My children have become such big fans of my casseroles that I had to make another one for them. I decided to put the flavors of barbecue in this Barbecue Chicken Bacon Casserole.
I decided to not to actually use BBQ sauce because it is difficult to find a sugar free sauce and I didn’t have time to make one. The combination of spices and herbs is what gives this casserole it’s flavor. The smoked paprika is the secret. It gives it a smokey flavor and really makes you think of the yumminess of barbecue season.
If this is your first visit to Joy Filled Eats you should take a peek at my casserole collection. They are all low carb, gluten free, keto, and THM S.
This looks like a lot of ingredients but most of them are spices. Feel free to substitute your favorite BBQ rub to taste instead of my spice combination.
