The Mediterranean Diet's High-Protein Casseroles

By Robert J. Matthews

Lemon-Garlic Chicken Casserole

For a complete supper in one pot, this chicken and rice casserole has protein, fiber from brown rice and broccoli. 

Chicken thighs are tender and meaty, but you may use chicken breast.

Quick Shrimp Enchilada Bake

Some shrimp enchiladas include 50 grams of fat per serving due to their high cheese, butter, and sour cream content. 

Our version features bright flavor, half the calories and 6 grams of fat per serving, and precooked peeled shrimp for weekday dinners. 

Cheeseburger Casserole

This family-friendly cheeseburger casserole has all the fixings for a classic cheeseburger.

Any pasta in your pantry will work with this warm dinner, but rotini spaghetti brings out the flavors. 

Chicken & White Bean Casserole

A crispy phyllo coating and creamy feta-and-spinach filling make this spanakopita delightful. 

White beans like cannellini, garbanzo, and navy work well.
