Is is just me, or is it casserole weather? It seems like thatโ€™s all I want for dinner; so warm, comforting. Soul food, baby. And not to mention, when a whole30 casserole comes along that Iโ€™m obsessed with, itโ€™s pretty hard not to want to make another oneโ€ฆ already scheming my next casserole bake. What would you like to see?

I seriously think this is the best fall ever. All the burning reds, bright oranges, and popping yellows seem somehow more burning, bright, and popping this year!! It might have something to do with the fact that Iโ€™m getting healthier, but needless to say, I am soaking in every last bit of this beautiful season. Iโ€™ve been burring my nose in good books that put me to sleep early, breathing in the crisp air on my walks through the aspens, and drinking more tea than I have all year!

I made a โ€œfall bucket listโ€ in September, and as I was browsing over it the other day, I realize that all the to doโ€™s could be checked off! If you havenโ€™t made a fall bucket list, I highly suggest filling your weekends and mornings with glorious pumpkin foods, fun family activities, and finding ways to get outside and enjoy the season with those you love.

tested and true chicken cauli rice casserole

Anyway, about this casserole. I seriously hope you guys love it, because everyone in this house sure did! Between my parents they demolished half the pan, with a few servings each! Itโ€™s a gooder, filled with warm chicken, crispy casserole edges of baked cream sauce, and who would know that there are three different veggies stuffed in there!?

My dad thought that the cauliflower was normal rice, and when I told him that it was cauliflower he was shocked and said he loved it!โ€ฆ For someone who normally doesnโ€™t like cauliflower at all, he sure ate a lot! I think this is a good taste test to say, that this dish is pretty kid proof and family friendly. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cream sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Generously grease a 9" by 9" casserole pan with avocado oil (or olive oil).
  2. layer in the cauliflower rice, broccoli, chicken, and green chiles into the pan.
  3. In a medium sauce pan whisk together all the sauce ingredients, except the egg and tapioca flour. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  4. In a cup, whisk the egg and pour into the sauce while stirring continuously. The sauce will begin to thicken, continue to stir to avoid clumping.
  5. Next whisk in the tapioca flour and continue to simmer and whisk for about 1 minute until the sauce thickens and all the clumps are beaten out. Be careful to take it off the heat as soon as it starts to thicken, otherwise it will become too thick. Then pour the sauce over the casserole and bake on 400F for 45 minutes until the edges are browned.

    Iโ€™m cooking this now and itโ€™s been in the oven for 45 minutes. I went to take it out but itโ€™s super watery. I put it back in the oven to have it thicken up hopefully. I used frozen cauliflower and broccoli. What should I do? I donโ€™t want to waste it. I was excited to try it

    Made this last night for my husband and dinner guests who are non paleo and non whole 30 and they LOVED it. I did substitute the nutritional yeast for cheddar cheese because I didn’t have any nutritional yeast on hand and I used fresh veggies rather than frozen. We ate the whole pan, I ended up putting it in a 9×13 because the 9×9 was so full. Thumbs up for this one!

    I am curious as I am considering this Whole30 diet.. I thought diary was off limits but there is “full fat coconut milk” in this receipe..?

    I’ve made a few recipes from PGFE lately due to some allergies and I have yet to be disappointed. I made this last night and I cannot get over how good it is. No, you don’t understand. IT IS SO GOOD. It’s so unbelievably cheesy and tasty. I’m still in shock. For those unsure about the arrowroot flour, I used 1/4 cup of it instead of tapioca starch and it worked PERFECTLY.

    This looks so yummy ! I want to try it this week forsure. I had one question tho. When you say layer them in the pan is there a certain order i should put the veggies in? Or just got it all Iโ€™m?

    Can I use frozen cauliflower rice? Don’t want to cook it prior and have it ‘mush’ out on me, but Im also concerned about the liquid as it thaws and cooks in the oven ๐Ÿ™‚

    Iโ€™m trying this with Wheat Flour instead of tapioca. I am not on a strict gluten free or paleo diet but I like to use the recipes once and a while to stay healthy within my limits.

    I’m making this dish tonight and was confused how to make the cauliflower rice??? There wasn’t instructions for it for us need everything step by step kinda cooks lol help!!!

      Hi Alicia, to make the cauliflower rice, chop a head of cauliflower into bite size chunks and run them through the food processor until they reach rice like consistency. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can also buy this at Trader Joes, whole foods, etc.

    This looks really good and I can’t wait to try it. Is there an alternative I can use instead of coconut milk? Coconut milk has a lot of saturated fat which I am trying to stay away from so even if I can just cut the amount in half that would be great. Please let me know. Thanks.

    I want to make this tonight. The recipe says to use cooked cubes of chicken. If I cook my chicken prior to making this, will the cooked chicken not dry out from baking for 40 minutes?

