Herbed Chicken and Sweet Potato Casserole

Print

This deliciously simple herbed chicken and sweet potato casserole is featured in Further Food’s Eczema Handbook.  Feel free to experiment as you see fit– but the ingredients listed here are A-OK for folks with eczema.   We love this casserole because it’s a quick, nourishing weeknight meal that can easily be packed for lunch the next day.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This dish is loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants from the sweet potatoes and broccoli, which can help reduce and alleviate eczema symptoms. The addition of zinc and lean protein from the chicken also boosts immunity, and are far less inflammatory for the body than processed or fatty cuts of meat.

The olive oil used in this recipe is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which eczema sufferers are encouraged to incorporate into the diet regularly. This dish is naturally gluten-free, and can also be suitable for those with Celiac disease, or gluten intolerance.

    Hi, this says 736 calories per serving….is that right? Seems like a lot, wondering if that is for the entire recipe?
