Ingredients

  • 6 turkey bacon slices cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt divided
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice uncooked
  • 8 ounces low-fat cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt optional, sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk powder optional
  • 1 egg yolk (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 pound frozen spinach thawed and squeezed to remove excess water
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9x9 casserole dish and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan but leave the drippings behind.
  • Add the chicken, garlic powder, onion powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of the kosher salt to the pan. Cook until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and mix in the cauliflower rice.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, Greek yogurt, egg yolk, buttermilk powder, dried dill weed, dried chives, shredded mozzarella cheese, and frozen spinach.
  • Add the chicken mixture to the bottom of the prepared baking dish and spoon the cheese mixture over top, smoothing it out in an even layer. Top with the shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Add the reserved bacon to the top and bake for an additional 10 minutes, until bubbly and warmed through.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
