Green Chile Chicken Bake

Submitted by: GREENPORCHLIGHT

Introduction

A low-carb casserole that will please even the non-dieters.

The chiles can be found at any international market. To lighten the calorie load, I use 2% Mexican blend shredded cheese and 1% milk. Also, to speed this recipe up, I often use chicken breasts off an already-cooked rotisserie from the store.

Ingredients

    1 can or jar Green Chiles, rinsed and drained
    2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded
    4 cups shredded cheese
    1/2 cup chopped scallions
    5 eggs
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    1/2 tsp. chili powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 375.

Spray a casserole dish with nonstick spray.

Line the bottom of the dish with a single layer of chiles, followed by half of the shredded chicken. Next, sprinkle two cups of the cheese over the top, followed by 1/4 cup of the scallions.

Repeat another layer using the same order.

Whisk together the five eggs, the milk, the cumin, and the chili powder. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the top of the entire casserole.

Cover the dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for another 25 minutes or until the top is browned and bubbly.

Serves 6.
