Grilled Chicken Shepherd's Pie with Low Carb Cauliflower Colcannon

That's a mighty big name for this recipe and the recipe is somewhat detailed, but it is worth every ounce of effort.  Especially if you love shepherd's pie and are on a low carb eating plan.

I have to show you my newest kitchen gadget that I bought at the class this past week.  It chops garlic and make pretty quick work of 4 cloves!  I love it!  It is so easy and you pop it right into the dishwasher (top shelf for cleanup).  It looks like a cute little robot.


Since the sneak peek photo has some of you anxious for the recipe, I'll not spend a lot of time on an intro, other than this is a low carb version of a recipe I received in an authentic Irish cooking class this past week.  It was a fun class with several tasty dishes, but hands down this one was my favorite.  So much so that I had to alter it for low carb.  The dish we sampled was made with smoked chicken thighs and the smoky flavor came through the dish.  I had grilled chicken breasts in the fridge from earlier in the week that I chopped up and put into this dish.  I also substituted the peas with asparagus and added celery.

This was my first go at making mashed cauliflower.  Up until today, I've not been fan, but this dish has won me over.  

I hope you enjoy the recipe!

My career is in IT.  Cooking and photography are among a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, which is most weekends I tie on my apron and exercise my creativity by trying new recipes and adapting them to my tastes. I also have a passion for photography that I incorporate by taking photographs to go along with the recipes I post on my blog.  
I also enjoy travel, both near and abroad. Meeting new people, new experiences and cultures and oh, not to mention the food! I hope you enjoy my blog.
