This Paleo Buffalo Chicken Casserole is packed with flavor for an easy weeknight dinner!
Paleo and casserole aren’t two things that go usually go hand in hand. When I think of casserole I think of gooey melty cheese and noodles. So for those of us with dairy and gluten intolerances it may seem like casseroles are a thing of the past. Not anymore! This Paleo Buffalo Chicken Casserole has all the good qualities of casserole without the allergens!
This is a recipe that the entire family will love! Low in carbs but high on flavor it’s also great for those of you that eat Keto.
I debated on what fillings to add to it but ultimately ended up with a buffalo chicken version because I knew I could trick it out with all sorts of toppings, and let’s face it toppings are my favorite.
Here’s a quick list of ideas for you:
- Crispy Bacon
- Ranch Dressing
- Diced Tomato
- Diced Red Onion
- Blue Cheese Crumbles (if you tolerate cheese! After years of being cheese free I can now eat it without issue)
- Extra Buffalo Sauce, duh!
This is an easy recipe that takes mere minutes to throw together then all you have to do is let it do it’s thing in the oven for about an hour, pick your toppings, and you’re good to go!
If you want to make this come together SUPER fast then I would suggest using a storebought riced cauliflower so that your kitchen isn’t covered in grated cauliflower. You’re welcome. You don’t have to squeeze out the liquid from the cauliflower but it does help it to cook a bit faster. Go by your judgement here.
If you love this recipe I would suggest checking out my Paleo Cauliflower Pizza Bites, they’re equally delicious and very customizable. Kids love them and they make a great packable meal option.
