Sometimes, I overestimate what my family will eat. No worries, a casserole will help use up those leftovers! You may use any combination of cooked chicken--dark and white, all dark, or all white. I used chicken thighs. Add some leftover cooked broccoli and some pantry items, and you are there. It's a 'keto' recipe, to boot!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Pour olive oil into a 9x13-inch baking dish and spread all over the bottom and sides. Place cooked chicken in a single layer in the bottom of the dish. Distribute cooked broccoli evenly over the chicken and sprinkle with almonds.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add cream; cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in cream cheese pieces until melted and smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese and stir until melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over chicken, broccoli, and almonds; top with crushed pork rinds.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes.

Pretty good. I added a bit of ranch dressing mix. What would be unhealthy would be canned soup flour vegetable oils carbs especially for diabetics. Read More

We didn't like almond slices (people thought they were chicken bone chips). Mixed feelings about the pork rinds - next time might make half with pork rinds for the keto dieters, and just bread crumbs (or nothing) for the non-keto folks. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly. It was good but we found that there was too much chicken for the amount of broccoli. Next time we will add other vegetables like mushrooms red pepper and maybe zucchini as well as the broccoli. Read More
