Loaded Chicken and Cauliflower Casserole (THM – S)

Chicken Cauli Casserole

My husband recently pointed out that we go through approximately $50 worth of cheese every month. Ridiculous, I know! But every person in our family is a major cheese-aholic. Even my 14-month old gets all excited when he sees me bring the big block of cheese out of the fridge!! This recipe may be part of the reason we go through so much cheese, but it tastes delicious! You are more than welcome to reduce the amount of cheese in this recipe. However, let me warn you, it may take away from some of the excitement!

Loaded Chicken and Cauliflower Casserole
THM – S

2 Chicken Breasts
1 head Cauliflower
8 slices Bacon
1 1/2 cups Shredded Cheese
4 oz Cream Cheese
1/4 cup Green Onions
1/4 cup Sour Cream
1/2 tsp. Garlic
1/4 tsp. Chili Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Pepper
Parsley

Boil chicken until cooked through (about 20 minutes). Cut up cauliflower into 1-inch pieces, removing leaves and stems; boil until soft (about 15 minutes). Cook bacon until crispy. Meanwhile, soften cream cheese in microwave in a large bowl for 45 seconds. Add in a half cup shredded cheese, onions, sour cream, and spices. Shred the chicken and chop up the bacon. Add the chicken and bacon to the cream cheese mixture. Drain cauliflower and add into mixture. Mix well, ensuring the cauliflower is in bite-sized pieces. Pour into a casserole dish and top with remaining shredded cheese and parsley. Bake uncovered at 350F for 20 minutes. Serves 6

    Yum! I used a bag of frozen cauliflower (cooked in microwave) and a bit more chicken. It was really good! I was out of green onion so I can’t wait to make it again with that addition. Thanks!

    Made this for dinner tonight thinking I’d get several lunches out of the leftovers. Wrong. The family ate it up and there’s only a tiny little serving left. It was really good. I haven’t read the THM book yet so I don’t know what an S meal is. This was a little more dairy heavy than I normally make our dinners but its going in my book of meals we rotate for sure. Makes good comfort food when you don’t want to just completely blow your eating.
