Bacon-Chicken Ranch & Broccoli Casserole (Low Carb)
Updated: Oct 3, 2020
This recipe is so simple, fast and calls for simple ingredients you probably already have right in the house. Yep, go check your freezer, I am sure you have a bag of frozen broccoli, chicken breast, several bags of shredded cheese in the fridge and a bottle of ranch dressing you haven't even touched yet....you don't even need to make a store run! (But check those expiration dates though LOL).
Not only is this recipe low in Carbs, it's also Keto-friendly and the whole family will enjoy it. Now let's get into it....
What you'll need:
2 lbs - Cooked Chicken Breast (shredded or cubed)
6-8 slices of bacon or you can use bacon bits
3/4 cup - Ranch Dressing
1 1/2 tsp of minced garlic
4 1/2 cups - Fresh or frozen Broccoli (you can substitute with another veggie if you choose)
1 cup - Shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup - Shredded Mozzarella cheese
3 cups - chicken broth
Pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt
21 Seasoning Salute to taste (Trader Joe's)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Steam broccoli until it's a bright green color, then chop into bite sized pieces. (you can use the "Steam in a Bag" frozen veggies also.)
Chop or shred Cooked chicken. You can use baked, boiled grilled or fried chicken. I boiled my chicken in Chicken broth. Add chicken to a mixing bowl.
After you've cooked bacon (unless you're using bacon bits) crumble bacon then add to mixing bowl with chicken.
Add cooked broccoli to mixing bowl.
Add garlic, half of the shredded cheddar, half of the mozzarella cheese and ranch dressing to the mixing bowl.
Mix all the ingredients then transfer to an oven safe casserole dish.
Top your dish with the remaining cheeses.
Bake in oven for about 15-18 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.
