Low carb casseroles

Casserole recipes are one of the easiest ways to keep dinner low carb.  You can make them ahead of time, or quickly assemble them because they typically have less prep time than other complex recipes.  

And you’ve probably got most of the ingredients on hand already.   This particular recipe is almost too easy to suggest assembling it in advance.

Can you put raw chicken in a casserole?

Yes you absolutely can!   This is safe to do because the bacteria will be killed during the cooking process.   We always recommend cooking chicken to an internal temp of at least 165F. 

Also, we use chicken tenders for this meal, which will keep the cooking time down.   You could always swap out for chicken breasts if that’s your preference but you’ll need to increase the cook time and ensure the chicken reaches its target temp.

We also try to keep the veggies a little “al dente” because this gives the dish that hearty, filling sensation.   No soggy veggies please!  The seasoning from the ranch is the perfect amount of flavoring, and we use just enough cheese to coat the veggies and give them a creamy topping.

How to make chicken casserole:

  •  Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Add olive oil to the bottom of a casserole dish, then place chicken tenders in the dish side by side. 
  • Sprinkle on half of the ranch “dip” packet.  Top that with the chopped broccoli, sliced onions and peppers.
  • Sprinkle on the rest of the ranch dip packet and the shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the veggies are still a little al dente and the chicken temp reads 165F or higher.
