Chicken and Broccoli Muffin Cups

I am back in the kitchen! Yay! Needed a little break away from experimenting and to find my balance! So here is what I came up with today….

1/4 cup ground old-fashioned oats
1 chicken breast (7oz or more)
4 large broccoli florets (4oz)
1oz Fat Free Feta cheese
1 whole large egg
2 tablespoons of non-fat Greek yogurt
Dash of Sea Salt
Garlic pepper to taste
Coconut oil non-stick cooking spray

1. In a food processor, grind up broccoli and place into a bowl
2. Place chunks of cut of chicken breast into food processor and grind up, then add to broccoli
3. Add in egg, feta cheese and Greek yogurt
4. Mix together, then add in oatmeal
5. Using a tablespoon, measure out a heaping scoop and place into a greased muffin tin. About 3/4 full
5. Bake at 375* for 30 minutes

Serving size: 8 muffins
Calories per muffin: 55

1. Omit the yogurt, it is there for extra moisture
2. Use 2 egg whites instead of 1 whole
3. Add different type of cheese(s)
4. Add additional veggies or change it to something you like
5. Use a laughing cow cheese wedge

*** Side note: The flavor on this has a slightly bitter taste from the broccoli. You may need to add less broccoli for more of a chicken flavor. Or change up the veggie you use! ***


About Lisa Lamb

This is a way for me to share my passion for living a healthy lifestyle, share my fitness journey and to create low calorie recipes for us and my daughter Makenna who has Prader-Willi Syndrome! Description My daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome which in a nutshell, (but please feel free to google for more information) will cause a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. The food compulsion makes for constant supervision necessary. This page is dedicated to her. She inspires me everyday to live a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. I want to create a healthy environment for her. With my passion for nutrition and fitness, I hope I can spread awareness about PWS and create healthy recipes for her to enjoy with never feeling deprived. She has given me new hope to move forward with my passion in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. My focus will be on childhood obesity, emphasizing in PWS. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all! ***Please note I am not a Registered Dietitian. I would classify myself as a "nutrition snob." I do all of this because I love learning about food and fitness. All the recipes posted are tired and can be adjusted to your lifestyle. ***
