CHICKEN, MUSHROOM AND ONION AU GRATIN










CHICKEN, MUSHROOM AND ONION AU GRATIN

Delicious flavors of fried mushrooms and onions mixed with diced rotisserie chicken, a creamy sauce, grated Mozzarella on top and a Crispy Crumb Topping. This Crispy Crumb Topping is useful instead of breadcrumbs (tastier) for topping a variety of different casseroles.  I hope you will discover it here and find it useful in your low-carb cooking repertoire.

4 cups diced cooked rotisserie chicken (1 L)
2 tbsp olive oil, divided (30 mL)
1 lb sliced mushrooms (0.45 kg)
1 cup chopped onion (250 mL)
1 bell pepper, chopped (optional)
1 tbsp minced garlic (15 mL)
2 tsp dried parsley (10 mL)
1 tsp salt (5 mL)
1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)
1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese, OR (250 mL)
  more, to taste
Creamy Sauce:
8 oz cream cheese (250 g)
1/4 cup low-carb milk, OR whipping cream (60 mL)
1/2 cup water (125 mL)
2 tbsp olive oil (30 mL)
2 tsp Montreal Chicken seasoning (10 mL)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)
1/4 tsp black pepper (1 mL)
Crispy Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese (125 mL)
1/3 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR (75 mL)
  almond flour and 1 tbsp (15 mL) coconut flour
2 tbsp butter, melted (30 mL)

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

In large bowl, set aside chicken.  In nonstick frying pan, in 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil, over medium heat, stir-fry mushrooms unitl moisture has evaporated and mushrooms are browning.  Add mushrooms to the chicken.  In remaining olive oil, cook onions over medium high heat until softening.  At this point add bell pepper if using.  When the peppers are softening, add garlic and dried parsley, salt and black pepper and stir to combine.  Stir-fry a little while longer.  Add cooked vegetables to the chicken.

Creamy Sauce: In nonstick frying pan, combine cream cheese (broken up into pieces), low-carb milk, OR whipping cream, water, olive oil, Montreal chicken seasoning, salt and black pepper.  Stir occasionally until sauce is thickened and smooth.  Pour over chicken and vegetables and combine well.  Turn out into a 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33 cm) casserole dish.  Sprinkle with grated Mozzarella cheese and bake 25 minutes.  Bake Crispy Crumb Topping in pie dish alongside the casserole and check up on it after 20 minutes.  It should be golden brown and it will crisp up more as it cools.

Crispy Crumb Topping: In small bowl, combine Mozzarella cheese, Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR alternative and melted butter.  Sprinkle in glass pie dish and press down to fill the dish.
