Description

This Low Carb Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole made with cauliflower rice is one of our new favorite dinners for the 21 Day Fix and for 2B Mindset!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of cauliflower rice, thawed if frozen (although I have done it from frozen in a pinch!)
  • 2 cups of broccoli florets
  • 1 lb of chicken tenderloins, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 4 tsp of rice flour or gf flour blend
  • 4 tsp vegan butter or ghee
  • 1 cup of unsweetened original almond milk
  • 1 1/3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (use Daiya for dairy free!)
  • Himalayan salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly spray a casserole dish with cooking oil. Add cauliflower rice to the bottom of the dish and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.
  2. Next, add the chicken and, again, sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Add in broccoli next. Set casserole dish aside.
  3. For the cheese sauce, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Sprinkle in the flour and whisk together. Slowly whisk in the almond milk, and continue to whisk until the mixture comes to a boil and begins to thicken. Once thickened, remove sauce from heat and stir in 1 cup of cheddar cheese until fully melted, adding salt to taste.
  4. Pour cheese sauce over casserole, using a rubber spatula or spoon to spread out the cheese. Top with remaining cheese and place in the oven for 45 minutes or until cheese starts to bubble.
  5. Set to a low broil to brown the cheese for 4-5 minutes before removing from the oven.
