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. I forgot to add,this has 9.1 grams of carbs per serving.

With lots of cheesy goodness, this low carb chicken casserole is very tasty. The luscious cheese sauce is what makes it so satisfying. You don't miss the carbs at all. While baking, it makes the house smell delicious. Serve with green vegetables or a salad and everyone will gobble up this casserole. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Low Carb Chicken Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a skillet, large enough to hold the chicken, melt margarine over medium heat.
  3. Add chicken and sprinkle with chicken seasoning; stirring well to coat. Cook until no longer pink and slightly browned. Set aside.
  4. To make the Cheese Sauce: In a medium-sized saucepan, melt margarine over medium/low heat.
  5. Add flour and cook until lightly browned. Stir in milk, a little at a time, until slightly thickened.
  6. Stir 1 1/2 cups cheese into milk. To get the desired thickness or thinness, you might want to add a bit more milk. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. In a large bowl, add cauliflower, chicken, and cheese sauce. Then pour into a greased 2-quart pan.
  8. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
