Chicken Casserole Recipe?

Ya'll know those recipes where you put basically put chicken, cream of chicken soup, rice, and maybe some parmesan cheese into a casserole?

Has anyone ever come up with a really tasty LC sub, using cauliflower as rice?
Preferably one that is thrown together easily LOL

I found the one below online... but its hard to guage if it will come out creamy enough (?)..... although the carbs and calories are great.
(Its so hard for me to balance out using cream and cheese and not overblowing my calorie limits)

Thanks for any suggestions!

1 pound boneless chicken breasts

Sugar, you could try making Scalloped Cauliflower and Green Beans and add chicken to it.....that would be creamy and easy.

I have a recipe that is totally wonderful and I am eating it today..... It has the consitancey of Heaven...

Here goes:

3 cups cut up or shredded cooked chicken
1/4 bag spicy pork rinds
16 oz Shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 bag of frozen cauliflower, or brocolli or mix or whatever veggie you like
1 tbs. minced dried onions
1 tsp. minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste

crush pork rinds in a plastic bag with a can or however works for you...spread 3/4 of that on bottom of 13x9 baking dish or 9x9 deep dish baking pan. In a bowl mix chicken 3/4 of the cheddar and the cooked chicken and spread over crushed pork rinds. In a bowl mix mayo, sour cream, chicken broth onion, garlic and salt and pepper. Pour over mixture in baking pan. Place in oven at 325 for 20 min. pull out pour remaining Cheese over top and sprinkle remaining crushed pork rinds over the top. Bake for another 7 to 10 min. Take out let sit for 10 min then eat.

I have a room mate that is a very picky eater wont eat 1/2 of the ingredients in the casserole. She came home one pm I was in the shower and the casserole was cooling. She "picked at it" when I came outd 1/4 of the casserole was gone... I asked her why she ate things she hated.... she :blush: and said... I didnt know what was in it but this is awesome.... . I made it so she wouldnt eat it figuring it was safe since she didnt like half the ingredients...so much for that thought

The one I posted is a combination of a few on linda sues site I wanted it creamier than the ones I found so I combined. Found that using cream cheese didnt make stuff creamy enuff... and too dry.

Andrea, I have a couple questions. First, what size bag of pork rinds are you using? Second, when do you add the cauliflower? Did you mean to say to add it where you said "In a bowl mix chicken 3/4 of the cheddar and the cooked chicken..."? I thought maybe since you said to add chicken twice perhaps the first "chicken" was supposed to be the cauliflower.

Umm yes it was sposed to say add the cauliflower and not the chicken twice and I use a 5 oz bag of pork rinds (thought thats the only size they come in unless you buy the individual size :blush: ) around here anyways. And no I just put the forzen cauliflower or brocolli in when I mix together the chicken cheese and cauliflower... i have also added canned sliced mushroom...and its actually a combination of recipes I found on your website... of which ALL are sooooo yummy!

I found this recipe in a church cookbook my mom gave me a few years ago - strange that it is actually her recipe and I never remember eating this growing up. The only changes I made were to omit 2 tablespoons of diced pimento (too fussy for me) and the potato chip topping.

2 c. cooked chicken, cubed (I used breasts)
2 c. chopped celery
1/3 c. chopped green pepper (can use red for more color)
3 green onions (original called for 2 T chopped onion)
1/2 c. mayo
2 T. lemon juice
1 t. salt
1/3 c. diced cheddar

mix together all ingredients except cheese. Put into a casserole dish and top with cheese. bake at 350 fro 45 minutes.

Totals from ****** - 1441 calories, 109 fat, 23 carbs, 96 protein, 6 fiber

For 1/4 of recipe - 360.25 calories, 27.25 fat, 5.75 carbs, 24 protein, 1.5 fiber for an ECC of 4.25 per serving

Andrea I tried your version of the Chicken Casserole recipe for supper tonight and it was just great. Dh and I both cleaned our plates. Good idea about the mushrooms, well next time.

Thanks

I have this in the oven right now. Cooked mixture for 20 min at 325 in a covered casserole dish. Didn't look like it was done so I took the cover off for 5 min. Mixture is still cold. Have upped the temp to 350.

Is the original 325 oven temp correct or a typo? Waiting for it to start bubbling a little bit before adding the last cheese and pork rind topping.

TIA

Answering my own question, after I upped the temp to 350, it took another 15 min for the chicken mixture to start bubbling then I put the rest of the cheese and pork rind on top and it was YUMMY !!!

Thanks luvdanrs for this great recipe.

I was going to ask you to make sure your oven was on Ovens are so fickle you never know with them. I am glad you enjoyed the casserole... it just hits the spot doesnt it. It is an awesome comfort food has that great consitancy that you usually dont get with just veggies and meat and cheese...that carby feeling without the carbs

I make a casserole with Tuna or chicken...

2 Cans Tuna or chicken
1 can cream mushroom soup
little bit of onion and green pepper
couple of handfulls of cheddar cheese or hotpepper cheese
1 T mayo
about a 1/3 cup Hoods countdown milk
and 1 cup cooked Dreamsfiled macaroni

Mix it all together and put a little more shredded cheese on top and put it in the oven at 325 for 30 minutes. I love it!
