I doubled this recipe and cooked on immediately and put in the freezer. I will be taking this out when company comes in a few weeks!
Made this, everyone loved it! Good idea about freezing it. It was so good and smelled great!!
I love your recipes!
I like this recipe, however I felt like there was a lot of water in the casserole. Still tasted great – so I give it 4 stars.
This was incredible! I loved it. YUMMY! I didn’t add the cayenne or garlic. I used frozen broccoli and cauliflower rice and just cooked those in the microwave, then added as directed. Very tasty dish.
I printed and saved this recipe to make last night. The recipe encompasses so many different flavors, it was really was enjoyable.
OMG, I love this! I substituted hemp hearts for the pork panko and it gave the topping a great slightly nutty flavor. I’ve been using hemp hearts instead of pork panko in your meatball recipes too. I like really it. This one is going into the regular dinner rotation along with your sheet pan fajitas and your meatballs. Pretty soon all my dinners may be from your site! Thanks for all your hard work that help us stick to our keto lifestyle without feeling deprived.
I was delighted to rediscover the leftovers of this in the freezer and I’m happy to report it was delicious and the broccoli was still crisp tender. Such a winner!
My family loved it! This will definitely be a regular in our home. I used frozen broccoli and cauliflower rice. Heated the broccoli in the microwave. Cooked the rice in the pot with the chicken. It was fine like that.
