The Sundays we love in our family are the ones where I get to pop a Buffalo Chicken Casserole in the oven and we all get to sit around the TV watching sports or a movie.
Usually the fire is going, everyone is in sweats, and its laughable to think that ANYONE would leave the house.
I developed this Keto Friendly Buffalo Chicken Casserole because 1. everyone loves buffalo chicken and 2. I needed a new way to use all my cauliflower.
Plus this Buffalo Chicken Casserole is a great batch cooking item to pop an extra casserole in the freezer for a later time. It’s always nice to have a ready made dinner for unexpected visitors or if I’m late from work.
When I’m late getting out of the office, my Buffalo Chicken Casserole goes straight from the freezer to 350* oven and is on the table by 6pm.
Truth is I have a little help from my teen to get it in the oven while I’m driving home from work.
When she gets off the bus at 5pm and I text her to turn on the oven and pull the casserole right out of the freezer and into the oven for an hour…no thaw time.
The Buffalo Chicken Cauliflower Bake goes into the oven foil covered and then we take the foil off for the last few minutes and turn on the broiler for a nice browned and bubbly finish.
Serve your Buffalo Chicken Cauliflower Bake with a big green salad for a hearty meal and an easy clean up. Enjoy!
