Skinny Chicken Loaded Potato Casserole – Our most popular recipe made skinny and into a meal! Everyone will be coming back for seconds!
One of our most favorite recipes is the loaded potato casserole. I thought it would be a great idea to re-create the recipe, but making it skinnier. Just because it says, skinny does not mean it’s skinny on flavor. If you love the original, you are going to go crazy over this one.
It’s a main dish instead of a side dish with the additional of diced chicken. Add a side salad or a vegetable and your meal be will complete.
So tell me how do you make your meals smarter with lower calories and healthier options? Most of the time for our cheese, we use low-fat skim shredded mozzarella cheese instead of cheese with more calories and skim or 1% milk. Now and then I will add a little cheddar cheese for extra flavor. With, of course, substituting sugars with other lower calorie alternatives. And trying to add more vegetables to a dish.
For this dish, HORIZON Organic milk was the perfect choice!
When we go to the grocery store, I usually have my meals for the week already planned out. I try to leave a day or two for leftovers. With most of our produce that needs to be used, i.e., lettuce, greens, fresh herbs quickly, I try to use those in the meals at the beginning of the week.
And may I say, this skinny chicken loaded potato casserole is perfect for leftovers the next day. Instead of grabbing lunch out while you are working, bring a slice of this casserole and you are good to go.
