Keto Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Skillet

February 22, 2020Laura

I love one pan meals! They’re so easy to make and clean up is a breeze! I wanted something different for dinner last week, so I threw this skillet together. It turned out great, so I jotted down what I did and re-made it for the blog. If you love cheesy chicken meals, then this one will be a winner for you. It reminds me of a broccoli and rice chicken skillet that I made prior to starting keto, except without the carbs.

I kept the ingredients simple, but included things that made this skillet meal flavorful. You will need chicken breast, onion, garlic, frozen cauliflower rice, broccoli, broth, seasonings and some cheeses. I used a little cream cheese and grated parmesan, then topped the skillet with freshly shredded cheddar cheese. You can also garnish it with some parsley and red pepper flakes if you like. I served it immediately, but it was also great leftover for lunch the next day.

If you’re a fan of one pan meals, I have several to choose from that you can find here. Some of my favorites include: Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas, Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Skillet, Keto Chicken Enchilada Skillet and my Low Carb Mexican Chicken Skillet. My Sloppy Joe recipe is also a favorite in my household! There are a lot of yummy ones to choose from! If you give this Chicken and Broccoli Skillet a try, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
