Chicken Broccoli Casserole Recipe

Ingredients

Keto Chicken Broccoli Casserole
Ingredients for 5 servings

  • 1 lb Rotisserie chicken meat, no skin and chopped
  • ~900g raw cauliflower rice, steamed and drained (VERY IMPORTANT)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups broccolini florets
    • SUB: broccoli florets; chopped asparagus spears
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 2/3 cup diced red onion
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
    • SUB: 2 teaspoons dried rosemary (or your favorite herb)
  • 4oz 2% cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup whole milk (or heavy cream if you need the calories)
  • 7oz 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  •  sea salt & pepper to taste
Steps
  1. Set oven to 400F.
  2. Remove skin from a Rotisserie chicken and pull out the white meat.  Chop it into pieces.  Set aside.
  3. Cook frozen cauliflower rice according to the instructions given.  Then DRAIN the cauliflower, squeezing out any excess moisture/water.
  4. Place all the ingredients – except for the cheddar cheese topping – in a large bowl.  Continuously stir until well-mixed.  If needed, you may add tablespoons of cream cheese but just account for the additional macros.
  5. Spray a baking pan with a little avocado oil or olive oil, and add the casserole filling.  Top the casserole with cheddar, then cover with foil.
  6. Cook covered for about 30 minutes, but remove the foil covering for the final 5 minutes to brown the top.
  7. Enjoy hot, fresh out the oven!
