How To Make A Low Carb Chicken Broccoli Casserole


Chicken Broccoli Casserole

I found this recipe on http://lowcarbfamily.com and it was so easy and very tasty.

INGREDIENTS

4-5 cups cut up cooked chicken
2 cups broccoli florets
1 medium onion, diced
8 ounces softened cream cheese
1 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 cups shredded colby jack or cheddar cheese
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons fried onions (optional)

METHOD

Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Spray a 9 X 13 pan with non-stick spray. Place chicken and broccoli in a large mixing bowl. You can use fresh raw broccoli if you want it to be crunchy, or you can steam it or microwave 2-3 minutes to soften. I used frozen broccoli so I cooked it 3 minutes in the microwave first.

Sauté onion in olive oil with salt and pepper. When onion is soft and slightly brown (about 3-5 minutes), add cream cheese to sauté pan. When cream cheese is melted, whisk in chicken broth until the mixture is smooth. Allow to simmer for about a minute, or until sauce thickens slightly.

Add cream cheese and onion mixture to chicken and broccoli. Mix well. Add 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese and mix again. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Spread evenly in baking pan. Add remaining 3/4 cup cheese and optional fried onions on top.

Bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbling.

  1. We have this in the oven right now. Wow this was really great the whole family loved it and the kids asked for seconds. Perfect for leftover rotisserie chicken and we even used the dark meat too.

  2. how did you arrive at net carbs 3g? I thought there would be more because of the cream cheese and regulate cheese I counted at least 10 plus. maybe my math is wrong. but I made this with pork rinds quite yummy. thanks. are you still doing keto?
