Cheesy Cauliflower Chicken

This Cheesy Cauliflower Chicken is a quick, easy, and child-pleasing dinner!


And, how could it not be, with all that cheese!  

It was born from a need to use up an extra head of cauliflower, and knowing I had pre-cooked shredded chicken in the freezer and a bell pepper in the fridge and less than 15 minutes until the kids officially starved!

It was super fast, super easy, super healthy, and (the best part...) everyone loved it!

Ingredients:

* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 3/4 cup-1 cup water
* 2 cups shredded chicken
* 1 head chopped cauliflower
* 1 large chopped red bell-pepper
* 1/2 large chopped onion
* 2 cups shredded cheese
* spices to flavor: salt, pepper, oregano, garlic

Preparation:

1-  Put the chicken, cauliflower, pepper, and onion in a large frying pan with the oil and water.  Bring to a boil, cover, and cook for 5-7 minutes.

2- Uncover, turn heat down, add spices to taste, and let simmer until water cooks out (about 1-2 more minutes).  Turn heat off.

3- Cover with cheese and put lid on until cheese melts.

4- We served on top of a whole wheat tortilla, but you could add a side of rice, bread, or quinoa if you'd rather!
