This buffalo chicken and cauliflower keto casserole recipe is the perfect low-carb dish for those who like a little spice in their lives. The cream cheese sauce pairs perfectly with the spicy flavor of Frank’s Hot Sauce. And for those of you who can avoid the hot, peppery punch of one of America’s favorite hot sauces, no worries (pun intended)! This recipe is not too spicy. But if you’re a fan of the spices, I recommend adding an extra serving of Frank’s to your individual serving! ️
- Cut the cauliflower into pieces no larger than 1 inch and shred the chicken well. This allows the creamy Buffalo sauce to soak into every bite.
- Do not overcook the cauliflower. I literally steam them for 5 minutes, then immediately pour off the water and put them in the fridge.
- Make sure the creamy sauce permeates the cauliflower and chicken layer.

Bring some spice into your life with this tasty and spicy chicken and cauliflower casserole!
- 1 roast chicken, finely chopped (about 6 cups)
- 1 large head of cauliflower, divided into small florets
- 1/2 cup chopped green onions, separate (only the white and light green parts)
- 2/3 cup cooked and sliced bacon (about 6 thick slices or use pre-packaged real bacon for convenience)
- 1 Becher schwere Schlagsahne
- 1/2 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce
- 4 ounces cream cheese, diced ram ram ram ram ram ram
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 cups grated cheddar jack cheese, divided (2 cups, plus 1 cup for topping)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prepare the baking dish with baking spray.
Steam the cauliflower until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Put them in a colander and drain well. Set aside to dry further.
Heat the cream and Frank’s Hot Sauce over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes. Stir in cream cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cook until well blended. Then add 2 cups grated cheese and beat until cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes. Take it out of the oven. Set it aside.
Put the cauliflower, shredded chicken, half the green onions and half the bacon in a greased baking dish. Gently mix the ingredients until evenly combined (I use my hands). Pour the cream sauce evenly over the chicken and cauliflower mixture. If necessary, smooth the sauce with a spatula. Then, using a fork or spoon, stir the cream sauce into the bottom layer so it mixes with the chicken and cauliflower pieces. Sprinkle the rest of the grated cheese on top.
Bake 20 minutes until hot and bubbly. Sprinkle the casserole with the remaining onions and bacon. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Have fun!
Serve with sour cream, blue cheese or ranch dressing and extra hot sauce.
