Clean Chicken & Veggie Casserole

Even though I'm the ultimate over planner, there are still (many) days I don't plan out all my meals. Sometimes I wake up in the morning and have no idea what I'm going to have for breakfast, let alone lunch or dinner. Today was kind of one of those days. We went to a barbecue on Sunday evening, so I didn't have a dinner prepped for lunch today. I also didn't have a chance to think about what I was going to make for dinner, but before I left for work today, I threw some chicken in the crockpot and decided I would just figure it out when I got home. 

And now, we have a new recipe! 

- 3 large chicken breasts, shredded (I put mine in the crock pot with about 2 cups of low sodium chicken broth and seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. 
- 1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
- 3 large yams, cubed and cooked
- 2 eggs 
- 1 bag pre cut veggies, cooked (slightly under cooked)
- 1 raw zucchini, chopped
- 1 T garlic powder
- 1 T onion powder
- Salt and pepper to taste 

1. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well. (Make sure none of your ingredients are too hot or the eggs will start to cook.)
2. Place in a large casserole dish and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
(If you would like to add cheese, add it before you put it in to bake. I did cheddar and mozzarella on B's side) 

I enjoyed mine with a little low sugar ketchup, of course! 

How are you when it comes to planning? Are you a planner or someone that just wings it?


  1. This is probably a lame question but do I cook the yams on the stove first or in the oven? Thanks! This sounds like the perfect dinner for tonight!

  2. Hey Brittany! I am super lazy! Sounds like you can cook the chicken in the crockpot while at work and throw in the veggies for 20-30 mins in the crockpot without having to put it in the oven. Will let you know how it turns out for me! :-)

  3. How many servings does this make? Also, did you beat the eggs before you added them?

  4. I have seen that you cook a lot of chicken in the crockpot--I have one and under-use it. I would love to know how you cook chicken in the crockpot without it drying out all day. I work an hour away so these recipes you post are great for me to use! Thank so much!!
