Preheat oven to 350 if baking immediately. Or you can prep ahead and keep in the refrigerator for a day or two.
In a big bowl combine cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, and spices and mix thoroughly.
To the cream cheese mixture, you just made add the chicken, broccoli, ¾ of the cheese, and the ¼ cup bacon crumbles and mix well.
Dump into a 9x13 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle remaining cheese and 2 tablespoon bacon crumbles on top.
Bake until hot about 35 minutes.
Nutrition: This has 8 servings. A serving is ⅛th of the casserole. I just eye it up. There are 4 NET carbs per serving.Notes on Ranch: My unique blend of spices is what gives this plenty of ranch flavor. You do not need a packet of ranch mix or bottled ranch dressing.Substitutions: you can swap turkey for the chicken and any cheese you like. Don't eat pork? Use turkey bacon.Prep Time: if you are using pre-cooked chicken, bacon crumbles, and thawed frozen broccoli the prep time really is 10 minutes. If you are using all fresh ingredients it is closer to 30 minutes.To Reheat: you can bake this again at 325 until hot or heat portions in the microwave.To Freeze: I've frozen lunch-sized portions after baking and also prepped the casserole and frozen before baking - both options work!Make sure to check out the video of this recipe in the blog post!
