Cheesy Chicken Broccoli and cauliflower casserole, Vanilla and Chocolate Biscotti

Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli & "Rice" Casserole

2 large chicken breasts
1 small onion, finely diced

3 cups of cauliflower rice

1 package of frozen broccoli pieces (not florets…pieces…there is a difference)

1 can (10 oz.) of low fat broccoli cheese soup

½ c. skim milk

2 c. fat free shredded cheddar cheese

Salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and any other spices you like


  1. Parboil the chicken breast. Once cooled pull chicken.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Boil your broccoli until it is the desired consistency then drain.
  4. Sautee your onion in a pan with nonstick and add any desired spices
  5. In a large bowl, combine chicken, onion, cauliflower rice and cooked broccoli pieces. Add soup, milk and half of each kind of cheese and mix well.
  6. Transfer to a casserole dish and top with remaining cheese.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is melty.

Before going in the oven
Vanilla and Chocolate Biscotti
Chocolate Biscotti Ingredients
1 cup Maseca®
1 ½ tablespoon baking powder
3 eggs
½ teaspoon splenda
½ cup slivered almonds
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
Vanilla Biscotti Ingredients
1 cup Maseca
1 ½ tablespoon baking powder
3 eggs
½ teaspoon splenda
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
I am also thinking of doing a Key Lime flavored Biscotti (just by adding the key lime juice and zest to the vanilla biscotti)

Hint ( I would add more splenda mine taste bland)
Preheat oven to 350degrees
Mix all ingredients until a heavy and homogenous consistency has been reached.   Place masa in a 1 ½” thick greased baking tray. Bake for 350°F for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Bread will be hard.  Cut in equal size pieces with a serrated knife.

These are my Chocolate ones

These are the Key Lime ones
I will have to add more flavoring to them next time....they were very bland (both flavors). I hope they taste better dunked in tea or coffee for now.
