Macaroni and Cheese with Chicken

Macaroni and Cheese with Chicken

Keto dinner recipes in our house are always simple and full of flavor! We’ve tried Macaroni and Cheese with just cauliflower and it didn’t go over well. So we updated the recipe and added Chicken…and it was a hit!

Our kids love casseroles and they seem to be a common theme, especially as the weather gets colder. Boss Babe usually makes them during the day and then pops them in the oven a half hour before dinner. Without much effort, she has a great tasting dinner made fresh from the oven!

Here are the Kitchen Items You'll Need:

  • 8x8 Baking dish

The Keto Dad Tips and Tricks:

  • You can double the sauce if you’d like! It’s delicious!

  • Cauliflower works great as a macaroni substitute. Broccoli would be delicious also as a broccoli cheese casserole!

  • A common question is “do you blanch the broccoli and cauliflower”? Nope! We never do! And if you are using frozen, just add about 5 minutes to the cooking time and you’re good to go!
