Is Chicken Cabbage Casserole healthy?

This dish is very hearty, but at the same time it’s healthy too. If you’re looking for a comfort food that will satisfy your hunger, this Chicken Cabbage Casserole is a good idea. If you serve it as a hearty main on its own, it qualifies as a low-carb dish. Perfect for those who are watching their calories.

Can I use Chicken Leftovers? 

If you’re using cooked chicken leftovers, you need to adjust the cooking time slightly. Instead of slicing the cabbage into thick slices, rather shred them finely, so that they cook faster. If you keep the cabbage size and cooking time the same, the chicken will overcook and become dry.

Recipe Tips

– This recipe is great for using up leftovers. Use chicken leftovers, or any other cooked vegetables. If you want to use other raw veggies, shred them with a grater or a food processor to ensure even cooking.

– There are a few ways you can make this Low Carb Chicken Cabbage Casserole more flavorful. Cook without lid to evaporate liquids and sauté the cabbage with onion before adding it to the baking pan. Add cheddar cheese, cream cheese, or even cottage cheese for a bit of creaminess. Of course, if you’re feeling extravagant, you can add some chopped, cooked bacon too!
