Low Carb Chicken & Broccoli
 
Chicken and broccoli always make a pretty awesome combination of flavors. I love this low carb chicken and broccoli as it’s healthier for you than other options. You can easily steam up the broccoli florets and get this low carb meal ready in about half an hour. This makes a delicious quick meal for the evening hours when you don’t feel like getting into some three-course meal. This is also a delicious option to bring along as a side dish to a holiday gathering. The next holiday will be here before you know it, why not make this low carb chicken and broccoli for your next family gathering?

I love serving this simple dish for dinner because it’s quick to make and goes well with a side salad. This is the perfect recipe idea for back to school season when you simply don’t feel like making a big meal or have enough time to prep a more in-depth meal idea for dinner. Just gather up your ingredients, follow my instructions, pop the baking dish into the oven and BOOM, you have a quick and easy low carb chicken and broccoli dinner idea for busy weeknights.

I’ve made this probably five or six times now in the past few months, it has honestly become one of my FAVORITE dishes to both make and eat. I’ve never had any issues with the sauce being too runny and will actually add a bit more broth to make more of it because it’s so freaking delicious. I always eat about 3/4 of the dish myself and we literally never have leftovers. Thank you sharing such delicious recipe.

The flavour was great, but mine did not turn out anything like yours. The consistency was VERY watery so we added some corn starch to thicken it up some. Still it was more like a stew than a casserole. Not sure if it was error on my end, just thought I’d leave some feedback. Thank you for sharing!
