What is chicken cauliflower casserole? An invention of a meal by my husband….the king of my castle. The best part about this dish is that you can play with it, too! Feel like adding some broccoli as well? Go for it. Maybe some tater tots, too? By all means.
The possibilities with this dish are endless and you can make a creation that is all your own!
This is one of my family’s favorite casseroles – once you’ve tried it, you’ll understand why. This is also a great way to add some greens in your picky eaters diet. It’s so tasty, they won’t even notice it includes vegetables!
