Loaded Cauliflower and Buffalo Chicken Casserole


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and hot sauce. Add the cauliflower florets and stir to coat. Scoop the cauliflower into a 9X13 inch baking dish, leaving behind as much of the olive oil/hot sauce mix as possible.
  3. Bake the cauliflower for 30-35 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and starting to brown.
  4. While the cauliflower is cooking, add the cubed chicken to the bowl with the leftover olive oil/hot sauce mix and stir to coat. Once the cauliflower is fully cooked, remove from the oven. Top the cauliflower with the raw marinated chicken.
  5. In a bow mix together the cheese, turkey bacon, and green onion and top the raw chicken with the cheese mix. Return the casserole to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the topping is bubbly.
