Hard to make casseroles sound sexy, but this one is, in my eyes. This Easy Keto Chicken Casserole is creamy & indulgent, but not going to make you fat. I happen to sneak some veggies in there too!
Keto Chicken Casserole Recipe Information:
- Prep Time: ~15 min
- Bake Time: ~40 min
- Makes 4-6 servings
- 2 pounds pre-cooked, shredded chicken
- 2 cans, coconut milk (full fat version)
- 4 eggs

Instructions for Easy Keto Chicken Casserole:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine your 4 eggs and 2 cans of full fat coconut milk into a large plastic mixing bowl. Add salt & pepper to taste. Whisk it all together.
Pour 1/2 cup of coconut oil into large wok and heat on med/high till it shimmers and pops. Add your chicken, broccoli, and cauliflower. Saute for 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat.
Combine all casserole ingredients in 15 x 10 rectangular, glass baking dish (or similar).
Make sure the mixture is spread evenly and all the contents are covered. Place the casserole in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes so it can thicken and looks more casserole-y before serving.
You can plate this nicely by using a silicone spatula to serve.
I’m not one for appearances, so I heap spoonfuls of this casserole into a huge bowl and top it off with some Sriracha sauce for some heat.
The ingredient list says “pre-cooked, shredded chicken.” The last time I made this I bought two packages of all-natural, pre-cooked shredded chicken at HEB. You can do that too or:
- Sauté some chicken in a pan, then dice it up. Doesn’t have to be shredded for this recipe to work.
- Look up a shredded chicken recipe online and try it out. Basically, you’ll either be steaming, boiling, or slow-cooking chicken then shredding with a fork.
- Buy a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and fork off the meat.
I buy the 10-12oz size of the steam-in-the-bag broccoli and cauliflower. I use about 2/3 the bag of broccoli and the whole bag cauliflower.
You have to get the full fat version of coconut milk. I accidentally used light coconut milk once and it was awful.
