A savory spin on the classic pancakes, stacked with grilled chicken, spinach, and caramelized onions.


  • 2 cups of whole grain flour

  • 1 1/2 cups of milk

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup of grilled chicken, sliced

  • 1 cup of wilted spinach

  • 1/2 cup of caramelized onions

  • 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Prepare the filling by heating the grilled chicken, wilted spinach, and caramelized onions together in a pan.
  • In a separate bowl, mix Greek yogurt with lemon juice, salt, and pepper to create a tangy sauce.
  • Assemble the pancake stack by placing a pancake on a plate, then adding a layer of the chicken-spinach-onion mixture, and a drizzle of the Greek yogurt sauce.
  • Repeat the layering process until all the pancakes and filling are used.
  • Serve the pancake stack warm.


  • Feel free to add additional veggies to the filling, such as bell peppers or mushrooms.
  • For a vegetarian option, replace the chicken with tofu or chickpeas.
  • Store any leftover pancake stacks in the fridge and reheat in the oven for best results.

The “No, It’s Not Just Dessert!” Pancake Stack works well as a standalone meal given its balance of protein, vegetables, and carbohydrates. But if you’re looking to create a fuller spread, it pairs beautifully with a fresh fruit salad or a side of crispy hash browns for a more brunch-like feel. For a dinner setting, consider serving it with a light soup or a mixed greens salad to round out the meal. And, of course, a chilled glass of your favorite white wine or a refreshing lemonade would be a lovely accompaniment.
