The Best Keto Chicken Lasagna Casserole (Without Zucchini Noodles!)

Keto Chicken Lasagna Casserole

yield: 6 SERVINGS

prep time: 15 MINUTES

cook time: 15 MINUTES

total time: 30 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 box Natural Heaven Veggie Pasta Noodles
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup spinach chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2

In a large skillet over medium heat saute 2 tablespoons of butter, onions, mushrooms, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt until mushrooms are tender (about 5 minutes). Add shredded chicken and cook for an additional 2 minutes.  Set mixture aside in a bowl.

3

In the same skillet, over medium heat, add the rest of the butter, plus chicken broth and let simmer. Slowly add in cream and simmer for another 2 minutes. Add in xanthan gum, stirring occasionally. Add in 1 cup of shredded cheese and turn heat to low. The cheese will help thicken the sauce. Stir in chicken mixture and chopped spinach. Remove from heat.

4

In an 8x8 dish, add a layer of noodles, a layer of creamy chicken mix, a layer of shredded cheese and repeat until you have reached the top of the dish. You should get two layers of noodles topped with cheese. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbling.

scooping up keto chicken lasagna with spatula

A lasagna that is keto?  Yes!

Lasagna doesn’t always have to be about the carb-filled noodles, red sauce, and meat. This keto chicken lasagna has a different spin, and it’s a definite keeper. With a rich and creamy white sauce, this flavorful keto dish makes the best comfort food.

All you low-carb eaters are probably very familiar with zucchini noodles, but may be wanting to change things up. These Veggie Pasta Noodles from Natural Heaven (made from Hearts of Palm) will do just that. The veggie noodles bring all the pasta cravings to an end without all the carbs. Seriously, these noodles are the best!

The flavors of chicken, mushroom, and spinach are a great combo, but when you add this creamy sauce to the mix, WOW! This sauce hits all the notes.

HIP TIPS:

  •  Not a fan of mushrooms or spinach?  No worries. Just omit them and instead you could add in red peppers, jalapenos, and green chilies to bring the heat!
  • These Hearts of Palm Pasta Noodles knock it out of the park! If you are not wanting to buy in bulk on Amazon, you may be able to find them at your local T.J.Maxx HomeGoods, or Marshalls for around $3.99 per box.

    Where can I find xanthan gum and what does it do for the recipe?

    • Mabos

      Xanthan gum is a thickener. Basically it’s used in place of a corn starch slurry or a flour and butter roux. But be careful with it! A little goes a verrryyyyy long way, and too much gives food a slimy mouth feel as opposed to the velvety mouth feel you’re looking for. Personally I love the stuff, but it’s difficult to use in that I can never get it lump-less. 🤷‍♀️

  2. Fred

    You should be able to find it in the gluten free baking section at the grocery store. It is what gives bread its elasticity. In this dish maybe it’s being used as a binder?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! That’s correct! You can even find it in Walmart so all grocery stores will more than likely have it. Thanks for commenting!

  3. Jenifer

    Would a slurry with arrowroot powder be good too?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! That would work too!

  4. Michelle Graves

    Frozen or fresh spinach?

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Michelle! It looks like Ashley used fresh spinach in this recipe. Hope that helps!

  5. Michelle Graves

    Do you just use the noodles straight out of the package, or do they have to be cooked first?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! The noodles are vacuum sealed, so they are soft. They do not need to be cooked first. Hope this helps!

  6. loseittif

    Do the palm noodles have a weird taste?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! We didn’t try them by themselves, however there was no weird taste with the sauce and chicken added. Hope this helps!
