Carnivores Casserole

Carnivores Casserole ~ You want this recipe ! Best casserole with Chicken AND Bacon !

I have been making this Carnivores Casserole regularly since I found it on Pinterest months ago.

This dish has actually become one of our favorites !  And I simply do not know why I have never shared it on the blog.

I normally only serve it with rice, no other side dishes, and it is more than enough for 6 adults. Beware... this is one of those dishes which you can not stop eating until it's all gone!

When I decided to make it again, I went searching my Pinterest board for the recipe, as I had only a short-hand written copy. I found it after what felt like going through thousands of pins!

I wanted to give you the link to where I pinned it from which you can find HERE , but it seems the original recipe is no longer at this link.  Two reasons why I wanted to give you the link 1.) to give credit where it is due and 2.) I made a note that I adapted the recipe slightly and I wanted to see why and what I have changed.

Carnivores Casserole


250g Bacon Bits
5 Large Chicken Fillets, cubed
Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 TB Butter
2 t Garlic, minced
1 Onion, sliced

1 can (410g) Cream of Mushroom Soup

1 t Italian Herbs
1 TB Lemon Juice
1 cup Fresh Cream (double cream)

2.) Fry the Bacon Bits until crisp - remove from pan with a slotted spoon and keep aside.
3.) Using the same pan, stir-fry the Chicken until done, season to taste with Salt and Black Pepper - remove from pan and keep aside.

5.) Spread the Mushroom mixture on the bottom of the prepared oven dish - add the Chicken on top.
