Chicken Bacon Caesar Casserole


Keto and casserole can go hand in hand, and this Chicken Bacon Caesar Casserole is a perfect example. The homemade sauce base for this casserole is hearty, cheesy, and loaded with yummy bacon. Add chicken and spinach, and you will have a warm and delicious weeknight dinner. Your family will love it! Besides, this dish is budget-friendly and quick to make.

Don’t be tempted to substitute store-bought Caesar dressing for a homemade version. The flavor of the dish will not be as good if you use any bottled stuff. To achieve a smooth and rich sauce without using cans of condensed soup, I make my sauce with a mix of cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo. My secret flavor booster? I use roasted garlic powder. This spice brings richness and depth and is totally worth the investment, so don’t leave it out! To make ahead: prepare the casserole through step 3 and place in the fridge for up to two days until you are ready to bake and devour.

To make the Chicken Bacon Caesar Casserole, you will need the following ingredients:
