Another cookbook you ask?

Why yes! I am a major cookbook junkie and who wouldn’t be with all the amazing real food and paleo cookbooks coming out nowadays!

Today, I am sharing a recipe from Juli Bauer’s {New} Paleo Cookbook. Juli’s publisher sent me a copy to review and it is really good. Though, I would expect nothing less from Juli! 🙂

Some of my favorite recipes are:

  • Coconut Lavender Pistachio Mini Donuts
  • Loaded Ranch Chicken Salad Wraps
  • Honey Lemon Sticky Chicken
  • Sweet & Crunchy Green Beans
  • Blueberry Lemon Poppy Seed Ice Cream
  • Caramel Apple Crisp

There are PLENTY of recipes to keep you satiated, as this book has 100+ recipes that are all gluten-free and paleo-friendly!

I have followed Juli for years on her site PaleOMG. She has such a witty personality and makes the paleo diet fun and delicious. She has created some absolutely amazing recipes in her new book and I think you are going to LOVE the Buffalo Chicken Casserole below.

What Juli Says About Her Buffalo Chicken Casserole

A couple years ago, I posted a recipe called Spaghetti Pizza Pie on my blog. I don’t know if it was the word pizza or that it includes only five ingredients, but people went cuckoo for Coco Puffs over that recipe. It became my top-searched recipe overnight, and it still is! But the best part about this recipe is that it is incredibly versatile. You can make all kinds of different casseroles with the same base—like the recipe you’ll find on page 94.

Total Time: 2 hours 5 minutes

If you love the flavors of classic buffalo chicken, you'll adore this casserole. Not only is it easy to make, but it's also always a crowd-pleaser!


  • 1 medium spaghetti squash (about 2½ pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, grass-fed ghee, or coconut oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium carrot, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • ½ medium yellow onion, minced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup hot sauce (wing sauce or hot sauce of your choice)
  • ¼ cup Super Simple Mayonnaise (page 274) or quality store-bought mayo
  • 3 large eggs, whisked
  • chopped scallions, for garnish
  • sliced avocado, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Place the squash cut side down on a baking sheet and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the skin gives when you press your finger to it. Remove the squash from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 350°F.
  3. Grease a Dutch oven or an 8-inch square glass baking dish with 2 tablespoons of the butter.
  4. Let the squash cool for 5 minutes, remove the seeds, and then use a fork to remove the threads and place them in the greased baking dish.
  5. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the garlic, carrot, celery, onion, and bell pepper and cook for about 10 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Add the ground chicken, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and cook, using a wooden spatula to break up the chicken into small pieces, until the chicken is no longer pink, about 8 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat, then add the hot sauce and mayo and mix well to combine.
  7. Add the chicken mixture to the baking dish and mix well with the spaghetti squash threads. Add the whisked eggs and mix everything together until you can no longer see the eggs.
  8. Bake for 1 hour or until the top forms a slight crust that doesn’t give when you press it in the middle. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped scallion and avocado slices.
