When it comes to rethinking recipes, I love to play with the ingredients I have and make the most of them. This Creamzzy Chicken Casserole is one of my favorites due to low-fat content and because it is creamy and cheezy at the same time.

Standing in my kitchen, I’ve had some light ingredients from some time (like light cheese & light cream) and I wanted to use them. Frying was not an option, therefore, I chose baking instead. The greatest thing regarding the Creamzzy Chicken Casserole is that the result was a weight-loss poultry recipe, and where is weight-loss is also (in most of the cases) healthy life. I took a pen and started to add other ingredients besides the light cheese and light cream, and the best combination is with brown onion, potatoes, garlic, chives (very important), and paprika. The spiciness is important for this recipe, and the resulted flavor of this mixture is marvelous! The potatoes can be Russet or Idaho, your choice (I used Idaho, but russet potatoes go well too).
- To complete the meal, serve with greens, mixed vegetables or salad. Choose vegetables in season and aim for at least 3 different types of veggies and 1–2 cups per person.
- To reduce cooking time, potatoes can be precooked by steaming or boiling for 5–10 minutes. I didn’t do it because the flavor will change a bit.
- Cut off the chicken fat and dice the meat before starting.
- You can also use Turkey or other poultry meat, but this recipe isn’t compatible with pork, lamb or beef. Choose only poultry.
- The baking dish used is a shallow 6 cup casserole.
- The potatoes should be peeled first and finely sliced, but thicker than chips.
If you want to have a bigger size of the serving, or simply you want to add more flavor to it, add some thinly sliced carrots, cucumber, a bit of celery, zucchini, and red bell pepper. But before adding, I do recommend preparing it just like I did and you’ll see it’s great and also cheaper. Simpler is sometimes better tough! However, if I would want to eat something with more vegetables in it, for sure I’ll switch to chicken Marengo, another great dish for losing weight.
Well, that depends if you want to overcook it. If you only ask to know this info, but you don’t want to intentionally overcook it, the answer is NO. As long as there is plenty of liquid in the casserole, you’ll not overcook it. However, if you let it too long in the oven, the meat and other vegetables may start falling apart into the sauce/liquid the longer you leave it. But follow my steps and all will be ok.
For some invented recipes, I like to attach a new word that simply explains the dish. For example, the Creamzzy word is coming from creamy, cheezy and crazy chicken casserole recipe. I am not a professional in this area (inventing new words) but I do like to cook, and liking the word or not, the dish is all the above :D.
The chicken meat is a great source of low-fat protein which contributes to muscle growth and development and controls the body’s homocysteine amino acid levels (which makes it very good for your heart). It is great for weight-loss diets due to the B6 vitamin, keeping healthy vessels, energy levels balanced, and helps your metabolism to burn away calories. Besides the chicken meat, the potatoes and the other low-fat ingredients will help you lose the belly fat if eaten with moderation. Prepare this recipe in day 2/7 for dinner, followed up the next day by Teriyaki Chicken with Couscous (another weight-loss recipe).
I'm sorry you didn't like it 🙁
