Whole30 Baked Buffalo Chicken Casserole

 

This Whole30 Baked Buffalo Chicken Casserole has all of the traditional buffalo chicken flavor that you love baked into one healthy dish! Gluten free and low carb. 

Ok, so I admit. I have never been much of a buffalo chicken fan. Mostly, because I don’t like spicy foods! But, when I discovered a mild buffalo sauce a few months back…you better believe I started playing with that buffalo sauce! Buffalo salmon? Happened here. Might sound weird, but it was soo good! I also made lots of plain buffalo chicken salads with a bit of mayo, buffalo sauce, and chicken along the way too. So yum!

But something more traditional had to happen. Something like this Whole30 Baked Buffalo Chicken Casserole. So many heart eyes for this dish! 

Not only is this very easy to make, but it is healthy and makes a huge batch making it perfect for meal prep! Whole30 Baked Buffalo Chicken Casserole is also paleo, gluten free, low carb, high protein and dairy free! It might sound like it doesn’t have any flavor, but the flavors are mind blowing! (So mind blowing that I finished the pan in 2 days!)

Whole30 Baked Buffalo Chicken Casserole has all the flavors of a traditional buffalo chicken recipe. I finished the casserole off with the ranch dressing on top (and extra buffalo sauce), but you could easily mix some right into the dish too! And for those who aren’t following Whole30 you could finish this off with a bit of blue cheese! #AlwaysRoomForCheese

    This looks great although straight buffalo sauce is pretty spicy for me. Do you think it would work with frozen riced cauliflower or would that be too watery?

        My wife just made this tonight using the frozen riced cauliflower without thawing & draining & it came out great.

    Holy moley, this got me through my first week of whole 30 and I even made some compliant ranch dressing to use. I made a salad with it and buffalo chicken wraps with lettuce as the vessel, bits of tomato and celery inside with a drissle of ranch dressing. Thank you for a yummy recipe that can be used all week long when doubled. Plus the boyfriend is going on my next whole 30 with me and I needed some recipes that he may like, since he likes chicken wings I know he will love this recipe. Thanks again! =)

    What size of pan did you use? Also the buffalo sauce link is not working.
