Easy, cheesy chicken broccoli casserole is on of my favorite recipes. Here I’ve made some adjustments so it’s low-carb and low calorie but has that great flavor and texture that makes it so addictive. You won’t miss the rice, I promise!
I love cheesy chicken broccoli casserole. I’ve been an addict since I first tasted it and it’s one of the recipes I am likely to make on a chilly rainy day… or a sunny warm day… or an in-between day.
As much as I love it, and as many times as I have made it, my friend Edye is the chicken broccoli casserole queen. Whenever we have an “occasion” she brings a huge pan of that casserole. My kids fight over it. In fact, the competition for her casserole is so great that they Instagram pictures of it so that the people that aren’t here (like her son who lives out of state) see that they are missing out.
As you can imagine, making chicken broccoli casserole is rather nerve wracking for me. It’s a standard that has been set high.
Every time that casserole hits my house I can predict that the low-carb eating plan is going out the window as fast as she walks it in the door. I am just being honest here. You know that saying Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels ? Well, I promise you they have not tasted Edye’s casserole.
I wanted something that would satisfy me when everyone was heaping the gooey, cheesy mixture onto their plates. So, I played around and I think I came up with an acceptable alternative to the oh-so-delicious cheesy chicken broccoli casserole. The real test was what Edye thought about it, right?
She loved it.
I strongly suggest you try this – soon. It really is delicious.
NOTE: Several people have said that this recipe is watery. This only happens if you don’t reduce the stock enough. Be sure that you’ve only got about 3 tablespoons of stock before you add the wine. After you add the wine you ‘ll simmer until it’s reduced back to about 3 tablespoons before you add the cream and the cheese. This recipe works but you have to spend the time simmering to reduce the liquids.
