Creamy Chicken Casserole
Creamy is kind of a gross word. Not as gross as moist. But a close second.
Casseroles make me miss cheese. Cheese is so good. I sometimes eat cheese but then regret that decision abouuuuut 45 minutes later. Damn you cheese and your deliciousness. Damn you.
So remember how obsessed I used to be with broccoli? If you don’t remember because you have a life and don’t care, I understand. If you do remember, I love you. Either way, I’ll update you. I was OBSESSED. I used to eat broccoli everyday, all day. I think half of my paycheck went to broccoli. And I would even be a cheap ass and break off the stems and leave them behind at the grocery store. Some of you readers thought that was rude. I thought that was smart. Pinching pennies people.
Speaking of pinching pennies, I think at some point I need to get a new computer. I have an HP that I’ve had since my freshmen year of college and I think it’s about time I update it. Especially since I blew the battery my junior year and it can’t be unplugged for more than 3 minutes or it’s down for the count. I don’t get that saying. She’s been a great computer and a great support system, but when I’m on an airplane and really need to blog or write an article, she’s a b*tch. And turns off in 3 minutes. And is seriously the biggest computer ever. It’s hard to write a blog and save it within a 3 minute time span when your computer doesn’t even fit on the tray table. I need to get with the times.
Anywho, I think I might purchase a mac soon. All I do is spend time on my computer. It’s ridiculous. And I need a computer that will support me. Like with making cooking videos. I love making those but I hate begging my friend Tom to edit them. I feel like a pain in the ass. Probably because I am. I think come winter, I’m going to buy one. I’m gonna do it. And I’m going to put the Mac store people through hell with my questions. I’m seriously so tech inept.
Oh and my computer sounds like a jet engine and feels like it’s on fire all the time. What’s that about? Sketch.
OHHHHH I forgot to tell you guys something!! So the other night when I was out at my favorite bar celebrating Justin’s leave (that sounds weird) I was sitting at a table probably being inappropriate, when a guy walked up to me told me that CrossFit Lincoln says hi to PaleOMG. How cool is that?! Especially since I was with a bunch of people from Nebraska. Small, weird world. So hi CrossFit Lincoln!! You guys are awesome!Print

This looks delicious!!!!
Seriously Juli, everytime I read your blogs I get hysterical! You and your blog and recipes have made the change over to the Primal lifestyle almost seamless for me!
Keep up the good work. I LOVE your recipes
I love my MAC just so u know and I dont think u can get any more pathetic than me at technology. It is a lot harder at the beginning to learn and I would get real angry but I finally got used to it and love it. Oh yes, this looks great and it is calling my name on the weekend. Thanks for yr recipes.
I love my mac! No need for your computer to be from the stone-age just because we lead a lifestyle based on ancestral diet and fitness. LOL. Couldn’t help myself (and yes I laughed at my own joke; awkward I know….). Thanks for another recipe and sharing your life with us!!!
I am a new follower to your blog and I absolutely love it! And this recipe looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it.
Just to warn a mac is nothing like a pc, and the switch for a pc user to a mac can be tricky. I’ve tried and just can’t get used to it! Lol.
Nothing is as bad as the word m**st! (can’t even type it). Glad to find I’m not the only one who feels that way. 🙂
Recipe looks amazing – can’t wait to try it!
love your recipes. Just started the Lurong 9 week challenge, already used some and picked out menu for next week!
So with your computer, make sure everything is backed up onto a remote harddrive. That jet engine noise could be related to your hard drive or your fan trying to cool down the computer. Try and turn off laptop when not in use, that helps to not drain the battery!!! 🙂 good luck
You need to STOP posting such amazing recipes! I am already going to make the Crockpot Breakfast and Apple Cinnamon Pancakes! ha. This will have to be on the grocery list for next week, thank you 🙂
Also, definitely buy a Mac best decision I ever made! You love it especially for blogging and video editing, enjoy!
You must get a Mac!!! I just made the leap two weeks ago.. Got a 13″ MacBook pro and I love it!! ( although I still have no clue what I’m doing…but when I get a spare minute I will go to the store to learn). I had several Mac users tell me they lived it and that it’s totally worth it! Now I agree!! ( and I’m just a boring basic computer user, I have no fancy blog or cooking videos, the Mac just makes be look cooler and more important… LOL). Seriously. Your life will improve. Bold but true.
