Kristie’s chicken Philly cheesesteak casserole

The classic Philly cheesesteak is made with beef, and this keto casserole can be made with either chicken or beef. This recipe is by far the favorite from my cookbook, Journey to Health: A Journey Worth Taking. Just a bite or two and you will quickly see why.

    This looks soooo good! May I used regular mayonnaise instead of keto mayo?also did you mean to say chicken thighs OR chicken breast’s instead of AND chicken breasts?

    Can we really use hamburger instead of chicken?
  3. Mary-Ann
    I just made this last night and the whole family loved it. I put about 2-3 tablespoons in a romaine lettuce leaf and ate as a taco. Delicious!

    900g or 2lbs of chicken for 12 people with no side?
    I made this recipe and it truly is very little.... I am glad I made it in bulk for the freezer and not for 12 guests :D
    Has anyone else thought that the portions are off on this recipe?
    For example, the keto lasagna is massive in comparison!!

    I made this last night and family loved it, even my non-Keto ones. The plan was to have this for lunch today but looks like kids took it for school lunch. Very tasty, good flavors that flow well together

    Swapped out the chicken for carne asada steak, it's our new favorite
