Healthy Baked Carrot Fries

 (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

 

As I continue on my weight loss journey with Nutrisystem (see previous post HERE for most recent update) I am continually searching for ways to incorporate more veggies into my diet. When I came across this recipe for Carrot Fries on Pinterest, I knew that I had to try it. I am so glad that I did! I eat these all of the time and they really satisfy when I have the urge to eat something crunchy! 

INGREDIENTS:

1 bag of Matchstick Carrots

Olive Oil 

Sea Salt

DIRECTIONS:

Place half the bag of carrots on a baking sheet. Toss carrots with 1 Tbsp. of Olive Oil and sprinkle with Sea Salt. Bake in a 350 degree for 10 minutes. You will want to take the carrots out of the oven and keep tossing them every couple of minutes until they are crisp. You do need to watch these very carefully in the last few minutes as to avoid burning them. Repeat with the rest of the bag. 

Enjoy! I would love to hear your thoughts on these, but I am addicted! Emoji

Chicken Pot Pie "Muffins"

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy) 

If you are like me, I am always trying to come up with clever ways to get veggies into my boys diet. One of the things that they love is Chicken Pot Pie. I played around with this idea of Chicken Pot Pie "Muffins" in my head for awhile and one day decided to make them. My boys absolutely love these and you can really get creative and add whatever veggies you like into the mix. Plus, this is a great way to make use of that leftover Rotisserie Chicken that you have sitting in your refrigerator!

Chicken Pot Pie "Muffins"

INGREDIENTS:

1 8-count can of Jumbo Biscuits

1 can of Drained Mixed Veggies (you can really add whatever veggies you like here)

1 small can of Cream of Chicken Soup

Shredded leftover Rotisserie Chicken

Salt/Pepper to Taste

 

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the Cream of Chicken and Mixed Veggies together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the shredded chicken mixture. 

Take the Biscuits and place them in a greased muffin tin. With your fingers make the middle section into a bowl for the chicken mixture. 

With an ice cream scoop place the chicken mixture into the center of each of the biscuit "muffins"

Bake at 350 until the Biscuit "Muffins" are golden brown. 

Serve and Enjoy!

Easy Taco Chicken (Low Carb)

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I have an Amazing and Easy Chicken Dish for you all to try! I came across this recipe on a Facebook Recipe group and my entire family was blown away at just how tasty this dish was! It is also low carb if you are watching your carb intake!

Easy Taco Chicken

INGREDIENTS:

4-5 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

1 Packet of Taco Seasoning

1 Small Can of Mushrooms or you can use a handful of cut up fresh mushrooms

1 Small can of Tomato Paste

3-4 Diced Green Onions

1-2 Cups of Shredded Colby Jack Cheese

 

DIRECTIONS:

Mix together the Taco Seasoning Packet and One cup of Water. Marinate the Chicken Breasts in this mixture for 1-2 hours. The longer you marinate it the more flavor that it will have. 

Place the chicken in a baking dish and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. 

Remove chicken from the oven and place a dallop of Tomato Paste over each chicken breast. Layer Mushrooms on top of this and then drizzle the chicken with the Taco Mixture from the dish. 

Place the chicken back in the oven for another 10-12 minutes. 

Pull from the oven and top with the Cheese and Green Onions. 

Broil in the oven until the Cheese is melted and gooey. 

Serve with Rice or Vegetables and Enjoy!
