This recipe is really a cross between a thick creamy soup and a casserole depending on when you eat it. Either way it is fantastic!

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb chicken breast, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 5 oz. shredded swiss cheese
  • 8 oz nitrate free ham slices, cut into thin strips
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2-3 oz pork rinds, coarsely crushed
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Bake chicken for 10 minutes, they will not be thoroughly cooked
  • In a small sauce pan, heat the chicken stock and heavy cream until almost simmering, add the shredded swiss cheese, salt and pepper and stir until cheese is melted and creamy.
  • In a large bowl combine the chicken with the hams trips, add the beaten egg and stir to coat evenly.
  • In a 2 quart casserole dish, add the chicken and ham mixture and spread out evenly. Pour the sauce evenly over the chicken.
  • Mix the crushed pork rinds with the melted butter, spread over the top and sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes.

**Note: Allow this too cool for 15-20 minutes before serving. If you are eating right away it will be more of a thick soup consistency, the longer it cools the more it thickens ups and then when re-heated the next day it is more of a casserole consistency. It tastes great either way you eat it.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
