Paleo Barbecue Chicken Casserole

This Paleo Barbecue Chicken Casserole is healthy, comforting and fulfilling. Flavorful barbecue sauce combines with tender chicken and crispy bacon to make an ultimate meal! Whole30, gluten free, dairy free and incredibly delicious!

The first time I made this is was completely random. I had some of my barbecue sauce that needed to be used up and also had a spaghetti squash needing to be used. I threw the two together with some cooked chicken and it came out so good. Then I actually made it using measurements, adding bacon (my hubby’s great idea) and wow- amazing!! I actually used Beef Bacon from US Wellness Meats and was so impressed with not only the flavor, but the ingredients. It’s hard to find bacon without added sugar, but they have some and it’s truly delicious! I highly recommend trying it!

If you’re familiar with barbecue chicken pizza, that’s where I got my inspiration. It always has red onions, bacon, and chicken- such a great combination! I took all those flavors and ingredients and packed them into a healthy casserole that is so satisfying and tasty.

This dish does take a little bit of time to prep, but it’s so worth it. I often hear people say they get bored on a Whole30, or that their meals have no flavor. Well, this meal definitely isn’t boring or lacking flavor. And it is just as good reheated the next day.

My Paleo Buffalo Chicken Casserole has quickly become one of my most popular recipes- you guys love it and I love seeing so many people make it! I think you’ll love this one just as much. There is so much flavor, it makes a ton (great for leftovers) and it’s Whole30 compliant. Yay! Just make sure to use a clean barbecue sauce- HERE is the link to mine and I’ve also seen one by Tessemae’s sold at Whole Foods that is Whole30.

A common question I get with my other casseroles is why the eggs? They are just for binder- spaghetti squash is quite watery and the casserole wouldn’t hold together as well without them. Yes, you can leave them out, but it probably won’t cut as well or be pretty. I know some people can’t have them due to allergies or sensitivities, so they aren’t crucial for the taste, just the texture.

This casserole is hearty and packed with flavor! You will love it!

Ratings & Comments

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'm still a little confused about the measurement for the coating of flour. It does say 1/3 cup flour, but it also says, "divided." Then in the directions, it says to combine 2 tbsp flour and 2 tsp salt for the coating. In step 4 it says to combine remaining ingredients, which I assume means the 1/3 cup of flour, minus the 2 tbsp for the coating. How can 2 tbsp of flour be enough to coat 8 pieces of chicken, especially if you are coating both sides of the chicken? Thank you.

Hi there! The ingredient measurements are correct in this recipe. The first time that the chicken is coated, make sure that it is dry. The remaining flour will be used to ensure a thicker coat when baking. Enjoy!

I've fried alot of chicken in my time, usually coating it in a flour mixture of some kind. I'm not sure how you can coat 8 pieces of chicken in 2T. of flour. Maybe I'm reading the recipe wrong. I am going to try it. I'll get back to you with results. It sounds really good!

What's Hot

Short on time? Use a rotisserie chicken!

Most of the time we have shredded chicken on hand for easy meals throughout the week but on days when we don’t and are short on time, we love to take the easy route and use a rotisserie chicken. Just be sure to remove the skin before shredding.

BBQ Chicken Casserole

I don’t often feel like I’m getting older, but this weekend…I feel old. My body feels old. After eating heavy Thanksgiving food, then doing over 270 wall balls in one day, then going out for a girls night out, having a couple cocktails and dancing in heels all night long, then starting Monday off with air dyne sprints…I feel really freaking old. I woke up this Tuesday morning and just laid on the couch for 40 minutes, staring out the windows because my body felt too exhausted to function yet. I mean, the clouds are pink outside so it’s pretty wonderful to look at, but still. This body needs a relaxing dip in a hot tub…OH WAIT WE GET OUR HOT TUB THIS WEEKEND. Squeeeeeeelllll!

