Always looking for great tasting foos without all the high carbs and sugars?  Just by dressing up our favourite low carb foods, we can make eating /  Dining a whole new experience!  Just like these Buffalo Chicken Stuffex Zucchini Boats!  A tasty dish your whole family will love!

PREP TIME 10 mins COOK TIME 4 hours TOTAL TIME 4 hours 10 mins Serves: 12 boats

 INGREDIENTS

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 cup chicken broth (if using the slow cooker)

⅓ cup hot sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot)

6 zucchini, sliced in half lengthwise*

⅔ cup blue cheese

⅓ cup chopped celery Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing (optional)

 INSTRUCTIONS

Place the chicken breasts in a slow cooker and pour in the chicken broth. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for up to 8 hours.

Alternatively, you can roast or poach the chicken.

When cooking is complete, shred the chicken. In a bowl, combine the shredded chicken and hot sauce.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Using a spoon, hollow out each zucchini half and fill with about ¼ cup of shredded chicken.

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of blue cheese over each zucchini boat. Place in the oven for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of chopped celery over the zucchini boats and if desired, drizzle ranch or blue cheese dressing over the top.

NOTES * The zucchini boats are not as tender as regular roasted zucchini due to the short cooking time. If you’d like your zucchini boats to be tender, pre-cook it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes before adding the filling and baking.

Parmesan-Crusted Chicken with Agurla Salad

Why just have a plain salad when you can have a Parmesan-Crusted Chicken with Agurla Salad!  Great combination for a great LCHF meal or side dish!  Dress up your chicken and enjoy a healthy salad meal or side dish!
INGREDIENTS Nutrition
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, divided
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
1⁄2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
4 (6 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1⁄2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, divided (I’ve used store-bought in a pinch)
1⁄2 teaspoon water
4 cups packed arugula (I’ve also used a spring mix)
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk 2 teaspoons of the mustard with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil and the thyme.
Season the chicken breasts, on both sides, with salt and pepper – then brush them all over with the mustard mixture.
Pat about 2 T. of the parmesan on EACH chicken breast (both sides) – it should take about 1/2 Cup total for all 4 breasts.
Transfer the chicken breasts to a rimmed baking sheet (I line mine with alum. foil sprayed with just a touch of Pam – for easy release and clean-up).
Bake the chicken on the top shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until just cooked through and nicely browned.
Meanwhile, in a salad bowl, combine the remaining 1 teaspoon each of mustard and oil; then stir in the water.
Add the arugula (or spring mix lettuce) and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and toss well.
Spoon the salad onto plates, top with the chicken and serve!

HAMBURGER GRAVY AND MASHED “POTATOES”
For those who love meat and potatoes, but are watching what they eat, here is a low carb meal the whole family will enjoy!
Hamburger Gravy and Mashed Potatoes1 pound ground beef
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoon onion, chopped
3 ounces mushrooms, minced, about 8 small
1/2 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 bags frozen cauliflower, 24 ounces
1/2-1 teaspoon xanthan gum, optional*
Brown the hamburger, celery and onion in a large skillet; drain the fat. Add the minced mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook until the mushrooms are tender. Add the broth and cream; bring to a boil. Simmer until the liquid has reduced by half and thickens. Season to taste. Meanwhile, cook the cauliflower until very tender, about 8 minutes; drain well. Mash and add some butter; season to taste. Serve the meat sauce over the cauliflower or just mix it all together.
Makes 5 servings
* You can thicken the gravy with xanthan gum rather than reduce it until thick. The end result will be nice and saucy. After stirring in the broth and cream, bring it to a boil, then sprinkle lightly with some of the xanthan gum, about 1/2 teaspoon at a time, and quickly stir in. Repeat until all of xanthan is mixed in. Let simmer a few minutes to thicken. Season and continue with the recipe as directed above.

Cajun Chicken Stuffed With Pepper Jack Cheese & Spinach
Wanting some Cajun style for dinner?  Here is the perfect recipes for Cajun Chicken.stuffed with pepper Jack Cheese and spinach!   A meal done Louisianna Style!
.
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 oz pepper jack cheese, shredded (you can use up to 6 oz)
1 c frozen spinach, thawed and drained (you can also use fresh cooked spinach)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp Cajun seasoning – click here for my homemade Cajun spice recipe
1 tbsp breadcrumbs (I use Italian style)
Sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Lots of toothpicks
Cajun Chicken Stuffed with Pepper Jack Cheese and Spinach.
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Flatten the chicken to 1/4-inch thickness. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the pepper jack cheese, spinach, salt and pepper.
4. Combine the Cajun seasoning and breadcrumbs together in a small bowl.
5. Spoon about 1/4 c of the spinach mixture onto each chicken breast. Roll each chicken breast tightly and fasten the seams with several toothpicks. This part requires a tiny bit of skill and I typically use about 8 toothpicks in each roll to ensure none of the filling seeps out. Be sure to count how many total toothpicks were used!
6. Brush each chicken breast with the olive oil. Sprinkle the Cajun seasoning mixture evenly over all. Make sure you get underneath, too. Sprinkle any remaining spinach and cheese on top of chicken (optional).
7. Place the chicken seam-side up onto a tin foil-lined baking sheet (for easy cleanup). Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
8. Remove the toothpicks before serving. Count to make sure you have removed every last toothpick. Serve whole or slice into medallions. Enjoy!
