This Is Almost Too Fast
Guys, stop. Stop what you’re doing. Stop everything. This is insane. This might be my favorite keto recipe of all time.
Okay, first of all, chicken parm is just awesome. Like, you really can’t go wrong with chicken parm, am I right? Exactly. You know what else you can’t go wrong with? A casserole, am I right? Exactly. So, what is this recipe about to do? Take a guess.
If you guessed something to the tune of “blow everyone’s mind by combining chicken parmesan and casserole while still staying keto-friendly because life is just that awesome sometimes,” well then you may want to consider a career as a psychic because you just read my mind. Yeah, we’re going there and we’re going there full throttle. This is such a great meal for any day of the week — it’s delicious, it’s homey, it’s a crowd-pleaser and it is so damn easy to make it almost feels like cheating. Not to mention you can make this one off the cuff or freeze it a day ahead of time and then have it ready to go at a moment’s notice. Not that the prep is all that long or anything, it’s just nice to have the option if you need it.
