pulling a slice of chicken Alfredo casserole out of a dish

Are Casseroles a staple in your household, too?

Casseroles can be so simple yet so delicious. Using shredded chicken and Lina’s alfredo sauce, this dish is already mouthwatering, but when you add cheese and veggies to the mix… OH MY! This is a great comfort food meal!

Hip Tips:

    • This is an easy casserole to make ahead of time and freeze for a busy weeknight.
    • Not a fan of spinach? No worries! Just add your favorite vegetable to the dish – for example, broccoli is a great alternative.
    • You can use a rotisserie chicken to cut your time in half. I always make a Crock-Pot full of chicken at the beginning of the week and then use it throughout the week to make different meals. It’s definitely a big time saver on busy weeknights! Another option is to boil your chicken like Marley does when making this amazing casserole.

    Hi there how many grams weight is the bag of frozen riced cauliflower? We have 250 & 300 gram containers of it.

  2. Yadira

    How many ounces for the cauliflower? I have a big bag from Costco! Or how many cups?

    • Ashley (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I used a 10oz. bag which is about 3 cups.

  3. Jenifer

    This was a hit at our house! Delicious!

    • Ashley (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks, Jenifer! I’m so glad to hear.

  4. Lorimezell

    Could you omit the cauliflower, or is there something else I could substitute? My husband isn’t a fan.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! We have also liked this with broccoli! Hope that helps!

  5. Karen

    Do you need to thaw the riced cauliflower first and or drain out any excess liquid?

    • Ashley (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hey Karen, you do not need to thaw out the cauliflower. The excess liquid is the perfect amount for the dish. Just throw it in and go 🙂

  6. Kimberly

    Do you cook the spinach first?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Nope! Be sure to mix in as pictured and listed above. Hope that helps!

  7. Marion

    Sounds great, made the sauce tonight and cooked the chicken. Casserole will be assembled tomorrow with a big salad perfect meal.

      Yay! That’s great to hear! Thanks for sharing how yummy it turned out with cauliflower and broccoli! 😋

  9. Jenny

    Can this be put in freezer before cooking?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes, that should be fine.

  10. Kristin

    What can I use in place of heavy cream ? I don’t like it at all. Also I’m doing keto do can not do regular milk

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Kristin! Oh Darn – we aren’t aware of a substitute that would also fit keto nutrition- thanks

  11. Adrin

    What can be substituted for the cauliflower?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Adrin! We have also made this with broccoli! Hope that helps!

  12. Kaitlyn

    Hello! I do not know much about cooking at all, hahaha, so I was wondering, how do you make your chicken in the crock pot at the beginning of the week? I would love to do this, but have no clue where to start on cook times, seasoning, etc. Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Kaitlyn! You can cook your chicken on low for 8 hours. It can be seasoned with salt and pepper or any favorite seasoning you prefer, for example taco seasoning. Hope this helps!

  13. Maddie

    About how much is one serving size?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Maddie! This recipe makes 8 servings. Hope that might help!

  14. Danisims

    This was so good! I used broccoli and canned chicken. I also forgot the onion. This will go into a regular rotation.

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Danisims! Thank you for the feedback❤ So glad to hear you liked it!
