Keto Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole

Easy, cheesy, and delicious is how I describe this dish – without the carb overload of course!
We won’t be using any rice, flour, or peas in this recipe. Just a small amount of xanthan gum, riced cauliflower, and broccoli for a bit of green. A pinch to make with leftover rotisserie chicken, and a family favorite without the guilt.

  1. Made this tonight and enjoyed it! I was wondering if I was supposed to top it with cheese? I ended up topping it with the other 1/2 cup of parmesan.
