Chicken Broccoli Casserole

This is a yummy recipe I adapted from lowcarbfamily.com.  The recipe states it serves 8 and has 3 net carbs per serving.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4-5 cups cooked chicken, cubed (small) (great with rotisserie chicken too)
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded colby jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fried onions (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. STEAM broccoli in the microwave 2-3 minutes.  If you like the broccoli crunchy, skip this step.
  2. PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9×13 pan with non-stick spray.  Place chicken and broccoli in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Saute onion in olive oil with salt and pepper.  When onion is soft and slightly brown (about 3-5 minutes), add cream cheese to saute 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.
  4. 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 fried onions on top.  Bake for 25-30 minutes until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbling.
