Swiss, Chicken and Spinach Muffins Recipe



I had quite a bit of Spinach leftover from the Pasta Fresca recipe I posted last week, so I decided to whip up these tasty muffins for dinner earlier this week. Wow, they turned out so good! The combination of ingredients were amazing and you could serve this as dinner or also as an appetizer! It would be so easy to change up the ingredients as well according to what you have on hand. I just love using a tube of biscuits for everything lately! Check out my Mini Garlic Monkey Bread or Farmhouse BBQ muffins for some other great biscuit ideas! Enjoy!!

What you need:
2 c. cooked chicken, cut into small pieces
3 c. raw baby spinach
1 1/2 c. fresh white mushrooms, sliced
1/2 c. shredded swiss cheese, plus more for topping
1- 7.5 oz. tube of biscuits
olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Separate biscuits and flatten each one into a 5 inch circle. Place one biscuit in each muffin cup in the muffin pan. (you will have 10 total, not 12)

In a medium skillet, saute spinach, mushrooms, seasoned with salt and pepper, in some olive oil until spinach starts to wilt. Add chicken and saute for a couple more minutes. remove from heat and mix in the swiss cheese. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the chicken and spinach mixture into each biscuit and top with a sprinkle more of the swiss. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

  4. I just tried it and yum! yum! I took out the mushrooms cause none of my family likes them and I added twice the cheese and 1/2 cup more of the spinach! I also had small biscuits so I used 2 in each muffin. I am gonna use smaller muffin pans and make them bite size for my next party! Thanks for the awesome recipe. Oh and for desert I decided to go with same idea, I made a yummy apple pie filling (apples, apple juice, maple syrup, brown sugar, and cinnamon)and used the biscuits as crust. It was a great meal that my whole family loved and asked me to make again!
