Spinach Chicken Cauliflower Rice

The other night I wanted a casserole.  Something savory, comforting but without mushroom soup or rice.  We had cauliflower rice and frozen spinach…add wine and chicken – done.  Casserole.

Two bags of riced cauliflower (one was savory herb, the other was plain), 1 package of frozen spinach, defrosted, and drained.Mixed together (fluffed).Season chicken thighs with ground mustard, chives, celery seed, parsley, salt and pepper.Place chicken thighs on top of the spinach and cauliflower mixture.  Add a cup of white wine around the edge.Bake at 350 degrees until chicken is cooked through, and add crispy onions.Bake for another 5-8 minutes or until the onions are golden brown.My plate.  The flavor was nice, and comforting.  I will say it need a fat.  Next time I will add a couple of teaspoons of butter or additional olive oil.  But it satisfied my craving for comfort food.  David missed the mushroom soup…but he did enjoy it.