And. Yum on the casserole. I’ve got to make that very soon. Looks like a perfect bulk recipe for the week ! With my favorites… Love broccoli and cauliflower. !
So i just went through the process of getting a new computer in March. I too had mine from freshman year in college and had to have it plugged in at all times. The power button broke and i was using a steak knife to turn it on – classy i know, but i was being cheap. So when the steak knife failed I had no way to get all my files off. Luckily I had a tech guy help me and i got made fun of so much for my huge ancient laptop. But i didn’t know what i was missing out on – Go buy that new computer! Just being able to not be plugged in is pretty dang cool. You are awesome – you deserve it. Thanks for all the recipes. Reading your blog is the highlight to my morning!
I think we have/had the same computer! Mine was an HP that I had since my freshman year of college. And since we’re the same age, we bought it at the same time. My first senior year (yeah, I had two senior years, don’t judge) the battery totally crapped out and it couldn’t be used if not plugged in. And everyone who ever entered my room told me it sounded like a jet engine. We’re living parallel lives, right?!
Macs are definitely the way to go for overall performance. But I hear blogging is better on PC’s. Good luck 🙂
This looks yummy.
And yes. Get a mac as fast as you can. Once you go mac you never go back. I swear.
I have a Mac and it’s fabulous! And good timing on this casserole post! It’s starting to get cooler and this is the perfect “warm your bones” recipe
Looks so yummy, can’t wait to try it. Great winter comfort food:)
Was reading one of your old blog posts and found punchfork.com…. You simply HAVE to paleofy this one for me: http://punchfork.com/recipe/Mushroom-Stroganoff-Skinny-Taste … OMG that looks amazing!
Btw, I feel like a little girl, first thing I do when I come to the office is go to your site, excited to see what new recipe you come up with, love love love your blog!!
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA….er…i mean that sucks about your computer.. The only reason I laugh at this is because my computer is the same way. It’s a MAC (l.o.v.e) but super old, okay so only like 5 yrs or so. Anyway, it definitely sounds like a jet when I stream videos. I’ll usually close all my windows/save my work just to be sure I dont lose anything if or when it blows up.
Happy Hump Day!
i do the same freakin thing to the portabello mushrooms! i rip the stems off because you have to buy them by weight and i always just end up throwing them out. my mom thinks it’s wrong but produce shouldn’t be so damn expensive anyways.
“down for the count” is a boxing term. Boxer knocks down other boxer and ref counts, if he’s still down when ref reaches the official # then the match is over.
And as a farmer who grows produce for a living….I’d challenge joanna to work for a farmer for a week and see if she still thinks produce is expensive. Growing food is hot, dirty, hard work and many have forgotten that.
I was JUST THINKING about you ripping off the stems of your broccoli yesterday because I was at a restaurant and they served the broccoli with the stems. WTF?
Can’t wait to try this! Perfect for the cooling fall weather! You will not regret getting a mac! Nothing better!
I got my MacBookAir specifically to work on planes because I’m an author. Did you know that with the screen put all the way down on low and the WiFi turned off you can run a word processor on a MBA for nine hours straight on a flight to Europe? True story–my deadline thanked me.;) Seriously, the MacBooks are SO worth it!
Oh, and this casserole looks amazing.:D (You can tell where my priorities are today.:))
As the owner of several macs and PC’s and a huge tech nerd (Don’t judge me, I have ADD), I would recommend just buying a new battery. They’re like $10-50 for a new one. Or maybe a netbook for $300? Macs are expensive, you’re mostly paying for the design. They have the same parts as PC’s, you can even install the mac OS on a windows PC and vice versa. On the other hand, macs break far less in my experience. Lemme know if you have questions, i’m sure I can help.
We have the same dishes….I actually have the entire set because I’m crazy and obsessed. That is all 🙂
Tearing off the produce parts is stealing.
how is it stealing if i leave it behind? that makes absolutely no sense.
Maybe ‘stealing’ isn’t the right word. But no one is going to JUST purchase the stems that are left behind, haha. Essentially it is wasting but most people probably toss the stems when cooking the broccoli anyway, right?
I’ve used them for broccoli fritters before and they were AWESOME!
I agree about no stems. One of the grocery stores I use sells the broccoli crowns trimmed very close so I always buy it there. Maybe ask the produce manager?
No, just peel like a carrot and dice, then cook with the crowns. They are delicious, don’t waste them.
