The best baking dish in Dinner for your family and relatives or can eat any time you want serves a low carb meal Cauliflower stuffing with Chicken Thighs.

For making this Cauliflower stuffing with Chicken Thighs we are not putting and bread but some chicken and some seasoning we added on it with soggy cauliflower. We use corn bread that is soo good on its own and we made a post on it. Addition of Dried Rosemary batter with cornbread makes a wonderful aromatic flavor.

Take some time to cooled cornbread; I diced it up into chunks. Broaden them out on a sheet pan and tossed them with melted butter. Baked in an oven until they were dried out and crunchy.  

 I had already roasted my cauliflower and sautéed my celery and onions when I started making that cornbread.  This all made for a very long morning of waiting!  Don’t be like me!

So when you go to make this, I would do the bread first and get it dried out in the oven.  Now let’s move on the other stuff.

Which is roasting the cauliflower and the chicken!

I roasted the cauliflower florets and the chicken thighs at the same time and I pulled the cauliflower when it was starting to get black bits around the edges.

While that stuff was roasting, I sautéed my chopped onions and celery in oil and butter.  You just want to get them tender, not brown.

When all of the components were finished, I mixed them all up in a big bowl and then poured chicken broth mixed with egg all over the mixture and gently stirred.  I poured it into my baking dish, covered it with foil, and baked it.  Then I removed the foil and baked it until the top was golden brown.

I did something naughty to this cauliflower stuffing…I cut my chicken skin into thin strips and sautéed them in a skillet until they were crispy.  Then I used them as garnish on my stuffing.  That is totally optional, but I would highly recommend it.  It was delicious!

Here’s a quick tip: make the bread ahead of time (like a few days before), and keep the toasted cubes in an air tight container.  You can also cook and shred your chicken a few days before and store it in the fridge.
