Spinach Turkey/Chicken (Ispanakli Hindi/Tavuk)

2 turkey/chicken breasts
1 lb spinach (also canned/frozen can be used)
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup mozzarella/cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tsp salt to taste
½ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
Bechamel Sauce:
2 cups milk
2 tbsp flour
4-5 tbsp butter
1 egg, beaten
½ tsp salt to taste

Boil turkey/chicken breasts in salty water. Let it cool and then cut it into small pieces. Grease a Pyrex or oven dish and place turkey/chicken over the bottom.
Meanwhile wash spinach, drain and chop (I’ve used canned spinach). In a skillet, sauté onions and spinach with olive oil. Add salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. After that, spread it over the turkey.
In a pot, prepare the bechamel sauce (click for the béchamel sauce recipe). Stir in half of the shredded cheese. And then, pour it over the spinach. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and cook in a 400F (200 C) oven, till the surface turns to a light brown color (30-40 minutes).
Serve Spinach Turkey/Chicken warm.
ENJOY
