Keto Chicken Alfredo Casserole

The prep of this recipe is seriously so simple. If you have leftover rotisserie chicken, you can easily use it for this recipe. I also tend to batch cook chicken and freeze portions, so I can head to the freezer and pull out some pre-shredded plain chicken to use for this recipe. Or if you don’t have chicken on hand cook some up, or buy grilled chicken breast strips that are pre-cooked.

If you love chicken alfredo, give my low carb chicken alfredo bake with Brussel sprouts a try, it is a great healthier version to treat yourself too.

How to Cut Up Brussel Sprouts for Chicken Alfredo Bake

Depending on where you live you might be able to buy pre-shredded Brussel sprouts in a bag in the produce section at your grocery store. If not, it takes just a few minutes to prep.

  1. Cut off the bottom portion “tough” of the sprout
  2. Remove any loose leaves around the sprouts.
  3. Then work on thinly slicing the sprout to make it resemble shredded lettuce.

How To Pick Brussel Sprouts

If you are looking to cut up your own Brussel sprouts, let me share some pointers to help you pick the best sprouts! You can buy them on the stocks in some stores, and others have them removed from stocks.

  • Bright green in color
  • Feel that they have firmer heads
  • Reach for smaller heads they tend to offer a sweeter taste
  • Look for tightly packed leaves.

The biggest thing is to try to skip any sprouts that have spots or darker discolored leaves. Larger sprouts as well should be avoided.

Homemade Alfredo Sauce

I did create my homemade alfredo sauce for this low carb alfredo bake. With a few simple ingredients and a little cook time on the stove, you can whip up an easy alfredo sauce that will truly transform your dish. Jar alfredo can work if you find a lower carb sauce, but it won’t taste quite as good.

How to Make Keto Chicken Alfredo Casserole with Brussel Sprouts

Start by preheating your oven! Mix up the shredded Brussel sprouts and chicken together and pour into a greased pan.

Then in your saucepan add in butter and turn to medium-high heat. Saute your garlic for 30 seconds, then pour in your heavy whipping cream. Bring to a low boil and simmer for a few minutes until it begins to thicken. Add in salt and pepper to taste.

Remove sauce from heat and mix in your 1/2 cup of grated parmesan. Now you want to pour the alfredo sauce over the chicken and sprouts, stir well.

Then bake uncovered for 25 minutes or until the top is browned and bubbly. Then serve to your family.

Can You Freeze Chicken Alfredo Casserole

Unfortunately, the alfredo sauce will curdle a bit once it thaws from being frozen. So I don’t recommend making this and freezing any leftovers. If you don’t mind the texture difference, you could try and freeze a little and see how you like it.

Best Way To Store Leftover Chicken Alfredo Casserole with Brussel Sprouts

What I do is grab an airtight container and then scoop up any leftovers. It will keep for up to three days in the fridge. This is a great recipe to use for meal prepping for the week or have a quick dinner handy on nights you can’t work.

To reheat, you can do in the microwave or reheat in the oven. If you reheat in the oven cover the pan with aluminum foil to help it from drying out. Then heat till it is warmed through.

If you are a fan of alfredo, Brussel sprouts, and chicken, you will truly enjoy this dish. Give it a try and let me know how you like it!
