Buffalo Ranch Croquettes

Very messy to make but worth it ;)

1 large boneless chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 ounces cream cheese, room temp.
1/4 cup LC Ranch Dressing... (I like buttermilk ranch)
2 tablespoons of Frank's Buffalo Sauce
1 tablespoon LC Flour
1 tablespoon diced celerly
Parmeson Cheese (powdered)

Preheat Oven 375o

In a frying pan add chicken and buffalo sauce, cook until buffalo sauce coats chicken. In a small bowl mix together ranch dressing and cream cheese, celery, and flour. Then add chicken mixture, stir well.

Messy Part

(I used a medium PC Scoop) Scoop out a level amount of mixture and sprinkle a generous amout of Parm. cheese then scoop mixture into hands and roll out in Parm. cheese.

Bake for around 10-12 minutes till golden brown.

Let me know what you think ;O)

Loaded Mashed Cauliflower with Chicken Medallions

Loaded Mashed Cauliflower

1/2 bag frozen cauliflower florets, cooked (I microwave for about 10 minutes)
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper

Place in Bullet or food processor. Process till mushy... like mashed potatoes.
Next add 2 tablespoons of cream and process again.
Top with bacon, sour cream, and cheese.

 Chicken Medallions
1 frozen boneless chicken breast
favorite spices

Microwave frozen chicken one minute or less, chicken should still be firm, this should help with the slicing. Slice chicken in very thin slices and season with spices and fry on each side till done...

Low Carb Totillas

One cup of egg whites
3 tablespoons psyllium fiber (I use Konsyl, I purchased from Walmart)

Let this mixture sit for several minutes and stir once in a while.

In a sprayed non-stick pan that has been preheated, place a couple of tablespoons of the mixture and tilt the pan to cover the bottom, flip when top is dry, then cook for a little while and remove and repeat the process.
When finished I sprinkled with  cinnamon and Spenda.

*I am going to try rolling up the finished tortillas (because they are flexable),  and  deep fry for cannolli shells.
* Also I will cut into triangles, fry and add nacho cheese sprinkles
*You also get a good dose of fiber from this recipe :)
