Trim Healthy Tuesdays: Chicken and Cauliflower Casserole S

    There's a few Chicken and Cauliflower casseroles, floating around the THM Pinterest pages. I really like the look of this one but I decided to give it a few little twists of my own! If your chicken is pre-cooked like mine (I usually make a big batch of chicken in my electric pressure cooker once a week and then store it in the fridge for quick meals) this meal will take about thirty minutes total for prep and cooking!

3 chicken breasts cooked and shredded
1 16 oz. pkg frozen cauliflower (you could use fresh if you have it)
2 cups shredded cheese (I used a cheddar and mozarella mix)
2 cloves garlic chopped
2 tsp onion powder
3/4 cup mini pepperoni (you could used chopped turkey bacon or sausage if you are opposed to pepperoni)
1/2 cup cream 
1 egg
salt, pepper and dried parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 350 mix all the ingredient together except for the 1/2 the cheese and the dried parsley.I did not thaw the cauliflower I just mixed it in frozen. 

 Place in a glass baking pan (I didn't grease mine, I found there was enough liquid in the frozen cauliflower that it didn't stick.) and top with extra cheese and parsley flakes. I cooked mine uncovered for 30 minutes until the everything was hot and bubbly. (cooking uncovered allows the frozen cauliflower to release some moisture into the stove without causing a very wet dish)

 This meal turned out VERY yummy and everyone ate it!! It served our family of 6 (including the baby) with 3 family members having seconds and no leftovers!
It was a super simple, yummy and fast!! Can't beat that! =)
