Bacon, Broccoli, and Chicken Casserole

Bacon, Broccoli, And Chicken Casserole

“Green” might not be the first word that typically comes to mind when you think of a casserole. “Beige” would probably be more representative of the typical casserole experience. But this recipe really is green – a beautiful, deep, velvety green – and it tastes as good as it looks.

Instead of a big pile of noodles, the recipe substitutes broccoli and spinach – and you can really get free and easy with the amount of spinach here, because it wilts down to almost nothing in the pan. Got the end of a bag? Just throw it all in! It’s great for you anyway. The chicken and bacon here give the whole thing a nice rich flavor, and the creamy sauce is a dairy-free alternative to cream that still delivers the same comfort-food value. This would be good with baked sweet potatoes if you’d like some carbs with that, or maybe with soup if you’re looking for a lower-carb option.
