Creamy Cheesy Chicken with Broccoli and Cauliflower

Chef's Notes: This is a variation on this recipe which was recommended by my cousin Amber. It satisfies that winter need for comfort food while still being low-carb and reasonably healthy.

Creamy Cheesy Chicken with Broccoli and Cauliflower
(serves 4)

1 pound boneless chicken thighs (or breasts)
2 C. chicken broth
2 tsp. parsley
2 tsp. tarragon
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 C. onion, minced
Fresh ground pepper
4 oz. cream cheese, cubed
4 oz. monterey (or cheddar) cheese, cubed
2 C. broccoli florets
2 C. cauliflower florets

Place chicken thighs, broth, onion, garlic, and spices in crock pot and cook on low 6 - 8 hours. Shred the chicken and drain off most of the liquid. Stir in the cream cheese and monterey cheese and cook on low for an additional 30 minutes to 1 hour.

While the chicken finishes cooking, steam the broccoli and cauliflower until crisp-tender.

To serve, divide the broccoli & cauliflower onto 4 plates and top with an equal portion of chicken mixture.
