Keto Chicken Broccoli Casserole
I have been attempting to simplify the recipes I fix for my family.
That does not mean that I never fix a complicated recipe, but I know that my readers are looking for fast and simple!
When you have been at work all day, you don’t feel like coming home and making a complicated meal for your family. You want something simple and easy!
This casserole fits that perfectly!
Instant Pot Chicken Breasts
I used my Instant Pot to cook my chicken breasts, so they were cooked when I was ready to assemble the casserole.
I usually throw two frozen chicken breasts in my Instant Pot, season with salt and pepper, then add 1 cup of water. I process it at 45 minutes on manual pressure, then quick release (or sometimes I will let it naturally release).
(Edited to add: I don’t think it is necessary to process for a full 45 minutes. Recently, I have only been processing for 25-30 minutes, and they are still cooked through.)
After the chicken breasts have cooked, I shred them with my hand mixer.
(Really, just place the cooked chicken breasts in a mixing bowl and use your hand mixer [or stand mixer] to shred them. Be sure to not OVER-mix or they will turn to mush. But mixing for 10-15 seconds seems to work perfectly!)
All of that to say, my Instant Pot is one of my favorite kitchen tools!
(I absolutely love my Instant Pot!) If you do not have an Instant Pot, put it on your wish List!
An easy, Keto Chicken Broccoli Casserole
This dish took maybe 10-15 minutes to prep (including chopping the chicken and broccoli).
Then just mix everything in a big bowl, dump it in your pan, and put it in the oven! It is so simple!
If you do not have fresh broccoli, some of my readers have commented that they used frozen broccoli and it worked just as well.
In addition, chicken thighs work great to replace the chicken breasts in this recipe. You really cannot go wrong!
Sour Cream may be used to replace the mayonnaise, or you could even substitute some of it with greek yogurt to bump up the protein and reduce the calorie count a bit.
This Keto Chicken Broccoli Casserole is definitely a Heavy S for Trim Healthy Mamas, but totally on plan!
I love my Heavy S meals just as much as the next gal, but I am trying to balance them out with other fuel types as well (Hello FP’s and E’s!)

I like to serve this casserole with a big side salad. Since it already has a vegetable (broccoli) in the casserole itself, I consider the casserole and salad a complete meal!
