Southwest Chicken Casserole
I have to apologize for the photo, I know it isn't the prettiest dish we have ever made but it was pretty darn tasty! Our sister-in-law asked us to HEALTHIFY a chicken and rice casserole...and she gave me a pretty blank slate, so I hope she likes this version! For those of you not from Minnesota or from a Scandavian descent, a casserole is usually made from noodles or rice, some sort of meat, cheese and usually cream of "something" soup. The veggies are typically hard to find and the processed food is usually a staple.
In an attempt to healthify the recipe, the swaps that we made was "riced" cauliflower and instead of creamy soup we used coconut milk. Then we loaded it up with some chicken breast and tomatoes. Although the cauliflower rice on it's own doesn't have the same taste as rice, when combined in a dish like this it takes on almost the exact same texture. Plus there is a enough flavor in a dish like this that you really do lose that cauliflower taste.
