8 low carb chicken casseroles that definitely need to be added to your menu plan

Print this recipe
When it comes to what to serve your family for dinner, casseroles are a great answer. They can be made ahead of time, you can make a double batch for a crowd and you can save yourself from having to wash multiple dishes. Casseroles, in short, are the ultimate in fix-and-forget.
But finding a healthy casserole? Do those even exist? And if they do, do they even have any flavor? And are they truly filling without noodles, rice, or potatoes?
The recipes that follow are easy to put together and include everyday ingredients you likely have on hand. Best of all, they're (mostly) healthy and will help you stay on track with your nutritional goals.
1. Chicken fajita casserole (h/t Joy Filled Eats)
Forget the Mexican restaurant: Save time, money and calories by fixing this carb-free casserole with all your favorite Mexican flavors at home.
2. Chicken "potato" casserole (h/t Killer Keto)
With a hearty handful of bacon, riced cauliflower, green onions and cheddar cheese, you'll feel like you're splurging on a loaded baked potato when you eat this (but saving so much in carbs).
3. French onion chicken casserole (h/t Lil Luna)
If you're looking for a low-carb comfort food meal that requires little prep time, voila! Use rotisserie chicken or leftover cooked chicken to speed things up even more.
4. Easy low-carb Mexican chicken casserole (h/t Low Carb Zen)
You can follow this recipe as written or feel free to sub in and swap out with what you have on hand. If you're watching your salt intake, reduce or omit the chicken base. (It will still be just as scrumptious without it.)
5. Buffalo chicken jalapeno popper casserole (h/t Ruled)
There are lots of casseroles out there that provide the creamy goodness of comfort food you can even find some in this list -- but very few pack a powerful punch of spicy flavor. This casserole, however, is one that brings the heat. Filled with spicy buffalo chicken flavor and jalapenos and with bits of bacon throughout, it's perfect for a game day (or any day).
6. Low-carb chicken divan casserole (h/t Wicked Stuffed)
Often considered the mother of all classic casseroles, chicken divan is a must-have in a casserole-making repetoire. If you're going to have a chicken casserole dish on hand, let it be healthy, filled with veggies and protein, and net only five carbs per serving.
7. Chicken Gloria (h/t Kitchen Nostalgia)
Not only is chicken Gloria low-carb, but it's also a bit healthier than some other cream-based chicken casseroles because it doesn't require any canned soups. Instead, simply add flour, milk and broth to the pot and you're good to go. With mushrooms, sherry and Muenster cheese, it's also a more elegant casserole. (I imagine in a cookbook printed decades ago it would have read "nice to serve for company.")
8. Low-carb chicken cordon bleu casserole (h/t Busy Bliss)
Thinly sliced ham and Swiss cheese, shredded chicken, cauliflower and pork rinds come together in this fun twist on chicken cordon bleu. Bonus: Because the creamy sauce sort of covers up the veggies, your kids will eat them up and not even realize it.
