Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!


You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great.


Enjoy!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole (Keto/Low Carb)


Greetings friends! Long time, no see. Life is chugging along over in my neck of the woods. I have a few low carb recipes to share with you this Summer. I hope you enjoy. First up is this really tasty Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole.


I went with cheddar cheese in this instead of the traditional Swiss as I find Swiss can be a bit overpowering in flavor. One thing I really enjoyed about this recipe is that the consistency isn't super duper thick. The homemade low carb mushroom soup is so delicious. If you are low carbing I highly recommend it as it opens up a lot of casserole options for your meal planning.


Enjoy!

Print Friendly Recipe

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1 cup thinly sliced deli ham
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Mushroom Cream Sauce (Makes 1 cup):
  • 4 oz. canned mushrooms (You can also use fresh mushrooms)
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 tsp. chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste (1/4 tsp each)
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan gum, optional (Convenient to use as it thickens the soup faster without needing to reduce the liquids)
  • Crunchy topping:
  • 1 cup pork rind crumbs (blitz them in a food processor)
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
Directions:
  1. Prepare the mushroom cream sauce: Saute the mushrooms, celery, onion and butter until soft. Add the chicken broth, cream and water, then bring to a boil. As soon as it begins to boil, reduce heat to keep it at a simmer and cook until slightly thickened. If using the Xanthan gum to thicken, sprinkle it in as the soup is simmering in stir in quickly to incorporate. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the chicken mixture: Mix the chicken, ham, cheddar and sour cream together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Prepare the crunchy topping: Mix the pork rind crumbs and melted butter together. Set aside.
  4. In an lightly sprayed 8x8-inch baking dish, spread the mushroom sauce over the bottom of the dish. Add the chicken mixture evenly over the soup. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the casserole.
  5. Bake at 350-f for about 20 minutes, or until bubbly.

Mushroom Cream Sauce recipe adapted slightly from Anna's Kitchen, who found it at Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes.

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.


Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!
