A French dish, the word “casse” means pan, originally it was all vegetables plus many cheeses gathered together in a frying pan and put in the oven.Keto Cheesy Chicken Parmesan Casserole
The style of the recipe didn’t change much since its development in 1866, made, baked and eaten from the same scoop makes it more home-style cooking. The only thing that has changed is the number of ingredients. The original casserole was semi-vegetarian, but the recipe started to contain meat or seafood.
You are free to wisely add some ingredients to your taste. The most important thing to keep in mind while making any kind of layered dish, that contains such “heavy” ingredients like meat, is that the bigger and thicker products are the first layer and the base for the rest.
This recipe is high in fat and protein, we use cooked chicken (either breast or thigh), parmesan, mozzarella as the main ingredients. To make it a complete meal, it’s best to serve this dish with a low carb side such as salad or leafy greens.
Or you can add a layer of veggies (such as cauliflower, broccoli or spinach) inside this casserole, between the meat layer and the cheese topping for a complete meal.
We use low carb marinara sauce for this dish. It should be homemade with no added sugar.
