipes, but never for a creamy flavoured dish. It’s sour tasting for one. Don’t compromise just for the sake of saving a couple of syns. Trust me!!

How can I add a 1/3 speed foods to this Creamy Cheesy Spinach Stuffed Chicken Tray Bake?
There are spinach and asparagus included in this recipe which all adds to your speed foods, but some additional green veggies of choice would be great too.
I love these Sauteed Garlic Brussel Sprouts another option would be to swap the potatoes out for some cubes of butternut squash – yum!!
