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. Is this fattening? I mean due to the full fat cheese and cream cheese, wont it be higher in calories? Would appreciate an answer anyone :)

  2. This reminded me of the Chicken Divan recipe, which is so delicious, but also so much more fattening and usually has more carbs too. Thank you for this!

  3. This looks delicious! Hope to make it tomorrow!!! I'll make it like this first, then try adding some spinach to it!!! . I love spinach!!! LOL Thanks for the recipe!!!

  4. Wonder if instead of the fried onions on top…. I might crush some pork skins to keep it low carb. Thinking I'll try that that next time. ;-)

  5. Been taking Weight Loss Green Store Tea 2 months. Dropped 8 lbs. Did not change eating habits or exercise. I do find taking it in morning is best. It tends to make sleeping a bit harder when taken later in the day.
