This is a recipe that uses riced cauliflower rather than real rice. Since I have diabetes, I needed a good, hearty, low-carb casserole that my whole family would love. This was it! They do not miss the rice.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower, cover, and steam until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer cauliflower to a food processor; process using the shredding blade. Transfer cauliflower to the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Refill steamer with water and return to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, about 5 minutes. Arrange broccoli on top of the shredded cauliflower. Cover with cooked chicken.

  • Combine Alfredo sauce, 1 cup Cheddar cheese, onion soup mix, and garlic in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until hot and melted, about 2 minutes. Spread sauce over the chicken. Top with remaining Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly on top, 30 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If you desire, you can make a breaded topping by toasting bread crumbs in a little butter and spreading them on top. I've done this with low-carb bread.

Made this for the family last night and everyone LOVED it! Didn't see the 12 year old's face until she looked up after cleaning her plate in 10 minutes The only changes I made were that I cooked my chicken in the pressure cooker and shredded it. I also added minced onion to the cauliflower rice. Delish! Read More
