Casseroles are one of my favourite foods to eat. There is something so comforting about them. Even in the hot summer months, I still like to have a good, hearty casserole sometimes.

What I love about this Cheesy Chicken Bacon Broccoli Casserole is that it’s a complete meal! No need to make a main protein dish along with another vegetable side dish. Just throw it all together and you’ve got dinner!

The Low Carb Beginners Guide

Many low carb casseroles use cauliflower as their base. While it’s a great option, when you have a hubby who really despises cauliflower, you have to get creative and use another vegetable!

(Here’s a favourite casserole of mine made with cauliflower!)

This casserole tastes great with broccoli. Even my kids like broccoli better when it’s covered in a sauce and some cheese 😉 Oh…and let’s not forget bacon!

To make this meal super quick, I like to use the leftovers from a whole cooked roasting chicken. Alternatively, you could buy a rotisserie chicken from the store, cut it up, and use that.

The leftovers from this meal freeze well and make great lunches. I hope you enjoy this casserole as much as we do!
