Chicken Under a Biscuit Casserole

So yesterday I spent the day demolishing my deck for the new one I am starting to build in a few weeks. It was supposed to rain by noon, so my plan was to work outside until the rain started then move inside for work on the blog. Well the rain didn’t start until after 6:00 pm. So I kept working on the deck until 5:30. No blog work, but I still needed to make dinner.

Sunday I had taken some chicken out of the freezer to use this week. I also had cauliflower, mushrooms and fresh corn, that were needing to be cooked, before they found their way to the trash bin. What I came up with was this fairly healthy simple chicken casserole. This is a quick and easy recipe which allows you to substitute whatever items you have in the fridge that are on their last legs.www.dadwhats4dinner.com

Makes great leftovers for lunch the next day. Trust me I just had it for lunch.

My kids loved this and didn’t even notice the smashed cauliflower for the bottom crust. Smashed cauliflower adds a nutritious nice flavor to the dish.

Enjoy!

Quick Reduced Fat Chicken Alfredo

www.dadwhats4dinner.com

Last week we had rain almost everyday. This makes it hard to plan dinners, because we do not know if practice’s will be canceled until the last-minute. Always fun! We made up for it this weekend with over 20 hours spent at the fields watching the kids play.

My kids love Alfredo sauce, but it is so so fattening. I created this recipe last week using convenient items which I mostly had in my pantry. I just picked up the Bertolli Reduced Fat Alfredo sauce and a chicken from the store. This dish is much lower in fat and is a one skillet dish, that is quick and easy, your kids will love. The artichokes and mushrooms are optional, but adds great flavor to the recipe.

This recipe also takes advantage of using store bought rotisserie chicken to make it an even easier weeknight meal.

30 minutes or less.

Yum!!!

Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole with Ground Turkey and Potatoes

I’m always interested in creating new recipes using ground turkey, especially casseroles, that are easy to make and incorporate vegetables. This recipe is simple, easy to put together and taste great. Your kids will not even notice the cauliflower and a its great way to incorporate vegetables into their diet.

To simplify the recipe I used Simply Potatoes brand Diced Potatoes with Onions.  For the ground turkey I usually buy the 4 pack of ground turkey, by Butterball, from Costco. Packs average around a 1.5 pounds each.

To cut baking time in half, I recommend microwaving the potatoes for three minutes.

To make ahead, brown the ground turkey, boil the cauliflower and assemble the rest of the ingredients. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to cook. As you preheat the oven, remove the casserole from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature. Cook until top is slightly brown and edges are bubbling.
