For the filling:
1 small chicken breast, cooked and shredded
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced celery
1/4 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup diced bell peppers
1/2 cup cauliflower florets
1/2 cup chicken broth (low-sodium)
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon coconut flour (or any low-carb flour of your choice)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
For the cauliflower crust:
1 cup cauliflower rice
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 egg, beaten
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
In a skillet, sauté the diced onion, celery, carrots, and bell peppers over medium heat until they start to soften.
In a food processor, pulse the cauliflower florets until they resemble rice-like consistency.
Add the cauliflower rice to the skillet with the sautéed vegetables and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
In a small bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, almond milk, coconut flour, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into the skillet and stir well.
Cook the mixture for 5-7 minutes, or until it thickens slightly.
Add the shredded chicken to the skillet and stir until well combined.
Transfer the chicken and vegetable filling to a small oven-safe dish.
In a separate bowl, combine the cauliflower rice, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, dried oregano, and beaten egg. Mix well.
Spread the cauliflower crust mixture over the top of the chicken and vegetable filling, ensuring it covers the entire surface.
Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust turns golden brown and crispy.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
