How many carbs are in keto chicken casserole?

The great news is that with our recipe made with homemade quick keto ranch dressing, you will come to 2 grams of carbohydrates per portion. 

To add to that, 1 gram of fiber will bring you to a total of 1 gram of net carbs per serving, which is fully filling.

How many calories are in the keto bacon ranch chicken casserole?

With regards to having lots and lots of ranch, bacon pieces, cheesy chicken and broccoli, the calories in our dinner are 339 per portion. 

This means that our favorite low carb casserole with chicken will keep you full until the next day for sure. 

5 Ingredients only low carb dinner 

For our bacon and chicken ranch casserole, you only need 5 ingredients.

  • Chicken – you can use our recipe, where you can prepare the chicken in the instant pot for 10 minutes. You can also use rotisserie chicken or any boneless skinless chicken pieces you have as a leftover from previous cooking. Even shredded chicken will work here. 
  • Bacon – any type of bacon will do. Be it cooked bacon, raw, smoked, American bacon, bacon crumbles, collar bacon, or back bacon. All works great. 
  • Broccoli – you can pick either florets only or chop the whole broccoli with stems. You can use pre-cooked broccoli, raw or blanched pieces. Frozen broccoli florets can be also used.
  • Ranch sauce – the best would be our homemade ranch sauce mix recipe as it is entirely keto, but if you have your own or store-bought, which is with minimum carbs, you can pick that as well. 
  • Grated cheese – any hard cheese will do. Make sure you grate yourself as store-bought shredded cheese mixture containing additional carbs from starches, and we do not need that at all. 

That’s it. 5 ingredients, some baking time, and you are done and ready for low carb dinners for a few days to come.  

Replacements and swaps

  • Chicken – can be swapped for any meat like turkey, beef, or even fish will work.
  • Broccoli – can be replaced for any veggies such as spinach, cauliflower, green beans, brussels sprouts, asparagus, bell peppers, mushrooms, leek, kale, pumpkin.
  • Bacon – alternate with prosciutto or salami.
  • Hard cheese – can be swapped for mozzarella, shredded cheddar cheese or parmesan.
  • Ranch – can be exchanged for any dressing you like, but it will not be ranch casserole anymore. You can also mix cream cheese or sour cream with packet of ranch seasoning mix or use hidden valley ranch packet instead.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING SUPER EASY KETO CHICKEN BACON RANCH CASSEROLE RECIPE

First step: Ingredients needed for chicken casserole

First, preheat your oven to 180 Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit.

Prepare all of your ingredients, such as pre-cooked chicken and crumbled bacon cut into small pieces or bacon bits.

For broccoli, you could either use florets only or the stems cut into pieces.

Ranch dressing is made using our recipe as it contains the least carbohydrates you can have.

Cheese, please make sure you buy a whole piece in the supermarket and shred yourself to avoid additional carbs from starches.

Tips and tricks:

  • Vegetables – you can add any vegetables you wish.
  • Broccoli – you can blanch your broccoli or use it raw. Using raw broccoli can end with more liquid in the casserole, but that was not in my case, and I love vegetables even half-cooked more than overcooked. 
  • Want to add more fat – add pieces of butter.
  • Spices -additional spices can be added, but if you are using our homemade ranch dressing, they all are in.
  • Garnish – Sprinkle with fresh herbs, chives, parsley, basil leaves, spring onion.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Can I make keto chicken bacon ranch casserole with raw chicken?

You certainly can add raw chicken into the casserole.

You need to remember that you might have more liquid inside the casserole as the raw chicken will release it while cooking. 

If you want to use raw chicken, I suggest cutting it into small pieces, so you do not have to increase the baking time too much and make sure the chicken bakes thoroughly.

And, of course, add an extra 15 minutes into the baking time. 

What to serve with chicken casserole?

Can you make this easy low carb casserole ahead of time?

Yes, our casserole is such a great dish even after one to two days of making it. I usually portion casserole with the remaining pieces beforehand and warmed up in the oven for a few minutes or until the cheese melts, it is a perfect dish for keto meal planing.

One option is to use crock pot as this crock pot crack chicken and let the flavors mix in for hours.

How do you store chicken bacon ranch casserole?

Our low carb chicken bacon ranch casserole can be stored in the same dish covered with either cling film or aluminum foil. 

Store casserole in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.

Can you freeze keto casserole?

You can undoubtedly freeze our keto casserole.

I would suggest separating it into portions for easier defrosting later on.

    • My casserole dish is 30 cm or 12 Inches. Depending how many layers you want to make, you can alternate the size of your casserole. Regarding ingredients, all of the amounts are in the recipe card towards the end of the post.

  1. I am somewhat confused – as the recipe states layer the broccoli as the base and top with the chicken. But the photo appears to show the chicken as the base topped with the broccoli.
