Low Carb Chicken Casserole

My SO is doing low carb, and even those not doing low carb know that pasta is a big no - no. But sometimes even " low carbers " crave a casserole that's full of cheesy goodness. ;) So, I decided to try to come up with a recipe that was low in carbs and still fit the bill for cheesiness.For the chicken seasoning, I used Weber's Grill Creations " Kick' N Chicken " seasoning. But you can use whatever chicken seasoning you have on hand.And as always with my recipes, you can adjust the amount of seasoning as you like. Submitted to " ZAAR " on May 21st, 2009.
