How to Make Cauliflower Rice
You can make it yourself at home with a food processor or a box grater. This post explains how to get the cauliflower into those perfect rice like bits.
Green Giant also makes a Cauliflower Rice. I found it in the frozen veggie section of my grocery store. You can use a bag of it if you want to save on time.
How to Make Low Carb Chicken Divan
The first thing to do is to melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the onions and garlic and cook until softened. Stir in the garlic salt and cauliflower rice.
Cook until the cauliflower is softened (if using raw cauliflower). If you are using the frozen cauliflower rice, cook it in the microwave first according to package directions. Then, add it in, but you won’t have to make that extra step to cook it like you would if you were using it raw.
Stir in the chicken broth and cook covered for 10 minutes.
Stir in heavy cream and lemon juice. Reduce the heat to medium low. Let simmer for 10 minutes.
Stir in mayonnaise and remove from the heat.
Add half of the chicken into the cauliflower mixture. Spread the other half of the chicken on the bottom of an 8×8 casserole dish. Top with broccoli. Then top with the cauliflower mixture. Sprinkle on the cheddar cheese.
Cover the casserole with aluminum foil or a lid and bake for 30 minutes at 350F.
Remove the cover and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve hot. Sprinkle fresh parsley on top if you wish.
