Creamy Chicken and Spinach Rice

This was a quick dinner to make – and while kind of trashy due to a few processed foods used was tasty. Sometimes I am OK with cheating! A momma has to do what she can!

Creamy Chicken and Spinach Rice


  • ½ cup roasted red pepper Italian dressing
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • 12.5 ounce can chicken breast, drained
  • 3 cups lower sodium chicken broth
  • 4 ounces lower fat cream cheese
  • 3 cups instant rice
  • 6 ounce package fresh spinach, chopped
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese


In a large skillet over medium heat add the dressing and cook the onion in it till tender. Add the chicken, broth and cream cheese, bring to a boil. Add the rice, stir in and turn off the heat. Let sit for 10 minutes, take off the lid, add the spinach on top and cover, let sit for 5 minutes to wilt. Stir in the spinach and the Parmesan cheese.

Serves 4.



  1. I think we’ll sympathise and let you cheat! Looks yummy.

  2. If it gives you 5 more minutes to yourself its worth it!

  3. “trashy”…you crack me up!
