Keto Low Carb Chicken and Bacon Casserole
Keto Low Carb Chicken and Bacon Casserole is a yummy and simple main dish and dinner recipe that keto diet followers love.
- 2 Chicken Breasts -fully cooked and shredded
- 4 Bacon -fully cooked and diced
- 8 oz Cream Cheese -cut into chunks and at room temperature
- 1 cup Sour Cream
- ⅔ cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tbsp Chopped Onion -dried
- 2 cups Cheddar Cheese -shredded
- Seasonings as Desired
Shred the cooked chicken if it has not been shredded. I find that using two forks works best for shredding. Transfer the shredded chicken to a large mixing bowl. Also, cook and dice the bacon if it has not been cooked and diced .
Grease a square baking dish well and preheat the oven to 350. In a saucepan on low to medium heat, heat the cream cheese chunks allowing them to soften. Whisk the cream cheese as needed to break up the chunks and aid in the softening process. Then stir in the sour cream allowing for the cream cheese and sour cream to blend together.
Once the cream cheese and sour cream have blended you can remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the heavy whipping cream, garlic powder, chopped onion, and desired seasoning(s). Transfer this mixture to the large mixing bowl that contains the shredded chicken and blend the ingredients well. You can add any optional chopped pepper at this time. Then transfer to the prepped baking dish.
Top the casserole with the shredded cheese and chopped bacon. Bake the casserole for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese has fully melted.
I mentioned that this recipe can be easily customized. Feel free to add a friendly vegetable such as asparagus or broccoli.
I also mentioned that you will need shredded chicken for this recipe.
To shred the chicken, you must cook it or have it cooked first. Use two forks to easily shred the cooked chicken.
Tip: You can use leftover chicken, store-bought shredded chicken, or pick up a rotisserie chicken and shred it.
