Directions

1. To make the chicken Alfredo casserole with spinach: Add olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes into a Ziplok bag along with 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Seal the bag and shake until mixed. Add the chicken breasts, seal, and massage so the chicken is covered in the marinade, set aside for 10-15 minutes while you prep the remaining ingredients. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400ºF (200°C).

2. In a medium saucepan, add the butter and garlic over medium heat, cooking until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Add the cream, cream cheese, and chicken stock, stir well and bring to a boil. Add in the Parmesan, parsley, and pepper, stirring constantly until the cheese has melted and no lumps remain.

3. Arrange chicken breasts drained from the marinade in a baking dish. Top with chopped spinach then spread the Alfredo sauce over. Sprinkle mozzarella and finish with crisp bacon.

4. Bake the chicken casserole for 25-30 minutes, depending on the size of chicken breasts. Chicken is done when cooked through to an internal temperature of 165˚F (75°C). Sprinkle with more chopped parsley. Serve the chicken spinach alfredo casserole with a side of cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, or pasta for non-keto. Enjoy!

Tips for the Alfredo chicken casserole recipe

  • You can use store-bought Alfredo sauce to speed up the process, but nothing beats cooking from scratch ;)
  • Add chopped spicy sausage when cooking the alfredo chicken casserole, you’ll get a meatier dish and it’s delicious!
  • You can cut the chicken breasts into cubes to speed up baking time, or also use cooked shredded chicken.
  • Freeze the chicken casserole into individual portions so you have a comforting dinner for evenings when you don’t want to cook from scratch
  • If bacon is not your thing but you still want a crisp, crunchy topping, sprinkle your chicken casserole with crushed pork rind. For those not on a Keto diet, breadcrumbs or Panko are both great options.
