Ingredients

  • 2 pounds skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 10-ounce bags frozen cauliflower rice (or 1 head of cauliflower, riced and cooked)
  • 1 16-ounce bag frozen broccoli cuts
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 3 cups, shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder

  • 1 cup shredded Italian blend cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a large 3-quart baking dish with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil. Set aside.
  • Slice chicken breasts in half horizontally to make them thinner, lightly coat them in olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Liberally season with salt and pepper and bake for 20 minutes.
  • While the chicken is baking, heat the bags of frozen cauliflower rice and broccoli according to package instructions. Discard any excess water or moisture.
  • Remove chicken from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Carefully chop baked chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  • In a large bowl, add cooked cauliflower rice, broccoli, chicken, eggs, mozzarella cheese, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and butter. Toss together until fully combined.
  • Transfer casserole mixture to the prepared baking dish and top with the remaining Italian blend cheese.
  • Bake for 50 minutes, until the cheese on top has fully melted and started to brown slightly. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
