Picking my favorite casserole recipe is like picking a favorite child, you just can’t do it. But, if I was really pressed, I’d have to say this is near the very top. The alfredo gives it a creamy, nutty flavor and the onion and broccoli get perfectly roasted and are such a compliment to the bacon. It really is just… really good, and it’s such a comfort food for me. The best part is that it’s a healthier weeknight dinner with no junk or alfredo sauce with sugar or additives. With under 10 ingredients, it’s quick and easy to throw together.
Ingredients in This Whole30 Chicken Bacon Alfredo Casserole
This recipe is really straightforward in that it doesn’t take much for it to all come together. The key here though is to have the chicken and bacon already cooked. I typically always have roasted or shredded chicken in the fridge as part of my meal prep each week, but if you don’t, you can microwave, boil or roast the chicken to cook in through quickly. The bacon will also take only a few minutes to pan fry if you haven’t done so already, and then simply set it aside to cool before you chop it.
You’ll also need broccoli, a white or yellow onion, and hash browns. I use frozen hash browns, and they are fairly simple to find in major grocery stores with no sugar added these days. Target and Walmart carry them in the freezer section. You could also shred your own potato by using a wide cheese grater.
Dairy-Free Alfredo Sauce
The last ingredient needed to pull the entire casserole together is the dairy-free alfredo sauce. You can opt to make your own, but I am loving the new Primal Kitchen Garlic Alfredo Sauce. It’s one of the 5 new pasta sauces they’ve created, and it’s gotta be my favorite. I love having it already in the pantry ready for nights I don’t feel like doing much other than dumping the sauce into a casserole or a skillet and having a healthy meal on the table.
Primal Kitchen also has another dairy-free alfredo flavor besides the garlic alfredo sauce, which is the classic alfredo. Both are made with cashew butter and are also keto friendly. The other sauces in their new pasta sauce line are tomato basil marinara, roasted garlic marinara and dairy-free vodka sauce.

How to Make this Whole30 and Paleo Chicken Bacon Alfredo Casserole
Once you have all of your ingredients prepared and the oven preheating, you’re going to add them into a 3-4 quart casserole dish after you’ve lightly greased it. Pour the alfredo sauce into the casserole dish and use a spoon to incorporate the sauce into the rest of the ingredients, being gentle as to not smash the vegetables while you stir to combine it.
After that, you’re going to pop it into the oven and let it bake for about 35 minutes, or until the top is slightly browned. This time may vary depending on what size casserole dish you used and how thick the casserole was in said dish, or by oven. This Whole30 casserole recipe is awesome as leftovers (seriously, so good), and it’s good in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can also double this recipe, and bake it for about 50 minutes if still using a 3-4 quart casserole dish.
