Cauliflower Chicken Casserole

December 20, 2013





  1. This looks really good. I think I might try it. I’m pretty much addicted to cauliflower these days, only I tend to just cook it up and sprinkle some parmesan on it, so this looks like more work but more of a meal than a side.

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing! I spread the cooked cauliflower in the bottom of the baking dish and then spread the chicken and cheese mixture over the top of it. It worked great!

    I currently have this baking in the oven & it smells delicious. I also added chopped zucchini & red onions as well as the vegetables listed.

    Sounds awesome but I wonder about the nutrition information?

      Hi Dawn,

      Unfortunately I don’t do the nutritional facts for my recipes. I know that there are several sites that allow you to plug in the ingredients to get that info.

    The printing did not come out good. It is all blurry. Is there something you can do to fix it.

    I will be making this as per the recipe but tonight I was looking for something to use with what I had and it was great! Very versatile recipe so that’s a keeper for me. I had Monterey Jack and Gouda for cheese, 3 frozen spinach balls, 1 c frozen peas instead of mushrooms and leftover turkey for the chicken. Thanks you for adding to my recipe box 🙂

    Wow! What a surprise! I must clarify…I’m always spending weekends making casseroles to put away in the freezer for us to eat on those nights when I don’t have time to cook. I had labeled this correctly, “Cauliflower Chicken Casserole”. But I always make the “Loaded Baked Potato” casserole, and use faux mashed potatoes, topped with chicken, so that’s what I thought it was when I pulled it from the freezer. Upon baking and uncovering, I wondered, what? This has something green, that looks likes spinach. Well, we ate it, and fell in love with it! So I went to my Pinterest page and found that I had pinned it, and made it, and stuffed the poor casserole in the freezer for about 9 months. Needless to say, while we ate it, I was calling it “mystery casserole”…no more, now that I know what this is. Making again!

    Looks like the ingredients list is missing

    Thanks for bringing this topic up. I was searching for up to date information on this theme for a
    few days, I found only this page Now I’m satisfied as I have finally
    reached your post. I enjoy how you present and argue all the details as well as your
    overall writing style. Sometimes, there is a lack
    of time to read long pieces, but yours is brief and concise,
    I spent only a few minutes to read the whole article.
    It is essential, since nobody has enough time to read.

    This looks yummy and I have my older Brother and his wife along with her Mom and a dad coming coming for a visit. With diabetics to feed this is going to work out fantastic. I think I’ll make it tonight and do a test run knowing is gonna be great. Thank you for posting this!

    I made this adding Campbell’s Cheddar Cheese soup (only used shredded for the toping) and a some sour cream. Don’t like mushrooms so I left those out.
    This is what I call “comfort food” … delicious!

    Hi, I had cauliflower and chicken breasts in the fridge and was looking for a recipe when I found yours. Had to make some mods, I had arugula instead of spinach and no gruyere but feta and parm. I also diced two tomatoes that needed to be eaten and tossed them in. My guys loved this dish! There were no leftovers. Definitely going into my recipe box. Thank you.

  13. Ann says:

    This worked out well for me as a new way to use cauliflower. Creamy and delicious. I did add some red pepper flakes and white wine. I plan to use the leftovers by toss it all together with linguine noodles. Can hardly wait.

  14. Lisa says:

    This was very tasty but the time estimate was way off. It says 40 minutes total time but just the last step includes 40 minutes in the oven. Once you add prep time and the stovetop cook time, it took at least an hour. I used half cauliflower and half broccoli (including some of the spear stems), which was very good. I also added a bit of Trader Joe’s Mushroom & Company Umami seasoning to amp up the mushroom flavor. Yummy, but plan on more time (and quite a few dirty dishes).

  15. Kathleen says:

    This is a new family favorite! Delicious!
    I added some grated parmesan to the panko, (there’s no such thing as too much cheese!).

  16. Justina says:

    Had lots of Cauliflower and chicken to use up amd stumbled across this recipe. I love to cook and try new things. First time making a little more advanced casserole dish ( i suck at following instructions haha) but it looks yummy. Mines a little runny but next time ill perfect it

  17. Cindy says:

    DELICIOUS! Going into our regular menu rotation! The only change I made was a bag of shredded gruyere/swiss. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!

  18. Lindsay says:

    Any suggestions on how to do this with raw chicken?

    Saving money is definitely a priority, especially during the holiday season like Christmas when expenses can pile up. However, if you find yourself short on funds for the festivities, considering a payday loan might seem like a viable option to bridge that gap.

    During Christmas, when there’s an added pressure to buy gifts, plan gatherings, and cover various expenses, a payday loan could offer a quick solution to ensure you can still celebrate without compromising on the joy of the season. It’s a way to access immediate cash if you’re facing unexpected financial constraints.

    That said, while a payday loan like this can provide that needed relief, it’s crucial to approach it with caution. Being mindful of the repayment terms, interest rates, and only borrowing what you can comfortably pay back is key.

    Made this today January 3rd 2024.
    Was good but needs A LOT more seasoning, pepper nutmeg to compliment the spinach ,just more flavor generally.
    Anyone else have a problem with the fresh mushrooms and spinach releasing too much water
    during baking and the whole thing being a little soupy??

  21. Kirsten says:

    This looks good.. am going to try! Your photos show a pan larger than a 9 x 9.. did you use a 9 x 13?

  22. I made this tonight for dinner. The flavors are good but my casserole had at least 1/2 or more liquid in the bottom of the casserole dish when it came out of the oven. I followed the recipe exactly. What do you think might have caused all the liquid or is that the way it is suppose to be?
    thank you
