Low Carb Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole

This is my favorite new recipe. I was so happy with how it turned out. Everyone in my family loved it. It is similar to crack chicken but this beats my crack chicken. I like to use real bacon pieces in place of cooking it myself. You can bake, grill, or skillet “fry” your chicken breasts. It is grilling season where I am but it is so hot, I didn’t want to stand outside and sweat and cook the chicken.

This is a trim healthy mama s recipe that requires no special ingredients. Like so many of the recipes on my blog, my family ate this all up the first night I made this. I made them mashed potatoes to serve theirs on top of. Low carb options would be mashed cauliflower or noodle alternatives. When you make the sauce, slowly add enough chicken broth to make a thick sauce that gives you enough sauce so you can serve it on top of your low carb base of choice. Make it this week and you won’t be disappointed.

  • I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for sharing! About how many adults will this serve?

      I would say 4-6. Almost all of my recipes feed the 5 people still at home and they are all pretty much adults (two teen boys). Some recipes will feed a lot more. This recipe is one of their favorites.

    Hello! I was curious about the ranch dressing packet. I would assume that on THM it isn’t on plan. Do you use Rhonda’s ranch?

      i Angel. I have not made Rhonda’s ranch. I have used Hidden Valley or generic version a few times. I am sure there is something in there that is off plan. I found a ranch recipe on allrecipes.com that I have used in place of the packets. If you like Rhonda’s ranch, then use that recipe in place of the ranch packet. I am sure it will be great.

    I’ve made a recipe similar to this before, but it wasn’t nearly as good as this one. Served it up with some sauted veggies. There were no leftovers!
