BBQ Chicken Casserole with Bacon – Low Carb, Grain & Gluten Free, THM S, Keto
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.
