Sweet Potato & Chicken Casserole

Neocate Junior, unflavored is used in preparation of this recipe. Adding Neocate to food is easy, fast and safe. It can also help you or your child to tolerate other foods better. When cooking with Neocate, be sure to let very hot foods cool down a little before adding Neocate and not to reheat dishes prepared with Neocate.

What you need:

  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • ⅓ cup ground chicken
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped or grated onion
  • ¼ cup finely chopped or grated carrot

  • 2 fl oz low-salt chicken broth
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp dairy-free spread
  • 2 Tbsp preferred bread crumbs
  • 2 scoops Neocate Junior, Unflavored

Directions:

  • Place sweet potato in small saucepan with water to cover, bring to a boil. Simmer until soft.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil and brown the chicken, stirring occasionally and breaking apart.
  • Add the onions, carrots and mushrooms and cook for 5-10 minutes, until the vegetables are softened and starting to brown.
  • Add the stock and bring to a simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat. Cool slightly and stir in one scoop of Neocate Junior.
  • Pour the water off to drain the sweet potato in the saucepan.
