This week I made, honey sweet potato casserole and ground chicken muffins.
Honey Sweet Potato Casserole:
5 sweet potatoes
1 tbsp of honey
1/4 cup of evaporated milk
Slowly cook sweet potatoes in the crock pot on low for 3 or 4 hours. You will be able to peel the skin off of them once you take them out.
Mash them in a large bowl and add in evaporated milk, cinnamon, honey, and ginger.
Place in a baking dish of your choice. (Be sure to spray the dish with cooking spray first.)
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. My pan made 10 servings at only 80 calories per serving and about 14 grams of carbs. This is a wonderful replacement for sweet potato pie! You don’t need much to sweeten sweet potatoes.
Ground Chicken Muffins
See recipe for Ground Turkey Muffins and follow the same directions. You will replace the turkey with ground chicken and add in a cup of black beans. These are DELICIOUS and juicy. Warning…place tin foil under your muffin tin because the juice from the meat will spill over and burn the bottom of your stove! I learned this the hard way. These are very portable and low-fat. I even eat them at room temperature because I can’t always get to the microwave at work.
