Low Carb Barbecue Ranch Chicken Casserole recipe is for dinner tonight! All you chicken-barbecue-and ranch-lovers will appreciate this tasty low carb dinner!
Busy day? Need to get a low carb dinner on the table? We hear you, especially with school back in session.
This delicious low carb barbecue ranch chicken casserole is the answer to your dilemma!
Now that school is back in session for most of us I feel like we are back to the ‘Oh Crap we forgot to plan what we are eating tonight’
So with all that going on again, most days I really need something that is quick and easy. This chicken casserole fits the bill!
The Basics We Always Have in the Freezer in a Low Carb Diet
I looked in my freezer to see what I had and it basically came down to chicken and cauliflower.
It truly seems to be a normal on what we store in the freezer. Family loves chicken and I personally prefer frozen riced cauliflower for the exact reason of sweet sweet convenience.
I can highly recommend keeping these ingredients in the freezer at all times because you can make things like, Chicken Enchilada Breakfast Casserole, Mexican Cauliflower Rice oh and this Cheddar Broccoli Chicken Casserole.
Our main priorities for dinners these days are fast, easy, have minimal ingredients. In fact, it took me all of 5 minutes to get it all into the casserole dish.
Low Carb Barbecue Sauce Options
We personally have a jar of sugar-free barbecue sauce in the refrigerator at all times.
But if you aren’t comfortable with buying your sauce, feel free to make your own like we did here. The main thing is to end up with 1 cup of it for the recipe.
Also, if you avoid the ranch packets at the grocery store for whatever reason like I do, it’s easy enough to make your own. You can find that recipe on my other blog here. I personally think they are just expensive and it’s so much easier to have a jar of this mix already together for quick nights like this.
Alright, lets make some dinner and then pass out. Because that truly seems like the normal now that school is back in session. 😉

HOW MANY NET CARBS PER SERVING IN OUR LOW CARB CHICKEN CASSEROLE?
8 Net Carbs per serving of our barbecue ranch chicken casserole.
Which pretty much equate to a small chicken breast and 1/4th of the rice cauliflower. I pretty much always like to pair a side salad with this dinner. Quick and filling dinner in under an hour all together. It’s a winner.
