Chicken and “Rice” Casserole

by Deliciously Organic on April 12, 2013

Sometimes it’s nice to go back to the basics. Chicken and rice – we’ve all had it in some form or fashion. When I was a kid, it was white rice mixed with cream of mushroom soup and shredded chicken. It showed up at just about every pot luck and there’s just something warm and comforting about a basic casserole.

Cauliflower is the superstar of this dish. Pulsed in the food processor until it’s the size of rice, it brings the onion, bacon, mushrooms and chicken together to form a great comfort meal.

While we’re on the topic of going back to the basics, I recently discovered La Chamba cookware. This extremely durable clay cookware/bakeware brings centuries of tradition to your kitchen. I’m shocked at their versatility – use them on the stove top, in the oven, on a gas or charcoal grill, even wood-fired ovens or over an open fire!

Sustaining Cultures asked me if I would tell you about their clay bakeware, and when I opened the box of dishes they sent, I was amazed at how gorgeous the pieces are. Truly! I left them on the counter for a few days so I could gaze at them when I walked by. If you’re looking for some beautiful cookware or bakeware for your kitchen that’s made with safe materials, this is a great option. Any of their pieces would make a lovely gift.

Chicken and “Rice” Casserole (Grain-Free)

Serving Size: Serves 8

Chicken and “Rice” Casserole (Grain-Free)

If your bacon is relatively lean, you may want to add a tablespoon or two of butter when you add the cauliflower to the pan (remember, it’s good to eat saturated fats with your vegetables so the body can assimilate the fat soluble nutrients. For those who follow a dairy free or Paleo diet, I know the cashew “cheese” sounds a bit odd, but trust me - it’s fantastic!


Ingredients

  • 4 pieces bacon, chopped

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • 12 ounces button mushrooms, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Celtic sea salt
  • 1 large head cauliflower, “riced”*

  • 1 1/2 pounds cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (or for dairy free, Gaps or Paleo use cashew “cheese”) 

  • 1 cup raw cheddar (omit for dairy free, Gaps, Paleo)
  • 4 green onions, chopped

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until crispy. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon from pan leaving the bacon drippings in the pan. Add onions and mushrooms to the bacon drippings and cook, about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until mushrooms have released their moisture and are just turning golden brown on the edges. Make a well in the center of the pan and add the thyme and salt. Stir in the center of the pan until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add cauliflower and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken, cooked bacon and sour cream (or cashew cheese) then stir until combined. Season with sea salt to taste. Pour mixture into an 11 x 7 - inch buttered dish (or individual dishes as pictured above). If using cheese, sprinkle with cheese and bake for 20 minutes or so until top is just turning golden brown. Sprinkle with green onions. Serve hot.

*To rice the cauliflower - Cut the cauliflower into large pieces (about 2-inch). Place in a food processor and pulse for 7-8 one-second pulses until the size of rice. Click here to see a photo.

I’ve tried to add cauliflower to meals in many different ways, but it never wins over my kids or husband! I’m not going to give up though!

As luck would have it, Chicken and Rice! I am like you (and most everyone else) in that we had the canned creamy soup about once a week when I was growing up. This week, though, I am going to give the cauliflower version a whirl.

This casserole recipe sounds wonderful for the rainy cold Pacific Northwest region! I’ve been whipping cauliflower to substitute for mashed potatoes for a while and my kids almost prefer it to regular potatoes. Another casserole/side dish we enjoy is roasted red peppers, diced over spaghetti squash and tossed with olive oil, garlic and other Italian seasonings… a glass of wine…. topped with parma cheese….mmmmm, delicious! This cookware looks wonderful and reminds me of the types of casserole cookware found in the French countryside! I would love to experiment cooking and baking with them!

Hi!

I’m making this yummy dish for dinner but I wasn’t sure if I add the bacon back in at some point or not. It doesn’t say in the recipe so is the bacon only needed for the drippings?

Thanks!! :)

Reply

Kylie D April 23, 2013 at 12:13 pm

Very delicious! I left out the onion, added garlic. Used 3/4 C (dry measurement) rice instead of cauliflower. 1 small container of yogurt instead of sour cream and cooked it only in the skillet. I will be making this again very soon!! Thanks so much for creating yummy recipes :)

Reply

Shannon May 1, 2013 at 4:17 pm

I made this tonight. My 8 1/2 year old was giving me fist pumps all through dinner telling me this is his favorite recipe I’ve ever made. It did take some time to prepare, but it’ll be one I make again! The kids don’t like mushrooms, unfortunately so I dumped in a bunch of peas. Makes a lot so we’ll have leftovers tomorrow night. Win!

Reply

Deliciously Organic May 2, 2013 at 8:05 am

Ha! I love the “fist pumps”. :) My daughter does the same when she likes something. I like the substitution for the mushrooms. Great idea!

Reply

Kaylin May 6, 2013 at 5:37 pm

Am I crazy or is there no step to add the bacon to the recipe? Are you just making the bacon to render out the fat for cooking the mushrooms? I’m sick and a little extra tired, so maybe I’m missing it! I swear I read the recipe four extra times just in case!

Hi! I am wondering if this casserole would hold up as a freezer meal?
