14 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 cups milk

1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted


Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly butter a 9x13-inch casserole. Line with uncooked spinach. Add chicken. Set aside.

Make sauce by melting cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, milk, seasonings, and 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese. (Reserve 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese for bread crumb mixture.) Blend over low heat until smooth.

Fun Fact: The name Colosseum has long been believed to be derived from a colossal statue of Nero (which was named after one of the original ancient wonders, the Colossus of Rhodes). Built in the years 72–80 AD, the outer walls of the Roman Colosseum were held together without mortar by 300 tons of iron clamps. It is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering to ever exist. Modern coliseums are modeled after it.
