Chicken and green bean Ricotta bake – RECIPE

Chicken and green bean Ricotta bake

1 breast of chicken baked and diced (or one larger can of chicken breast)
1 can of whole green beans  (they are the most tender)
5 eggs
1 cup part skim (or whole) Ricotta Cheese
1 cup shredded cheese, I use sharp cheddar
1 small can mushrooms
½ a medium onion
½ a medium green or red pepper
¼ -½ teaspoon diced garlic
Olive oil
Your choice of seasonings (I used Montreal Chicken and Zesty Mrs Dash)

In a large bowl mix together the ricotta, the shredded cheese and the eggs until well mixed.
In a sauce pan sauté the onions, bell peppers, and drained mushrooms in 1 teaspoon of Olive Oil until tender then toss in the garlic at the last minute to just barely brown.  Add the cooked chicken to the vegetable mix and drain well and allow to cool a few minutes.
Add the vegetable mix to the large bowl with the cheese/egg mix and the green beans (I use whole because they are small and tender then slice the entire can’s worth a few times).
Stir the entire thing together and add the seasons of your choice
Place in an oiled baking dish and bake at 350* for 35 mins, check for doneness by sticking a butter knife into the mix, if it comes out clean allow to sit for 5 to 10 mins and serve, if not allow it to cook another 10 mins and retest.
