Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Creamy Chicken Casserole

Creamy Chicken Casserole3__NoSugarlessGum

I gave up dairy a while ago for my health (except occasionally some butter) and it has been really hard!  It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve had a good creamy recipe.  This one really satisfies that craving.  I was worried it might be a little bland, but I think it was just the colors psyching me out.  It was actually really flavorful!  This recipe may take a bit of planning if you don’t have all the ingredients on hand, so make sure you have enough time.  It’s a great recipe to make early on and cook later too.

If you don’t already have Homemade Chicken Broth to use, now is a great time to make it.  I would recommend using 2 packages of chicken drumsticks and then you can use the meat from that for the chicken in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 lb of shredded chicken
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • fat from can of coconut milk
  • 1 cup of Homemade Chicken Broth
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour

Directions

Cook spaghetti squash per instructions found here.

Set oven to 400˚.

Cut the cauliflower into bite-size pieces and boil for 11 minutes.  Set aside.

Put the coconut fat (its the solid white part in the can at the top), salt, nutmeg, and pepper into a pot and bring to a boil.

Reduce to medium-high heat and let boil for 8-9 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil again, then reduce heat and let boil for 15 minutes.

Add in the coconut flour and whisk together for about a minute.

Add cauliflower, spaghetti squash, and chicken into a casserole dish.

Pour the mixture into the dish and stir to coat well.

Put the dish in the oven for 15 minutes, then broil for 5.
