Casseroles make great family meals – they are simple and quick to prepare, are quite hearty, and if done right can be very healthy!
There are two instances where I am likely to make a casserole – on a weeknight when I am short on time, or on the weekend when I have time to do some meal prep.
While my husband may be quite happy to eat a steak every day, our budget can’t quite manage that. So, we eat a lot of chicken. It is just so simple to cook, and more importantly it is affordable!
Even though chicken in itself isn’t very fatty, I love using it in my keto recipes. To up the fat content, I add in healthy fats.
I use chicken for all sort of meals, but I especially love using it in casseroles!
Keto chicken casserole dishes are suitable for the whole family – even those that aren’t on keto. So you won’t have to worry about making separate meals if your partner or children aren’t following the keto diet.
(They also make great dishes to take to potlucks – no one will even know it is keto!)