Because the price per pound is for the whole stock. Usually they sell crowns also, with a different price per pound. Broccoli doesn’t cost enough to break the bank. Besides the stem is indeed edible as you said.
I have a mac and I swear I don’t know half the things I should in order to use it. I basically check email and facebook and read blogs on it. I have tried uploaded photos and moving stuff and I always end up losing files when they get whisked away to wherever they go. Plus I’ll be trying to navigate around and things all of a sudden swoosh away, leaving me startled and wondering where my pinterest webpage disappeared to.
So, hopefully you are better at computers than I am.
I TOTALLY break off the stems from broccoli. I look around filled with guilt while I do it, thinking the produce guy is going to apprehend me and send me to the cops, but I still do it. I ain’t payin for no stupid stem.
HAHAH the produce guy apprehendening you just made me almost pee myself! This conversation is killing me ! You have the people who actually think Juli and her band of broccli/ mushroom lovin bandits are stealing and then theres me… I have eaten the stems my whole life and now feel like an a**hole for not knowing to remove them 🙂 Who’da thunk!
Moist and creamy are not bad words… purulent, now that’s a bad word!!! And really we just say that b/c if something has puss we can’t say puss…y when we are talking to patients or put it in their chart! Now that I write this you may want to sensor!!!! Also, down for the count? come on. do you just say you don’t understand to be cute? 😉 You know like a boxer. Also, I miss casseroles and cheese, so thank you. And definitely MAC all the way. And I recommend those free in-store tutorials!!!
I’m not cute. no need to try to be
you are cute. own it.
Sorry, I work in medicine and we talk about disgusting things when we eat and don’t get grossed out. What I just wrote will probably not go over well on a foodie site. Sorry ;D
We should shop together – I like the stems not the tops-texture issue!–problem solved
Your pictures never fail-whatever people-free awesome recipes-Hellllooo!
Turns out we have the exact same computer.. 3 minute battery life is being generous though. I also have a friend who only eats the broccoli stems. You guys should shop together! 🙂
I’m a paleo and crossfit newbie and am doing the 9 week lurong paleo challenge. I love that I found your blog and website and have shared it w a bunch of my friends. Can’t wait to try sooo many of your recipes. They sound great!! Thanks for the ideas and keep them coming!!
I was just thinking about you tearing the stems off the broccoli and leaving them last night. It cracks me up!
You know what else is a dirty word? Tender. Since I’m from the Boston area it would be Tendah! “This pork is so tendah.” WTF?
I also work in health care where words like Jill described are common vernacular, and it’s regular meal-time conversation to talk about things such as bloody show, placenta, meconium, lochia, candida, hemorrhage, abscess… And in the course of a day’s work, I can be exposed to EVERY SINGLE body fluid in existence. “Moist” and “creamy” ain’t got nothin’ on me.
My question is: How coconutty is this? Jess, her littlest sister, and I like coconut, but the rest of the fam…not so much. Are the garlic and bacon enough to mask the flavor?
Just it masks it pretty well BUT you can always add more!
I made this last night and my husband and I loved it. My daughter, however, said it tasted like an Almond Joy (I might need to expose her to more coconut-flavored things). Next time I think I will let it simmer so it thickens up a little; mine was a lot more like soup than a casserole.
You definitely can eat broccoli stems you just have to peel the them. They are delicious and tender. Don’t waste them, eat them!
Made this last night and it was awesome and will feed my boyfriend and I for a few days(bonus! ) :(can’t rate on my phone 5stars!
If I’m buying broccoli crowns (as I usually am) and my stupid grocery store leaves most of the stalk on there, I MOST CERTAINLY do break off the stalk and leave it behind. I TOLD the produce manager why I was doing it… they started cutting them back more. If I wanted stalk I’d bloody buy the stalk. <.<
Love the Nebraska shout out! Probably because I live in Omaha. lol. Anyways. I need this casserole in my belly ASAP. Sounds awesome! 🙂
This is such a tasty recipe! You are getting me through a month long paleo challenge relatively painlessly! Thank you!
That looks so effing good. Can I put bacon on top of mine? Ever since I started Paleo 2 weeks ago, I’ve been CRAVing bacon.
ah sh*t yeah you can!
All this talk about macs… making me want mac and cheese… I hope this recipe will will kill my craving for oozing cheese over glutenous noodles. yay creamy casserole!
