HOW TO MAKE KETO CRACK CHICKEN CASSEROLE
For this recipe, you will need an 8x8 casserole dish.
Before you start to prepare the dish, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
WHAT KIND OF CHICKEN DO YOU USE FOR THIS RECIPE?
I used chicken breast for this recipe, but boneless chicken thighs would work as well. Simply cook them and cut them into cubes. You will need 2 ½ cups of chicken. Place the chopped chicken into the bottom of an 8x8 casserole dish.
Cook up your bacon and chop it up.
Sprinkle half of the cooked and chopped bacon on top of the chicken. Then, sprinkle the diced onion on top of the bacon in the pan.
Next, add half of the shredded cheddar cheese.
In a medium bowl, mix eggs, heavy cream, sour cream, and ranch dressing and pour the mixture over the chicken and bacon in the pan.
WHAT KIND OF RANCH DRESSING SHOULD I USE FOR THIS KETO CHICKEN CASSEROLE?
Top with the remainder of the casserole with cheese and bacon. If you like things extra cheesy, feel free to use a little more cheddar.
Bake this keto crack chicken casserole for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Cover with foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.
Remove from the oven and let the dish rest for 5 minutes before serving.
You can serve this with a salad or some riced cauliflower to keep it keto friendly.

Eat At Home Meal Plans
I am a big fan of Eat At Home Meal Plans. They are perfect for a low carb or keto lifestyle. If you are stressed about the cost of eating out or trying to decide what to make for dinner each night, you’ll love them too. Sign up for the plans, and get access to 4 separate meal plans each month (Traditional, Wholesome Traditional, Slow Cooker, and No Flour/No Sugar). So even if your family is not following a keto plan, there are plenty of meal ideas for them as well.
All you have to do is print the plans, color-coded grocery lists, and recipes you want for the month. And there are so many options, even picky eaters will find something they like.
When it is time for dinner, make that night’s recipe (choices include make-ahead, freezer meals, slow-cooker recipes, and other time-saving strategies) and you are good to go.
I know you have more important things to do than meal planning. Let someone else do it for you with Eat At Home Meal Plans. Monthly, quarterly and annual plans are available.
