    The Best Buffalo Crack Chicken and Cauliflower Casserole Recipe

    Sweet, Sweet Casserole 

    I know what you’re thinking. The best buffalo crack chicken and cauliflower casserole recipe. There’s one word that stands out isn’t there? You guessed it – crack! Well don’t worry, here at the Keto Cookbook we are not encouraging you to experiment with illegal ingredients! But because this chicken recipe tastes SO addictive, we had to name it accordingly.

    So, if you’re after a rich sauce, full of creamy flavor, you’ve come to the right place!

    A casserole is one of those dishes that can save pretty much any cooking disaster. It’s also one of those comforting meals that bring back lots of family memories, as it’s usually served on a weeknight after a long day at work or school. It’s even unbelievably easy to make. As apart from a bit of chopping, you can sit back, relax and leave it to do its magic in the oven.

    But often these types of dishes are loaded with ingredients we don’t really need. For example, many people like to cover the delicious meat and veggies with a breadcrumb topping, which not only adds extra calories, but means people who are restricting carbohydrates (such as those following a keto diet) or those who have dietary intolerances and can’t eat gluten, are unable to enjoy this traditional dish.

    However, here at The Keto Cookbook, we’ve got the perfect solution! We’ve created a recipe with a buffalo twist, which only needs six ingredients and one of those is optional. These include chicken breast, cream cheese, mozzarella, cheddar, cauliflower, and we also love to add Franks Hot Sauce. If you’re vegetarian, you can even swap the chicken for non-starchy, chunky vegetable, or even meaty style cheeses such as delicious halloumi.

    Recipe Information

    You may have noticed that it takes just under 9 hours to cook. But not to fear! This is not nine hours of food preparation. Preparing the ingredients is actually very quick and the vast majority of this time is leaving the ingredients to cook in a slow cooker. We recommended making the recipe this way, as slow cooking gives the flavors within the ingredients a chance to increase in richness. It also serves six adults, so it really is a great family recipe.

    Finally, let’s talk about the nutrition. Although at 496 calories this recipe is not particularly heavy going, we recommend eating this at dinner time. This is because it contains a whopping 39 grams of protein, which is sure to keep you going until breakfast next day. Sugar is quite high at 6 grams, but if you forgo the hot sauce, this will bring the number right down. Finally, it only had 7 grams of net carbs, which means Atkins and keto dieters can rejoice.

    So, there you have it! The best buffalo crack chicken and cauliflower casserole recipe. Just to give you a tip, this tastes particularly great when topped off with our delicious Keto Blue Cheese dressing. You can find the recipe here: LINK

    Steps

    1
    Done
    8 hours

    The first step in this recipe is extremely simple, but quite time consuming. All you have to do is dump your chicken breasts, cream cheese and Franks Hot Sauce into your slow cooker, and cook on low for 8 hours.

    2
    Done

    After the 8 hours, you want to shred the chicken with two forks, and mix well with the sauce that has formed. You want the chicken to be a nice stringy shredded consistency, not chunky or lumpy.

    3
    Done

    Take a roasting dish and add your chopped cauliflower. Add salt and pepper to taste, drizzle with olive oil and pop it in the oven at 350F for 25 mins.

    4
    Done

    When the cauliflower is looking nice and golden, remove it from the oven and layer on your buffalo chicken mixture. Top this off with your cheese and pop it back in the oven for another 15 minutes to bake.

    This is absolutely delicious with a side salad or just on it's own, and drizzled with our Keto Blue Cheese Sauce. Also a great meal to make on a Sunday evening and bring to work as lunches for the week.

    Holy block of cheese this is not printer friendly. o-o Three pages! You should fix it to where it links to a smaller formatted screen.

    Hey!I didn’t realise that this issue existed! I will get the team to check it out right away!

    In the meantime, if you click on the ‘Reading Mode’ tab you should be able to print it all out on one page!

    Thanks for visiting!

    So far it smells really awesome. I made it in an instant pot on slow and it was done in 4 hours. I have not made the cauliflower yet but I know it will be great.