Looks great!! Loving this recipe.. and not too intimidating (I get so intimidated easily by cooking, ha) and I hear you on the computer.. get a mac 🙂
I love your work- the blogs, the recipes, everything! Thank you for giving me inspiration every day!
Ok- if you need a new Mac- I can help hook you up. I work for a Authorized Apple Reseller and can get you (and all my PaleOMG friends) a discount on whatever Apple product you want- with free shipping! Why pay retail? When you can save some $ and put it towards other delicious food!!!!
Info- email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (personal) – ill then respond from my work email address so I avoid spam and private info.
Amanda – newly Paleo addicted!!!
Attempted to make this at the fire house last night. Our stations ghetto and we dont have an oven door so I made it in a cast iron pan on the grill. Also, no mushrooms cause one of the guys didnt like them. Then right at step 4 we got an ambulance call so the guys that stayed back had to finish….which they half assed. Have to make this again, as for now your blackberry chocolate chip waffles after some crossfit sound amazing.
This was delish! I was a little worried when it first came out of the oven, it didn’t look the best. But it was so good, even my kids liked it. I’m looking forward to your cookbook.
WTF did that person seriously say you were stealing? I do it right in front of the produce guys….and they don’t care? Same as shucking corn right there in the grocery store, people peel back the husk to make sure its not crap corn. Whatevs. I don’t like stems. Period. And I certainly don’t buy something I don’t eat. So, break away I say. Oh and GO MAC!
shucking is a dirty word….. I swear it must be
I really liked the flavors in this. The liquid didn’t cook down at all, so the dish was pretty soupy though. Going to try it with one can of coconut milk next time.
Thanks for putting these ingredients together. I improvised – didn’t have enough broccoli, but added leftover butternut squash (roasted w/broccoli & cauliflower). I’m sure I could’ve thrown in the peppers and squashes in my fridge, too. But I’m saving those for breakfast.
I also found it too saucy – so took the sauce out after cooking, put it in a saucepan with some coconut flour to try to thicken it up. It worked. So, next time I try this again, or variation of, I’ll do the same – but adding the flour in before baking…
Keep the good recipes/cooking ideas coming!
As a complete nerd I wanted to put my two cents in about your computer choice. Yes, your recipes are awesome and delicious…. blah blah blah we all know that. But I’d suggest looking at Asus. For people on a budget that don’t do any serious video or audio editing Macs suck. You can get a better, more reliable machine by going elsewhere.
So, my suggestion is Asus. I have a couple of friends who suggested Asus to me, friends who are absolute computer nerds and whose jobs revolve around computers. I bought one, absolutely loved it and ended up getting one for my mom and sister as well. They are far from tech savvy and love them. So look into Asus.
It was very tasty but also very liquidy. Not sure that’s a word but guessing you know what I mean. Any ideas on how to rectify this? Turned out more like a chunky stew.
I made this yesterday! My boyfriend and I loved it! It’s the perfect weekday meal as it doesn’t need much time or preparation. Thanks for all your delicious recipes. PaleOMG is my go-to site for paleo recipes!
I also made this last night and it was very liquidy soup, however, we loved the flavor. Need to figure out a way to make it more creamy…suggestions?
It definitely is more runny than a normal cheesy casserole, but letting sit longer is usually what binds it all together
This looks awesome! BTW, you can eat the broccoli stems!! Just use a vegetable peeler to take off the tough outer layer, slice up and cook with the rest of your broccoli.
Love your recipes, waiting for this one to come out of the oven and sure it will be yummy. Very very bummed though that prep time took me an hour. You must have amazing Julia Child prep skills!
When you say coconut milk, is this thick full fat, or lite coconut milk? Thanks!
Loved this recipe – such great flavor and pretty simple!
I made this to keep in the fridge for lunch/snacks. Delicious and very satisfying. A serving of this filled me up for hours. This recipe is definitely going in my regular rotation.
Made this tonight (did you really mean 5 HEADS of broccoli? Seems like a lot…I used one pack of Pre-cut organic broccoli (that’s the only organic I could find), but that is the only variation from the recipe I made. My husband HATES broccoli and cauliflower, but loved this dish! It smelled so good, he had to try it! Oh… He also hates dark chicken meat, but loved how the thighs tasted…definitely a home run! This is the first time I’ve ever posted a review.
