Keto Chicken Cheese Casserole

Keto Chicken Cheese Casserole. A rich, creamy casserole with chicken and cheese that is excellent for anyone on a low-carb diet or in need of some major comfort food.

In a rich cream sauce, this Keto Chicken Cheese Bake is stuffed with succulent chicken pieces, mushrooms, bacon, and spinach.

Who wouldn’t be thrilled to see this hot, bubbling Keto Chicken Cheese Bake on the dinner table, waiting to be served, whether you eat low-carb or not?

Casserole

With bacon, baby spinach, four kinds of cheese, mushrooms, and fresh garlic in a luscious, creamy sauce, this Keto Chicken Cheese Bake delivers a generous quantity of chicken in every bite.

This simple, low-carb casserole is perfectly seasoned, as you already know if you’ve tried some of my husband Jack’s earlier dishes. (He is SO skilled at fusing various flavors and seasonings!)

Colman’s dry mustard (we love the kick), white pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and a splash of hot sauce assist to balance off the dish’s richness and lend a subtly sharp note to the sauce.

We used a rotisserie chicken from our neighborhood market to make our Keto Chicken Cheese Bake even simpler, but you could also roast or poach a chicken at home and then shred or slice it for this dish.

  • Grated Parmesan cheese, half a cup
