I really like this because it's easy to throw together on a busy weeknight and it's tasty! I great use for leftover chicken too and perfect for my ketogenic lifestyle! I halved the recipe and used a 8x8 dish and it turned out awesome! Read More

Based on the rave reviews I had high hopes when making this recipe. Unfortunately I didn't like it very much. If I am to be critical or suggest ways to improve the dish I'd start by suggesting that the amount of dill should be halved (at a minimum). As it was the dill overpowered all the other flavors.

I absolutely loved this recipe. I've only recently started eating per the keto diet and have been looking for easy hearty meals and this fit the bill perfectly. I will reduce the amount of the soup base I use next time though as the product they had at our store was a bit too salty for my liking. Read More

Assembled this the day before (without the shredded cheese on top) and refrigerated overnight. Baked the next day for about 15-20 minutes longer than the recipe called for and it came out great. I added the shredded cheese about 10 min before it was cooked. My family loved this dish. Read More

This has to be one of the best chicken and broccoli casseroles we've ever eaten. I stuck to the recipe other than adding four slices of pepperjack cheese and then adding the cheddar on top of it. Totally satisfying and filling and keto friendly. Read More

Husband and I are keto but teens and grandma are not yet EVERYONE LOVED this dish! Is says it serves 10 but the 5 of us put it away in one sitting. Adding it to our list of family favorites! Only change I made was to use lemon pepper seasoning and a little liquid smoke to the sauce since I didn't have the chicken soup base. Read More

This was quick and easy. Very filling and delicious. Plenty for leftovers and they lasted well in the refrigerator. Will cook again. Might add different veggies or some nuts. Read More

My entire family (ages 11 to 76) really loved this recipe. Kept it ALMOST the same adding cauliflower florets with the broccoli. I doubled the sauce to make a second smaller vegetarian version (I used cooked sweet potato chunks rather than chicken). For the chicken I sautéed 3 chicken breasts in olive oil and garlic. I threw on some shredded mozzarella and parmesan along with the cheddar on top. Will definitely make again. Read More
