Growing up, my Mom would make us Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole twice a month at least! I associate this meal with comfort food and a feeling of home. The traditional casserole is made using a canned cream of soup, rice, cheese, and broccoli. Easy peasy, but not really THM friendly.
I’ve re-created this casserole to be an S so I’d have more liberty with satisfying ingredients. I’ve lightened this recipe by using cauliflower rice, which gives it a great casserole texture without pushing the dish into crossover territory. Trust me when I say that you won’t miss traditional rice as there are so many other great flavors happening! I used the cream of mushroom casserole from the THM Cookbook with the addition of a 1/4 t.xanthan gum to thicken it. I made my own cauliflower rice (Prep work took maybe 3 minutes total!), but if you’re short on time feel free to use one of the new cauliflower rice options available at stores.

This casserole is family-friendly and is sure to become one of your new favorite dishes! It makes one 9×13 inch pan FULL so it feeds a crowd.
