What is Casserole?

The definition of casserole depends on where you’re from. If you’re in the United States or continental Europe, you probably think of casserole as a mashup of cut up meat, chopped vegetables, starch (such as pasta, flour, or potato) and a cheese or crunchy topping.

If you’re in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, or Ireland, however, you’re probably envisioning more of a stew. There’s a little more variance in the contents, as “casserole” generally refers to the dish itself, rather than the ingredients.

How I Made it Keto

Casseroles in the U.S. often contain cream of mushroom soup. Unfortunately, cream-based soups generally contain flour and/or other ingredients not suitable for a keto diet.

Instead, I used mushrooms and coconut cream to keep some moisture in the dish. Flavorful bacon and spicy chili peppers come in to make things interesting. It might be a bit bland without them.

This spicy keto chicken casserole recipe is one of those dishes that you can be creative with. Depending on your taste, you can add or remove the chili peppers and also play with any keto-friendly veggies.

It’s also good for leftovers that you’re not quite sure what to do with. Here’s a list of recipes where you can use your leftovers.