Feeling like I’m old AF was totally worth it though. My knees may be broken from dancing in heels all night long, but it was the best night out in Colorado that I’ve had in quite some time! I have no idea how I danced in heels all the time in college. I’m not much of a bar girl anymore, I just feel like I can drink cocktails and talk to friends in the comfort of my own home instead of at an annoying bar. But when my friend invited me to a 90’s dance party at a bar that has really tasty cocktails, I couldn’t say no. And it.was.awesome!! If you lived through the 90’s, you probably remember a lot of the music, but I bet you forgot about a lot of it, too. This dance party had every artist from Britney Spears to Alanis Morissette to TLC to boy bands, people who only sing in vowels, and music that you thought was totally punk like Crazy Town. It was so freaking awesome to sing every word from every song. And all I did was jump for 3 hours straight. I won’t be able to do that again for another few months while my knees heal. Cute.

Funny that I’m saying I feel too old because I just talked about feeling too young on my podcast this week. I said that I still feel too young to raise another human and that I’m still questioning even having children. It seemed to be quite the controversial topic because all sorts of people left comments both on the blog and on my social media. It was really interesting to see how many people felt the same way OR had children and still understood why I felt that way. It was just so cool to hear other people’s experiences and the thought process they’ve gone through with having children or not. So thank you to all you awesome people who left a comment on the topic!

But I need your help this coming week with my podcast! I’m doing another random reader questions episode and I’d love to hear from you and any random questions you have! So far I have questions that range from paleo household staples, breast augmentation, microblading, CrossFit, Jackson, and how to stay motivated! So a huge range and I’d love to add more questions to the list! So feel free to leave them below and I’ll add them to the list!

PS – this casserole is stupid easy. And totally delicious. Make it now.

BBQ Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Well it happened. I had to put on a sweatshirt Friday. I’m not sure how I felt about that. Part of me was a little excited for the cool temperatures to be back, but then the other part of me was crying, “no not yet!” We’ve had such a perfect summer here in Colorado and I really hate to see it leave. This was the first summer where I didn’t complain about being hot every day. In fact most of the summer I had our windows open all day long, that’s unheard of in Arizona! But, there are things I look forward to about fall, like casseroles, especially this BBQ Chicken Enchilada Casserole.

This casserole is the perfect way to ease into cooler temperatures. While it’s by no means cold out right now, the morning and evenings are having me reaching for my sweatshirt. The same goes for food. While I’m getting an itch to start more baking and comfort foods, I’m still craving BBQ and everything grilled. BBQ Chicken Enchilada Casserole is a perfect combination of BBQ and delicious casserole comfort food. It also combines my two loves, Mexican food and BBQ. This casserole is a dinner everyone can appreciate. Moms and dads will love it because it’s super easy to make. No rolling up individual enchiladas, only to have the corn tortillas crack and break as you do it (who hasn’t had that happen like every single time you make enchiladas?). Nope, forget the rolling, we’re stacking and purposely tearing tortillas apart! Kids will love the casserole because of all the kid friendly flavors of chicken, cheese, and BBQ sauce. I don’t think I’ve met a kid yet who doesn’t love something cheesy for dinner. As an added bonus, if you are gluten free, this meal is a great option for you! Just be sure to check the enchilada sauce and BBQ sauce to make sure it is gluten free, or make your own.

To make the casserole you start by shredding a couple of cooked chicken breasts in a large bowl. To the chicken, add black beans, defrosted frozen or fresh corn, and some chopped up cilantro. In a small measuring glass, whisk together a cup of red enchilada sauce and a 1/3 of a cup of your favorite BBQ sauce. Pour the sauce mixture over the chicken mixture and fold it together with a spatula. That’s all there is to the filling, easy right? In a sprayed casserole dish, either a 9࡯ or a 2.5 quart size, add 3 of the 9 corn tortillas, you’ll probably have to tear one of them to fill in any gaps. On top of the tortillas, evenly spread a 1/3 of the chicken mixture. Top the chicken mixture with about a 1/3 of a cup of cheddar/jack cheese blend. Repeat this process until all of the tortillas and filling are gone, ending with the chicken mixture and cheese on top. Is it just me or is the cheesy, golden, crispy crust on top of a casserole the best thing ever?! If it was up to me I would just peel the top cheese layer off and eat that for dinner.

If you are like me and still unsure if you are ready for the cold weather to return, but are looking forward to all the comforting food, ease into the changes with this amazing BBQ Chicken Enchilada Casserole!
