Keto Baked Chicken “Potato” Casserole

Chicken Cauliflower Casserole! This tastes like a baked potato! I could eat this ALL DAY. This week, I have been eating some for lunches and dinners. I am nowhere near sick of it yet, and my entire family loves it.

You could make this without the chicken, but I find that it’s a good protein boost and has about 6 net carbs in a 1.25 cup serving. It has about 35 grams of protein as well!

This was an amazing recipe originally from food.com, and I tweaked it a little bit.

Ingredients:

  • 5 slices of bacon
  • 3 cups riced cauliflower (or one bag of Trader Joe’s cauliflower rice)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 green onions, chopped, divided
  • 2 cups cooked chicken
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Method:

Preheat he oven to 350 degrees.

Cook the bacon in the skillet until crispy. Remove bacon to a paper towel, and pour the grease out of the skillet.

Add the cauliflower to the skillet and cook on medium high heat for ten minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a large bowl, combine sour cream, 3 green onions, chicken, 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper. Add cauliflower and stir until well mixed.

Put mixture into a baking dish, sprinkle with remaining cheese, and cook for 20 minutes. Chop bacon and add to the top along with the remaining green onion.

  1. It was delicious. I made a couple of changes, I used center cut bacon, light sour cream and added a couple of chopped mini peppers. It did not say how many servings, but when I put it in myfitnesspal it calculated it for me until I matched the results you noted, less the addition of peppers. We thought that since the cauliflower still had a little crunch it was more like rice than baked potato, but no less delicious. Perhaps I should have steamed it first? It was still wonderful! Thank you!

    1. Ok, so in the recipe, it said that I cooked it on medium high for ten minutes. In the past, I also have microwaved it for ten minutes as well. It doesn’t burn easily, and it really doesn’t get mushy either.
