Casseroles are a favorite of mine and this low carb chicken casserole doesn’t disappoint! It’s loaded with cauliflower rice, broccoli, chicken, cheese, and bacon! Pure comfort food!
I’m a Midwestern girl through and through.
What does this mean?
Well, it means that I put ranch dressing on ev.ery.thing. Like, EVERYTHING.
It also means that, back before I was all low carb, I ate a whole heck of a lot of corn on the cob.
And, most importantly, it means that casseroles are my life.
I’m sorry, but there is just something comforting and homey about a 9×13 dish full of cheesy goodness.
This cauliflower rice casserole surprised me. I knew I was going to like it when I was throwing it together the first time, but I was surprised by just how perfect it was.
A low carb casserole that makes the whole family happy? Yes, please.
Cauliflower Rice Casserole:
You can use fresh cauliflower and rice it yourself for this recipe or you can use a bag of frozen cauliflower rice. Either will work fine, but I almost always use the frozen cauliflower rice. It’s just easier.
We’re going to start by cooking the cauliflower rice. Follow the directions on the bag or steam your fresh cauliflower.
Cooking the rice first means we’ll avoid the casserole getting too much liquid from the veggies.
While the cauliflower is cooking, you’ll also want to steam some broccoli and fry some bacon.
Add the steamed cauliflower rice and broccoli to a mixing bowl along with some cooked, shredded chicken, crumbled bacon, eggs, cheddar, and your seasonings.
Mix it all up and toss it in a 9×13 baking dish.
I usually sprinkle a little extra cheese on top for good measure. 😉
This will bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
What comes out of your oven is pure comfort food!
This low carb casserole is a total keeper!
