BBQ Pulled Chicken with cauliflower “Mac and cheese” with broccoli 

This is a great low carb yet yummy comfort summer dinner. 

BBQ Pulled Chicken 🐔

Ingredients-chicken breast, onion, carrots, celery, mesquite seasoning, BBQ sauce (I made my own but I would highly recommend Sweet Baby Rays), salt and pepper.

Method-place chicken breast in pot with the onions, carrots and celery rough chopped. Add water and about a 2 tablespoons of salt to the water. Just enough water to cover the chicken. Bring pot to a low simmer and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked. Once cooked cool in chicken broth and take out of broth (save broth for other meals) and begin to shred chicken add mesquite seasoning and BBQ sauce until you like the taste.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese🧀

Ingredient-fresh cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, whole wheat all purpose flour, butter, garlic, cheedar cheese, cream cheese and milk

Method-cut the cauliflower to bite size pieces and place in boiling water and cook until tender. Once tender take out and cool in ice water to stop cooking. In a pot add about 2 tablespoons of butter and a minced garlic clove to the pot and cook until aromatic. Add the flour and cook on low heat for about 6 minutes, stirring constantly so it doesn’t burn. Add the milk, about 2 cups and whisk into put add the cheeses (cheedar, mozzarella and cream cheese) and whisk until everything is melted. Checked seasoning and once you are happy with the flavor. In a baking dish add the cauliflower to the dish and top with the cheese sauce bake in a 350 preheated oven for about 10min. It will start to bubble and look like your classic Mac and cheese 🧀 but you will have no guilt after. 

Broccoli

Ingredients-broccoli, salt and pepper

Method-cut broccoli to bite size, bring a pot of salted water to boil and add the broccoli. Cook until tender. Eat and enjoy immediately or plug in cold water and reheat later.
