Busy day? Need to get a low carb dinner on the table? This delicious low carb barbecue ranch chicken casserole could be the answer to your dilemma!
A few months ago, I started homeschooling my son. It was a huge adjustment for us and in the beginning, it took us many hours to get through his lessons.
Thankfully, we’ve figured things out and now we’re doing much better with time management. But even with that, time is still at a premium for me personally. I still have to run my errands, get work done, cook our meals, clean the house, etc. You get the idea…
So with all that going on, most days I really need something that is quick and easy.
I recently looked in my freezer to see what I had and it basically came down to chicken and cauliflower. So I ran with the idea and this low carb barbecue ranch chicken casserole recipe was the result. It was fast, easy, had minimal ingredients and my little guy was really happy with his dinner. That’s huge when you’ve have a busy day! In fact, it took me all of 5 minutes to get it all into the casserole dish. Then I went off and did a million other things around the house while it baked for an hour. I love meals like that, and I hope you’ll love this too.
Just a note on the sauce, I did purchase mine. It’s not 100% clean eating, but close enough for me to feel okay about using it. It’s a pretty well known sauce in the low carb world. I think many grocery stores probably carry it. But if you aren’t comfortable with buying your sauce, feel free to make your own. 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 like I do, it’s easy enough to make your own. You can find that recipe on my other blog here.

Bake for 60 minutes or until the chicken reaches at least 165 F. on a meat thermometer.
Cool slightly and serve.
