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.
One bite and your whole family is going to love this low carb chicken broccoli divan! It’s easy to prepare and is rich and filling. Did I mention, it reheats well too!
