Keto Friendly Chicken Divan is the perfect casserole!

This Keto friendly chicken divan recipe is perfect for when you need to reduce the carbs and you want to enjoy classic casseroles you have loved your whole life. This recipe was originally created with broccoli, almonds, the classic and carb-heavy Mornay sauce.

In this recipe, the sauce is substituted for mayonnaise. The mayonnaise helps to make the whole casserole stay moist and full of flavor. You won’t miss having pasta or other starch in this casserole.

Low Carb Chicken Casserole perfection

This recipe uses pre-cooked chicken. I often simply poach inexpensive bone-in split chicken breasts for about 20 to 25 minutes and use these. The split chicken breasts are a lot cheaper than the boneless skinless chicken breasts we so often buy.

I then quickly remove the skin and ribs and throw the chicken into my Bosch mixer with my cookie paddles, and it beautifully shreds the chicken breast. To make cooking this even easier, I purchase frozen broccoli and use that for the recipe. Frozen broccoli has already been blanched, so it makes cooking a breeze.

    I made this yesterday at home and guess what it turned out really amazing and delicious, but I used fresh broccoli which didn’t make any big difference in the taste.
    Thank you and keep sharing:)

    Can fresh broccoli be used instead of frozen? Also, I noticed that in the Nutrition Facts, it has a lot of sodium, cholesterol, and the calories from fat are very high…is this healthy? I value your opinion. Thank you in advance…

      Yes, you can use fresh broccoli, you will need to steam it before simply baking it. This recipe is high fat and higher protein. This recipe is meant for people following the low-carb and keto diet. Both of those two diets emphasize fat and protein. If you are following a low-fat diet, this isn’t the recipe that is appropriate for your personal diet.
