Cauliflower isn’t always easy to incorporate into recipes. One of my favorite ways to eat it is to make a cauliflower and chicken casserole. It’s an healthy but filling dish. It’s easy to prep, the only downside is the cooking part which takes an hour so you can’t really do this recipe if you are hungry or in a hurry.
