Potlucks are so much fun. I love getting together with a few friends and seeing what kind of dishes everybody brings. I am always the one who tends to overdo it, but a friend of mine recently showed me a better way of cooking for a potluck. Instead of doing too much and spending way too much time and effort on something, a potluck should be simple and fun.

So, while I spent an afternoon making dish after dish, my friend came in with a simple casserole of chicken and cauliflower. I knew this probably took her no time at all to produce, and everybody loved it, with plenty to go around. Next time, I am totally going to go easy on myself. But, for now, I had to share this amazing Keto Chinese chicken cauliflower rice casserole recipe.

Making Cauliflower Rice

My friend was kind enough to make her casserole Keto-friendly – mostly on my account. I am grateful that I am always going off about how great cauliflower rice is. To be fair, it’s not rice at all. But, cauliflower that has been cut up to rice size pieces.

The idea is a perfect replacement for the carb-heavy rice. It is easier and faster to cook, and carries so much more flavor. The trick is to use a food processor to blend the cauliflower into rice sized pieces. It cooks so easily in a pan that you can serve it with any meal.

The Beauty of Casseroles

Casseroles kind of gets a bad reputation. They are seen as a dish that mothers made in the ’70s and ’80s. The fact is, they were onto something. Being able to put all of the food in one dish and have a meal big enough to feed the family is kind of smart. You can even make these ahead of time and heat them up when dinner time rolls around.

I think it is high time that we brought casseroles back and made them cool again. How many parents do you know that stress about making and cleaning dinner almost every night? Casseroles are an old answer to these problems.

Some Other Ingredients to Try

This recipe is fantastic because it leaves so much room to play around with. There is seemingly no end to the combinations and ingredients that you can put into a casserole. Here are a few Keto-friendly options for you to try in your next dish:

  • Pork
  • Bacon
  • Ham
  • Broccoli
  • Tomatoes
  • Asparagus
  • Zucchini
  • Spinach
