This CHICKEN BROCCOLI ALFREDO BAKE is pure comfort food, but instead of being loaded with carbs, it’s loaded with veggies! Broccoli, cauliflower rice, and juicy chicken all drowned in my easy, homemade Alfredo sauce. It doesn’t get tastier than this!
I know that I’m a low carb food blogger and if there is one thing I should be used to, it’s that cauliflower is magic and can basically do anything.I’m still amazed at how well it works with just about every flavor in all manner of recipes. Whether I’m using it in my low carb chicken casserole or my cauliflower mac and cheese, my kids gobble it up, Chad asks me to repeat the recipe, and I’m left like, y’all, you know that’s cauliflower right?! 😉
After testing out this chicken broccoli alfredo casserole a few times, I think I’ve found my family’s newest dinner obsession.
“Can you make that chicken broccoli alfredo thing again with the cauliflower rice?”
Yes. Yes, I can.

Tips & Tricks:
If you have leftover, cooked chicken, feel free to use it here! We often season a bunch of chicken breasts with Tony Chachere’s (affiliate link – this is our favorite seasoning blend for basically everything!) and cook in a skillet with a tiny bit of oil. We eat those chicken breasts all week long and use it in recipes like this.
Using the ‘steam in bag’ type of frozen cauliflower rice works great. You can also use frozen broccoli if you like it…my whole family is just picky and we LOVE fresh broccoli, but kind of hate frozen broccoli. They’re basically two different foods, if you haven’t tried both fresh and frozen. 😉
You certainly could use a jar of Alfredo sauce if you wanted to cut time, but my homemade version is quick, easy, and is made with real ingredients. Highly recommend it, if you have the 5 minutes it takes to stir together.
Serve this up with a side salad with my homemade Italian dressing.