Trying this recipe tonight- but if you’re looking to save money and get the computer you’re looking for, get the least expensive Macbook Pro. Most of those machines are tricked out, and nearly every one will do what you need it to. In the off chance you want to throw some questions my way, you’ve got my e-mail.
wooohoooo! I love my MAC, I love Nebraska people, I love this recipe, and I love you, JB. (in a creepy internet friend way, not the lesbo way. and I love all my gay friends so it is fine that I used that word).
Inspired, well have a few work arounds, but this shold be good to go. For the record I just move to CoSprings, and I love it here…..almost as good as TX…lol
I made this Monday night but bought cheap coconut milk from my grocery store and it was very watery so didn’t turn out as expected. My mistake in not making the trip to Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. I will try again though.
OMG I made this tonight and it turned out AMAZING! I love it all Julie! Thank you so much. I cant wait til your cookbook comes out! My 7 year old son lovedddddddd this! This is smokey bacon chili is my fav so far!
This AND smokey bacon chili is my fav! Bad Typo!
Just made this…. its beautiful! Think I will try the smokey bacon chilli next as its getting such great ratings 😉
Great Blog too! xx
Hi Julie … just poking around looking for some casserole-y kind of things because I need to do some once a month type cooking here this weekend to get back on track.
Mac – yay.
Creamy is not as gross as “juicy.” Especially when referring to meat.
And? Had I come across your stem leavings, I would have thought it was Christmas. I like the stems better, sliced. The tops of broccoli kinda give me the oogies, it’s a texture thing.
They should totall sell just the broccoli stems for SUPER cheap since everyone wants the crowns! I would but it!
This was good. A liittle bit too much heat for little ones. Hmmm… Maybe I added too much cayenne. I used arrowroot to thicken and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast for cheesy flavor. Comfort food. Thanks for the great recipes and the always amusing blog!
Just made this for dinner tonight and this was a huge hit! Can’t wait to try out more recipes.
‘Ointment’ is also a gross word.
I just made this dish tonight and it was great. We are doing the Whole 30 program and it was nice to have something so creamy (sorry) and filling. Thanks for your wonderful recipes and sassy blog!
I honestly bursted out in laughter at your comment about the word creamy…and then moist! Are we twins?? I honestly thought I was the only person who finds those 2 words a bit icky sounding, as well as the word crusty. But anyhow, I find myself on your site a lot and I’m happy I stumbled upon this recipe. I’m excited to try it out. Cheers!
I’ve got this beauty in the oven RIGHT NOW!! My entire family (that includes 2 boys under 12) loves everything I’ve made from your blog. We switched to a GF/Paleo lifestyle to help ease my youngest son’s tourette’s syndrome and it’s made a HUGE difference in the severity and frequency of his tics. I’m thankful that you have such delicious and kid friendly meals to pick from, it’s made my life much easier!
Delicious. I would recommend serving with cauliflower rice or something like that to soak up the sauce. Also, this dish serves a lot of people and is very economical because of the thighs and veggies. Thanks for posting.
Just made this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic! Just very very liquid-y, even though I let it sit for about 15 minutes out of the oven. I like the idea of serving it with cauliflower rice to soak it up or perhaps adding something to the sauce to thicken it up? Oh and as a previous commenter suggested I added crumbled bacon to the top. Which I definitely suggest and will do again in the future. Thanks for the recipe!
you could add a little arrowroot powder to help thicken it!
Since happening upon this recipe 2 weeks ago, I made it 3x. It’s amazing and tastes even better the next day for lunch. Even my picky kids go back for 2nds! I do sprinkle some nutritional yeast in the sauce to give it a bit more of a cheese flavor. Yummy!
Ok, I made this for second time in 1 week last night. It’s SUPER runny, and I use the lite coconut milk from Trader Joe’s so that must be what I’m doing wrong????? Full cream coconut milk would probably do the trick?? It’s amazing just want it to be thicker.
Not a bad flavor but waaaayyy too spicy. I decreased the cayenne to 1/4 tsp instead of the 1/2 and I thought it was spicy and I had to rinse the whole dish off for my kids and smother it with marinara sauce. They still said it was too spicy. Not a family friendly meal unfortunately. Would try again but omit the cayenne pepper and add some arrowroot powder to thicken it up a bit.
Just made this tonight with the addition of bacon and this was delicious!!! I made a half batch to try it out and I’m kicking myself for not making a whole batch. Thank you!
I am also a broccoli addict.. I just had broccoli, avocado and bacon for breakfast, and I will make this for dinner (LOVE cauliflower too!!)
