Chicken and Vege Cheesy Bake

Chicken and Vege Cheesy Bake

cheesybakeI love making casseroles on Sundays so I have something easy to grab to take to work during the week for lunch that is gluten-free and low-carb. This week I decided to make something similar to all the mock mac& cheeses I have seen all over Pinterest. I added cayenne pepper to give it a little kick, I bet it would be awesome with canned green chilies as well!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 100 g Kirkland cheddar jack cheese
  • 2.5 oz cream cheese
  • 340g Safeway farms steam in a bag broccoli & cauliflower
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 220 grams Kirkland chicken breast packed in water
  • 60g frozen spinach
  • 60 g 365 mayonnaise
  • Spices to taste (I used cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper)

 

 Topping

  • 40g pork rinds (adolph’s)
  • 40g asiago shredded cheese

 

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Pre-cook vegetables in boiling water until desired firmness.
  • Drain vegetables well. I used a colander and pressed down with a spatula to remove excess water.
  • Place chicken pieces along the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Top with cooked vegetables.
  • Mix together cheddar jack cheese, cream, cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, and spices in a small saucepan to simmer. Continuously stirring until all ingredients are smooth and well-mixed.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat, pour over the veges.
  • Cook for 15 minutes or until bubbling along the edges.
  • Mix together asiago cheese and/pork rinds.
  • Top with the asiago cheese/pork rinds combo, switch the oven to broil and broil for two to four minutes. Keep an eye on it!

Let cool for five minutes and then enjoy!
