This is a recipe I tried out of one of my all-time favorite Low Carb Cookbooks called 500 More Low Carb Recipes by Dana Carpender. It's a collection of recipes submitted by other low carbbers and there are some really fantastic recipes in it! We eat a lot of chicken in our house, and so I'm always on the look out for a new (but simple) way to prepare it. This recipe is quite good! It's creamy, it's cheesy, and my husband said he thought it was even better the next day as leftovers!
Brenda Theune's Cheesy Chicken
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used boneless skinless strips)
4 oz softened cream cheese
2 tablespoons softened butter
2 tablespoons whole cream
1 tablespoon minced onion (I omitted this simply because I didn't have any)
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 cup of shredded cheese (I used cheddar and I used more than 1/2 a cup)
1. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease a 9x9 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and place your chicken in without overlapping.
2. Mix the cream cheese, butter, cream, onion, and spices and spread the mixture evenly over the chicken.
3. Spread the cheese on top and bake for about 45 minutes or until chicken is done. Let it rest and cool a bit after taking it from the oven.
If you follow the recipe and use the 2 chicken breast it calls for, the recipe yields 2 servings at 3 carbs each.
