Chicken Broccoli "Rice" Casserole


This recipe is so easy to make! Your family will love this healthier low carb version of chicken broccoli and rice casserole! Perfect for a quick weeknight meal! Using steamable bags of cauliflower rice and broccoli makes prepping this meal a cinch! Pick up a whole rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store, remove the skin and bones, and chop up the breast meat to save time if you are in a hurry! This is a slightly adapted version that Brittany Hanson Luder shared with me! Thank you Brittany!


Begin by microwaving the frozen cauliflower rice and broccoli florets following the directions on the back of the packages. Measure out the appropriate amounts needed and place in a large bowl. 


Add chopped chicken, 3/4 cup cheese, reduced fat alfredo sauce and grated parmesan cheese. I used mozzarella cheese but cheddar cheese would be yummy too! Stir until everything is combined. 


Pour mixture into a 13" x 9" casserole dish and spread evenly.


Top with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese and bake for about 15 to 20 min or until cheese has melted and casserole is warm.


Divide into 3 portions. You can have 1/3 of this casserole! Make sure you are hungry! It is a lot of food!


This casserole dish did not disappoint and is literally ready in less than 30 min! Comfort food at it's best!