I get the giant bag of broccoli flowerets from Costco, all cut up, just the yummy parts, so easy!
I made this last night (with a few modifications!) and it was GOOOD!!!
So, for me the best part about casserole is the contrasting textures, crunchy and the creamy! So I really wanted a crunchy top – I had some coconut flour already mixed with some seasonings, so I made a ‘crumble’ with this and some almond butter (just rubbed it in my fingers). I also mixed in pieces of bacon that I’d fried to get the bacon fat. So yeah, my top was a crunchy, bacon-y, nutty yum.
If I make it again I’d a) use almond flour on top instead of coconut. I figured it might be too sweet with coconut milk and flour and it was for me…. but it was still yummy. and b) once the milk, veggies are mixed, I’d let it simmer a bit to reduce and thicken the sauce…
Everyone liked it, even my son who is not a fan of the ‘overuse’ of coconut in the house now that my husband is paleo!
Love this!! Made it last night. My first Paleo recipe 🙂
Oh thank you so much, I just made this for dinner and it totally hit the spot 🙂 I didn’t have any chicken stock on hand so used white wine instead, and topped in with almond crumbs and coconut oil. Delicious! 🙂
I just want to say, that I made this last night and It was sooooo delicious I couldn’t stop eating it! I put a lot more cayenne pepper in it that the recipe, but I love spicy things. The flavor in the juice was absolutely wonderful. I will be making this again and again!
Ate this last week and will be making it again tonight!! My “non paleo” friends sopped up all the extra broth with bread and I tried just drinking mine straight up but it wasn’t the same. Any recommendations for sopping?? LOVE making ALL of your recipes by the way!
Very good! The spices are just right. I do think I messed up the veggie to meat ratio, though. I had a 2lb package of thighs, but it didn’t seem like enough. It would be great if there was a way to make this recipe with the thighs whole (to promote my laziness) and if it was possible to thicken the sauce. The sauce is great!
Ok, I did something wrong. Mine’s not so good. Only Coconut Milk was ‘Lite’. Isn’t this supposed to be creamy? Mine isn’t…& I was looking forward to a creamy chicken casserole. Something needs tweaked…
lite coconut milk is much different. the full fat coconut milk is much thicker
Trader Joe’s has an amazing coconut cream in a can. Thicker than full fat coconut milk. It was perfect.
This dish was amazing! Because I cook for one, I typically cut recipes in half. I used one head cauliflower, one head broccoli, 1 1/2 lb chicken (for a larger protein meal), 1 can coconut milk, about 1 cup veg broth, and about 1/4 cup almond flour, cayenne, paprika, salt, pepper to taste. Followed directions exactly and came out perfect! This made about six large portions. Thanks again for another great recipe!!
So, you don’t pay for what you don’t eat? Good idea, or so I thought… I figured, since I don’t eat the core of the apple, or the skin of the orange, or the stems of the grapes, I would just remove these things, in the store. It’s hard work to core apples, peel oranges, and pick all the grapes off, but I probably saved $5, not paying for the inedible crap that the supermarket tries to sell us. Well, I woulda saved $5, if the police hadn’t showed… Turns out, it’s theft…
Not seeing creamy…
sorry you’re not seeing that
I just recently found your site and I am LOVING the recipes!! Quick question… when you say “2 (14 ounces) cans coconut milk”… You mean you need 14 ounces TOTAL, not two 14 ounce cans, correct?
Thank you, in advance, and keep the recipes coming. I’m enjoying the cooking process for the first time!
no 28 ounces total
So this was a mac and cheese post? Nice
the only canned coconut milk i find is the stuff in the asian section. it seems thick. is that the correct stuff?
Made this today, AWESOME!
Made some changes. Here they are:
used avocado oil since olive oil oxidizes at high temperatures, baked the broccoli a little bit longer, used Savoy brand coconut cream and used only 1 (I get this for $1.50 at the Asian store. I promise you this is the BEST brand, and I’ve tasted all the brands), used 1/3 C water instead of broth, doubled the paprika, added 2 tsp white rice flour and 1/2 tsp tapioca starch to the mixture to thicken it more, added 1.5 c paleo bread crumbs mixed with coconut oil on top
I just made this and it is SO delicious! I served it with cauliflower rice, which soaked up the yummy coconut milk/broth really well. Super yummy recipe! Thanks, Juli!
