Party Chicken

“Party Chicken” is a family recipe passed down from Blaine’s mother’s father’s mother. Her recipe is an easy casserole dish with chicken, rice, and a DELICIOUS party sauce. It is seriously the bomb. And that’s why I have taken “party chicken” into my own hands to recreate the dish without carbs. Because I can’t live without it!

I feel like I should add in a disclaimer here: You may read this recipe and say “Half a stick of butter? Mayo? Sour cream? Won’t all that fat make me fat?” And I say to you- Fear not! leave the carbs behind and the fat is completely harmless. Fat does not make you fat! Eating foods that are high in carbohydrates create sugar stores in your body that harbor any fat that you eat and in result, you get fat. Don’t blame the fat! Blaine and I learned that in cutting out all foods that are high in carbohydrates, we lose weight even while eating meals that are high in fat. So before you run away scared off, decide, instead, to cut out those mean carbohydrates and embrace the fat! And don’t worry, I replaced the grains with veggies so it’s already a healthier dish regardless (:

Kaitie’s Party Chicken Casserole

Serves: 4-6
Cook time: 70 Minutes total

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350° Melt butter in microwave and pour into a 9×13 casserole dish. Roll each chicken breast in the butter and salt and pepper both sides. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. While the chicken is cooking, boil cauliflower florets in water until softened.

Just a side note- I used this organic brand of cream of chicken soup that I found in the Nature’s Market at Kroger. It doesn’t have any unnecessary ingredients and it’s also gluten-free! DSCN1658

Shred your chicken into pieces and then you’ll layer your casserole dish. First add the cooked cauliflower and salt and pepper. Then, pour half of your soup mixture over top. Next add the shredded chicken and then the rest of the mixture.

Cover with foil and place back in the oven for 40 minutes or until browned and bubbly. DSCN1670

Isn’t it beautiful?! It’s delicious, easy, and a perfect dish to serve to any group of people. It will always be one of my favorites (:
