Easy Low Carb Mexican Chicken Casserole

Easy Low Carb Mexican Chicken Casserole

This recipe has really shocked me by becoming THE most popular recipe on my blog. I almost didnt post it because it was so basic, but its essentially turned into a blueprint for people to personalize with their own additions and spices. Read the comments from my website ! Thats where all sorts of inspiration is to make this your own. I love the easy, and I had a lot of chicken, so I decided to make up an easylow carb Mexican chicken casserole. All the Mexican casserole recipes I was looking to adapt included chips or Tortilla layers. I did experiment with making a low carb tortilla, but it didnt do well in the bottom of the casserole dish. It turned all soggy-mush. However, I was pleased with how the topping part of this casserole came out, so I adjusted the recipe to just include that. Hope you like it! I cooked up some chicken. Added tomatoes and green chilies. Dotting with bits of cream cheese. Popped in the oven to bake until its nice and browning around the edges. Note: Per comments, cut down or omit chicken base if yours has much salt. Dee said hers turned out way too salty! Continue reading >>

Make a healthy fritatta packed with vegetables.Photo Credit: Jupiterimages/Comstock/Getty Images Healthy eating for diabetes involves more than just cutting carbohydrates. Moderating carbohydrate intake is important, but so is increasing intake of fruits and vegetables, decreasing sodium, avoiding saturated and trans fats and including fiber-rich whole grains. Breakfast egg casseroles -- lightened up to avoid cream, full-fat cheese and fatty meats -- fit well into a diabetes-friendly diet and most sensible eating plans. Work with your health care provider to come up with a dietary plan that meets your needs and complements your medication regimen. Egg casserole with sausage and cheese is a brunch favorite, but traditional recipes are high in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. To make a healthier version that tastes just as good, use turkey sausage instead of pork, half whole eggs and half egg whites or low-cholesterol egg substitute, and reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese. If the recipe includes bread cubes, use fewer than called for and substitute soft whole-wheat bread for white sandwich bread. To boost flavor without an overload of salt, add zesty seasonings such as dry mustard, black and cayenne pepper, smoked or sweet paprika and a sprinkling of fresh herbs. To make a high-protein quiche with moderate amounts of fat and carbohydrates, dispense with the crust and bake the quiche in a greased casserole dish. Use egg substitute or a mixture of whole eggs and Continue reading >>

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole Low Carb, Keto, Thm S

This was a hit with my family. I wasnt sure if the kids would like the swiss cheese (honestly, Im not a huge swiss cheese fan) but it worked so well with this flavor combination there were no complaints. Here is a little history on this iconic dish (thank you, Wikipedia ): A cordon bleu or schnitzel cordon bleu is a dish of meat wrapped around cheese (or with cheese filling), then breaded and pan-fried or deep-fried. (Veal) cordon bleu is made of veal pounded thin and wrapped around a slice of ham and a slice of cheese, breaded, and then pan fried or baked . [1] For chicken cordon bleu chicken breast is used instead of veal. [2] Ham cordon bleu is ham stuffed with mushrooms and cheese. [3] The origins of cordon bleu as a schnitzel filled with cheese are in Switzerland, probably about the 1940s, first mentioned in a cookbook from 1949. The earliest reference to chicken cordon bleu in The New York Times is dated to 1967, while similar veal recipes are found from at least 1955.
