I don’t know about you but I love a good casserole on a cold night. Now I know a lot of people love a good stew or soup but for me I am a casserole girl and this KETO friendly Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole was AMAZING!
Loaded with flavor
This casserole is loaded with tons and tons of flavor. It all starts with seasoning the chicken with your favorite all purpose seasoning. I love this seasoning because it is course not overly salty (and there are no carbs in it) but any seasoning blend will work.
I also make sure and season the veggies before I roast them. This really amps up all the yumminess of the roasted veggies while adding one more level of flavor. Of course the cream cheese and ranch take it to the next level. Last but not least comes the bacon.. yep bacon. Anything with bacon is good, right?
Sneaking in the Veggies
The beauty of this casserole is you can sneak in veggies and your kids (or big kids) won’t even notice. There is so much flavor in each bite that the veggies are hidden. My mom is not a fan of broccoli and she had NO IDEA there was broccoli in here… you know that is a good recipe
The beauty of this dish is you can any combo of veggies you would like, I chose broccoli and cauliflower because I had them on hand and they are lower in carbs than some other options like carrots or peppers.
Bring on the Cheese & Bacon
What really makes this casserole super special is the cheese and bacon in my option. The cream cheese sauce is all brought together with the cheese and bacon.
I chose to use Monterey Jack cheese as I love how it melts but I also wanted to keep it all white, but you could use whatever cheese or cheese blend you prefer.
The bacon also adds a great smokiness and bacon-y yumminess to each bite, and like I said before anything with bacon is good.
