My Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole is a hit with kids and adults. Quick, easy, and so comforting. This is cheesy, bacony, and filling. It is low carb, grain, gluten, & sugar-free, & a THM S.
Bacon Ranch Chicken Casserole – Low Carb, Keto, THM S, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free
Mondays can be tough. Especially when the toddler wakes up every hour all night long the night before and won’t go back to sleep. Again and again.
So… With that said it is a “Drive Through Sue” kind of day. Thank the Lord I already had cooked chicken in the fridge so I was able to quickly whip up a casserole that I could pop into the oven for dinner.
If you’ve read any of the Trim Healthy Mama books you know the phrase “Drive Through Sue”. If you haven’t it is a name for those of us who like to make things quick and easy and don’t mind using shortcuts (like prepared sauces instead of making our own even if homemade would be a bit healthier).
I do enjoy cooking and baking or I wouldn’t have begun this blog but there are days I just need a break. I knew by the time 5 o’clock came around I would be wiped and barely able to drag myself off the couch let alone make a nutritious dinner.
This easy casserole has chicken, broccoli, bacon, and cheddar in a creamy homemade ranch sauce. It is low carb, keto, gluten-free and kid approved! Your whole family will love it.
