Chicken Cauliflower Broccoli Bake

On cold days, I just want to stay inside under a cozy blanket, drink my green tea, and eat some comfort food. Most comfort food does not have great nutrition. I came up with this low-carb high-protein casserole as a replacement of a creamy chicken and rice or noodle casserole. My kids love it. In fact, my daughter asks if I can make double so she can have it as an after school snack!
