Creamy Green Bean Baked Chicken (Keto & Paleo)
It's that time of the year where comfort foods always sound like a great idea! With the temperatures decreasing slowly a good creamy and veggie loaded meal is just like a hug for the soul and body.
In this occasion I decided to create this nutrient dense and comforting recipe for several reasons; these type of meals is just what our bodies need to stay strong and healthy... specially during this pandemic!
I included one of my staple ingredients! Bone broth.
Bone broth contains amino acids that promote collagen production, this is perfect to show and get some nourishment to our gut because major part of our immune system is in our guts!
Zinc is also an essential mineral that helps our immune system stay strong, along other nutrients bone broth has vitamin A, K, selenium, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium and calcium.
As you can see bone broth is a simple but nutrient dense food that can be easily be added into any recipe! On today's recipe I added some of Proper Good Chicken & Mushroom, which is made with chicken breast and bone broth.
These bone broths are:
Easy to prepare
They don't need to be refrigerated (while closed)
The cool thing about Proper Good is that they also get involved with their costumers, for example you can get rewards by only signing up here! And they also help you recycle your pouches which is something I think is very nice and innovative!
By now you can get that I'm in love with these soups! And hopefully you'll get hooked as well because apart of these bone broths being so good for our bodies (and tasting great), this recipe is going to be EPIC!
Creamy Green Bean Baked Chicken. This recipe really reminds me of thanksgiving, the Chicken & Mushroom Soup really reminds me of my mom's gravy recipe! Along with the green beans, peas, carrots and sun-dried tomatoes this recipe is just perfect for this time of the year!
This recipe is EXTREMELY easy to make, you only need a blender and your oven! Making this recipe great for meal preps too!
Here are some of the ingredients we will be using
I think that lime juice is always a key ingredient for my recipes, specially when we are using meats since the acidity of the lime juice keeps the chicken nice, juicy and tender. After adding the lime juice I always add the seasonings, in this case, dried parsley, sea salt and black pepper.
For the recipe I made a quick cauliflower mash to create an extra creamy and thickness factor, that before baking I mixed with three quarters of the Chicken & Mushroom Bone Broth Soup. Pouring this mushroom and cauliflower mix is the next step of the recipe.
Veggies are the final step before purring the chicken in the oven, make sure you have reheated it at 350F. The carrots can be raw or slightly steamed, as you prefer. I added them raw and they god nicely cooked with the chicken.
Once the chicken is baked you can serve it with a loaded salad, a gluten free bun in you'll like and for meal preps you can reheat this on the microwave for a couple of seconds or in the little oven!
For dinner or lunch, this recipe will be just perfect to nourish your body in a delicious and simple way! Using nutrient dense ingredients; all the veggies and bone broth! That personally I think it should be your main star ingredient... for life!
Ways to incorporate bone broth into your life
Sipping it in a cup with some lime juice (my favorite!)
Using to cook stews and meals

As a replacement of water in savory baked goods!
As a nutritionist, take me advice... embrace the bone broth in your life! It's going to make you so much good, and prepare veggie loaded recipes!
