How To Make A Low Carb Chicken Broccoli Casserole
I found this recipe on http://lowcarbfamily.com and it was so easy and very tasty.
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
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons fried onions (optional)
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.
