Servings 4 Servings


  • 4 Chicken Breast boneless and skinless
  • 8 Slices of Bacon diced
  • 1 Head of Cauliflower medium, cut into florets
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese cheddar or tex-mex works best
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Homemade Mayo see below for link
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Tsp Dried Thyme
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Parsley for garnish
  • Drizzle of hot sauce for garnish


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and dried thyme. Set aside.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, cook the diced bacon until crispy. Remove from the skillet and set aside on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease.
  • In the same skillet, add the cauliflower florets and cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until they start to soften. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, minced garlic, half of the cooked bacon, and half of the shredded cheese.
  • Place the seasoned chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish. Arrange the cauliflower florets around the chicken.
  • Spread the sour cream mixture evenly over the chicken and cauliflower.
  • Sprinkle the remaining bacon and shredded cheese over the top.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the cauliflower is tender.
  • Remove the foil and switch the oven to broil. Broil for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and a drizzle of hot sauce before serving. Enjoy your Chicken Bacon Cauliflower Bake!
