Low Calorie Recipe
Tasty Countdown Casserole with chicken, onions, bell peppers, corn, potatoes seasoned with salt and pepper and topped with Cheddar cheese.
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups ground chicken breasts, skinless and cooked
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1/2 cup bell peppers, chopped
3 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
4 cups frozen hash browns, thawed
3/4 cup skim milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup fat free Cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray; set aside. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken, onions, and bell peppers. Cook until chicken is longer pink and vegetables are tender. Stir in corn, hash browns, milk, salt, and black pepper.
Bake, covered, for 30 minutes or until heated through. Top with cheddar cheese. Bake for three minutes more or until cheese has melted.
Not all ground poultry is as healthy as one may think. Ground turkey or chicken often includes the skin and dark meat, adding a lot of fat and calories. Look for lean or breast on the label to ensure it includes only breast meat, which is much leaner.
