Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole

It’s chickenlnd_4f78736a-d42d-4901-bc31-88547856c9e6 week and I wanted to jazz it up some so, I found a recipe on Pinterest that I just had to try. Bacon, Ranch, Cheese, and Chicken sounded like it would be awesome. It was!

Not only was it delicious, it was very easy to make. Since I used fresh broccoli, all I had to do was to cook and cube the chicken and then combine all the ingredients per the directions. I popped it in the oven and cleaned the kitchen while it was in the oven.

This casserole can be made in advance and refrigerated for a day or two before you bake it. Also, it taste just as good once it’s re-heated in the microwave. It’s got my stamp of approval. I would never thought that this casserole is low carb, grain free, sugar free, and gluten free.

Ingredients:

1.5 lb. cooked chicken, cubed

1-1.5 lb. fresh broccoli, steamed and drained (or frozen broccoli, thawed and drained) (or vegetable of your choice like cauliflower or spinach)

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. minced onion

1/2 tsp. dill

1 tsp. parsley

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/4 cup + 2 tsp. bacon crumbles

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened

4 oz. sour cream

4 oz. mayo

8 oz. shredded cheddar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 if baking immediately. Or you can prep ahead and keep in the refrigerator for a day or two.
  2. Combine cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, and spices in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
  3. Add the chicken, broccoli, 3/4 of the cheese, and the 1/4 cup bacon crumbles and mix well.
  4. Dump into a 9×13 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle remaining cheese and 2 T. bacon crumbles on top. Bake until hot about 35 minutes.
