Keto Chicken Broccoli Spout


Keto Chicken Broccoli Spout

I don't think I've ever longed for runs the way I'd like to see them this winter. And this creamy, cheesy (and easy!) Chicken broccoli casserole just shot to the top of the list for me. It is the best kind of keto comfort food. Rich, savoury and full of taste and good fats.

I also love spreads cooked or baked in a pan. The busier I get, the more important it is to reduce excess dishes. So if I can cook the full meal in a pan, I'm so much happier come dinner time.

1. Set a 10-inch oven-proof pan over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons butter. After melting, add the broccoli and sauté until light green and only tender, about 4 minutes. Put the broccoli in a bowl.

2. Melt the remaining butter in the pan and add the garlic, boiling until fragrant, for about 1 minute. Add the cream and bring to the boil, then cook until reduced by about half, 3 to 5 minutes.

3. Stir in 1/2 cup of mozzarella and all parmesan until melted. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the broccoli and chicken and sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.

4. Preheat the broiler. Set the pan about 6 inches from the heat and broiler until the cheese starts to brown, 2 to 5 minutes (depends on how intense your broiler is!).
