Recipes for low carb lovin’ Chicken Broccoli Casserole and simple Creamed Spinach

Ok, not really, but they are really kick ass recipes. Mostly from my head, which is scary. I’ve never been much of a cook, more of a baker, I like the exact science of it, just throwing things together and hoping they taste good has always terrified me a bit. Lately though, I’ve thrown caution to the wind and tried it, so far, so good! I made a maple beer ham glaze that I’ve decided to hold off on posting until it’s perfected, but everything else is bad ass.

This¬† isn’t so much of a recipe, just an idea that turned out really good. I took one of those SteamFresh creamed spinach pouches, cooked it up in the microwave, added 1/2 cup of 4 cheese blend and 1/4 cup of bacon pieces. Heeeeelll yes. It was awesome. So I highly recommend that as an quick and easy low carb side dish.

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

  • 1 tub Philly Cooking Cream (I used Garlic)
  • 1 1/2 cups 4 cheese blend shredded cheese
  • 14-16oz broccoli- steamed (frozen is ok, just drain it first)
  • 1 package bacon pieces (real ones)
  • 1/4 cup flax meal (optional)
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 1 cup water (or chicken broth)
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

OK, cut up the chicken raw, then cook it in a skillet. In the meantime, steam the broccoli and mix everything else together in a pot, melting the cheese and making a sauce.¬† Mix it all together in a 9″x13″ casserole dish and put in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. I threw some extra cheese on top of mine and put it back for 5 mins to melt it. Came out great! I wish I took a picture… :doh: Next time! Enjoy!!!

And like anything I ever say or post or tell you, make it yours!!! Experiment and find out what works for you and what you like best! Don’t let my tastebuds rule yours ;)

    • I’m bringing my Maman’s mac-n-cheese. It’s no fail and the eiessat thing ever. One pack long macaroni, one block Kraft American cheese, 1 can evaporated milk. Cook noodles, pour in 9X11 casserole dish, shred cheese and stir into noodles, pour in evaporated milk. Bake in 350 degree oven until brown and bubbly. I swear it’s awesome. Just don’t deviate from any of the ingredients. I don’t know what happens if you do I never have, it’s just what Maman told me

    • Okay, am I blind? I see the spring oionns (which look remarkably like the seeds I planted about 3 months ago maybe mine will now take off) and broccoli, but where is the lettuce and spinach? Seeds?

    • Any sprouts yet? It’s been a few days and my lectute and spinach are going crazy. Also a few of my dill seeds sprouted over night. And my cukes and zucchini are all out. I figure you must have a nice row of lectute and spinach shoots too.

    • pie at home on Friday night.a0 I decided to use baby aisnpch I had at home instead of using the broccoli rabe. What a great idea! It was delicious! Here are some pictures of my new favorite pie. If you are

    • How come you can plant spring onoins but not garlic and bulb onoins? Aren’t they all full moon phase plantings?Are you going to try spring onoins from seeds? I’ve had no luck but I’m still confident is must be possible.

  1. Your perfect pie at home looks great! I also enjoy enlrniag to make many kinds of pizza and always am on the journey to find another recipe to try. Thanks for your post!

  2. I don’t know, might be a bit of both. My boys used to eat everything! (when they were 2 and 3 yrs old) now at 5 and 7 they are very picky eslecialpy the younger one I think he is a closet vegetarian Sometime I think I have spoiled them into eating only “kid” food like kraft dinner, grilled cheese, fish sticks etc. since it is just faster when I pick them up at daycare at 5:30 and then need to get dinner, homework, bath and some little bit of free time in before bed at 7:30ish and I am not a good planner so I never get stuff ready ahead of time to just “pop” in the oven when I get home and even if I did they would likely not eat it anyway I just try and feel happy that they will eat vegetables carrots, brocolli, peppers, cucumber, salad etc.
