Cheesy-Chicken-Broccoli-Casserole

KETO CHICKEN BROCCOLI CASSEROLE

This recipe is similar to the Creamy Broccoli Cheesy Bake and basically only has cooked chicken added. These are two recipes that my children absolutely love.

There was a time in my life, a few years ago, where I didn’t plan my meals that well and ended up buying a rotisserie chicken from Woolworths in the evening on my way home. It was already too late and there wasn’t any time to cook. The rotisserie chicken and ready-made coleslaw, that was dinner most weeknights.

Now, I look at this recipe and think to myself how easy it is to just cook delicious meals with a little bit of planning. This is how I do it differently now.

I would cook a whole chicken, sometimes two, at a time. From these chickens, I can make this Keto Chicken Broccoli Casserole, Chicken Stir-Fry and the Loaded Egg Muffins. The Chicken Stir-Fry is so quick and easy if you do a little food prep before the time and have your veggies pre-cut, ready in the fridge. And, Loaded Egg Muffins are such good lunchbox fillers.

You can honestly take such a weight off your shoulders if you spend 10-15 minutes at the beginning of the week on planning your meals for the week. Take a look at this post on some Meal Planning Tips.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Butter divided
  • 340 g Broccoli coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 1/2 cup Grated parmesan cheese
  • Pink Himalayan Salt and pepper
  • 3 cups Cooked chopped chicken (approx 560g)

Instructions

  • Set a 10-inch ovenproof skillet or (a suitable pan that can go into the oven) over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of the butter. Once melted, add the broccoli and sauté until bright green and just tender, about 4 minutes. Remove the broccoli to a bowl.
  • Melt the remaining butter in the pan and add the garlic, cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the cream and bring to a simmer, then cook until reduced by about half, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup of the mozzarella and all of the Parmesan until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the broccoli and the chicken and top with the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
  • Preheat the oven grill. Set the pan about 15 cm from the heat and grill until the cheese begins to brown, 2 to 5 minutes (depends on how intense your grill is!).
