How to make Good For You Chicken Broccoli Bake


Simple, Quick and Healthy.

Low Carb. High Protein.  High Fiber.  Well Spiced.

Sure to become a quick-dinner-fix favorite!

 

Preheat the oven to 350*.

Coat the bottom of a baker with olive oil (about 2 tablespoons).  Place the chicken inside and spice to taste.

Cover with foil and bake 20-30 minutes.  Uncover and bake an extra 10 minutes.

(Chicken should be cooked through but still tender.)


While chicken is cooking, dice the onion and place in pot with broccoli and ¼ cup of water. Cover and simmer until broccoli is dark green but still firm and onion is not yet opaque.

Drain and set aside.

(Broccoli/Onion should still be warm for next step.)


Remove chicken from baker and dice into bite-sized chunks.  Drain baker and place chicken back inside.

Cover chicken with soup, cheese, breadcrumbs and broccoli/onion.  Mix well and press down.

Top with more spices and a sprinkling of breadcrumbs.

(These spices give the dish a real kick and are good for you too!)

 

Cover with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes.  Uncover and brown for 10 minutes.


Serve warm.

Question from the Chef

“Do you know if cayenne pepper really is good for your metabolism?”

    Hey JessCooks, this is my first use of OSF... I have no idea about cayenne pepper, but I have a question/comment about your recipe. (Hope that's ok!) I'm wondering if you could substitute the can of chicken soup and the breadcrumbs to get it even more low carb. Say, sour cream and boullion instead of the soup, and ground flax seeds instead of the crumbs? Another question: how would I "grab" your recipe and make my modifications using OSF? Is that a manual process for now?

    Hi Skriv! Comments are always welcome! Thanks for taking the time! I think that your suggested modifications would work. The sour cream will add a really good flavor, but be careful with the flax. It will add a bit of a nutty flavor, and make things a little more moist. The cream and the flax might also clash flavor-wise. The breadcrumbs usually serve to absorb the majority of the moisture from both the chicken and broccoli and so make the dish a real bake. But have fun with it. Texture is also a matter of taste, so make what you know you like. If you find that something different works, please copy and paste and adjust my recipe as you would like. I'd be honored! :) Happy cooking! ~JessCooks
