Keto Pesto Chicken Casserole Recipe

Doesn’t chicken get boring sometimes? Not with this Keto Chicken Pesto Casserole recipe! This is a really easy recipe to whip up too. In fact, I wanna say it only takes about 10 minutes to prep it!

I just made a double batch of this recipe last night and the kids won’t mind leftovers for lunch today! In fact, they insisted! That’s when you know chicken is not boring. Of course, it’s hard to go wrong with this recipe too though. Anything with cream cheese, sour cream and pesto will taste pretty darn amazing! Go ahead and “wow” your family tonight with this dinner recipe! You will be a dinner hero! Promise!

Let me also mention that even though we used chicken breasts in this recipe, you can use any part of the chicken you want. It will still taste amazing. I’ve been known to buy the skinless, boneless chicken thighs and use these too. I love dark meat. Oh, and the chicken breasts will never be dry when you make it in a casserole like this too. It really is super simple.