    Did anyone try this with the frozen riced cauliflower? I wanted to make this tonight but that’s all i have. Should I steam the frozen broc and riced cauliflower in bowl for a min or two and drain out the water or just throw it all in frozen? Thanks for any advice!

    Just made it tonight. Thought it was very good and the husband gave it a thumbs up. I am wondering why the chicken was cooked before and not during the 45 minutes. I feel like the chicken is a bit dry. Do you think you could put the chicken pieces in raw and let it cook in the casserole?

      Hi Sheryl, I usually have pre-cooked chicken in my freezer all the time, so I just use that. But if you don’t have that you can just bake with olive oil on 350 till cooked through. Boiling chicken is also great!

    Iโ€™m making 2 of these ahead to freeze….. do you think I should freeze after baking them, or freeze before baking…… wondering if the cauliflower would do better one way or the other…..

    as a personal preference, i just added more chicken and only used half of the rice. I loved this recipe! I miss cheese so much and felt like the sauce tasted so similar! Thank you!

    Wow! Scrumptious! I don’t cook a lot these days. (Though I love healthy food!) Just harvested Organic Broccoli from my mini Winter garden (Yep, in February, San Diego!), and thought I’d try your recipe. This Sauce is incredible!!! Just looked at the questions and saw that someone used Coconut flour. Was about to try that, but found some Rice and Tapioca Flour Mixed at TJ’s. Thanks for inspiring me to cook!!

    Alicia

    Thank you for this recipe, Kaylie! I am making it for the second time tonight! Last time I made the sauce as the recipe is written. My husband liked the casserole just fine. For me, the spices and nutritional yeast flavors were a little strong. Tonightโ€™s sauce had me licking the spoon after the casserole went in. For those who might like a less seasoned version: I used 3Tablespoons of nutritional yeast, 2teaspoons Italian herb and 1/2 tsp of poultry seasoning. Then I added several tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley because i had it in the fridge and it was going to be wasted otherwise. I thought the fresh parsley added a nice bright note to the sauce.

    I don’t have any dietary restrictions so I wasn’t planning on making the cream sauce from scratch. Is there a particular store bought cream sauce that you would recommend and at what quantity? Thank you!

    Are the fat/calories listed per serving? And that would be six servings in this? It was delicious, but I think my kids and I went way overboard on how much we ate!!!!

    This was really good! It had the nice comforting feeling of a casserole but didn’t have the super heavy feeling afterwards since it’s so much veggies! I’m not a huge fan of cali-rice but I am trying out more recipes to try to get more into veggies into our diet and this was a win! Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi! I don’t leave many reviews but I felt like I had to on this one. I’ve made this casserole MANY times. And each time, I fall more in love with it. I did the whole 30 and I made this casserole for 2 weeks of the whole 30 for lunch. But I wanted to share my tid bits, in case they help someone else. I saute the chicken first, but I cook it about half way. I use Trader Joes frozen cauliflower. I don’t cook it, but leave it out while I cook the chicken so it’s fallen apart some and I can spread it in the dish. I use 2 packages. I layer the chicken over the top, then the chilies, then I add a bunch of fresh sauteed mushrooms, which I love. I then add a package or two of frozen broccoli over top. I pour the sauce over top and bake it until brown. This makes a ton. I let it cool, throw a lid on it and throw it in the fridge and eat it for the week. It does get a bit watery due to the cauliflower, but honestly, it helps out when reheating. I don’t double the sauce, and I probably could. Also, when I use the coconut milk, I use only half of the solid part of the can to cut down on the fat. It does NOT taste like coconut at all. Hope this helps yall, totally make it – and make it your own!

      Oh – and I only cook the chicken half way before I bake it so when I bake it, it doesn’t dry out. It always ends up completely cooked and still moist.

    Iris

    Hi I want to try this recipe but do I have to cook the chicken before baking it? Has anyone tried putting in the chicken raw? Please let me know thanks!

    I have almost cooked mine 1 1/2 hr bc it still has liquid. I left my husband to pull it out bc I had added another 20min. I donโ€™t know why mine has some much liquid. Iโ€™m a vet to cooking. Iโ€™m worried now that itโ€™s going to make veggies really soft.

    • 89
      Kaylie

      Hi Michele, it sounds like your cauliflower had too much liquid- did you use frozen cauliflower rice? If so, sometimes it gets really icy in the freezer and results in more liquid when thawed or cooked. My advice is to strain your cauliflower before hand to get less liquid. Also, make sure you are using full fat coconut milk! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I used arrowroot in place of the tapioca ans sadly the sauce got a little gummy. Iโ€™m hoping as it bakes that maybe t wonโ€™t be noticeable onceโ€™s itโ€™s combined with all of the other ingredients. Or do you think itโ€™s a lost cause?
