Add the broccoli florets to the pot once the water boils.

Boil the broccoli for about 5-7 minutes.

Check with a fork if your broccoli is done: prick one of the broccoli florets with a fork – if you can easily stick the fork in and pull it out again, your broccoli is good to go.

Step 4

Drain the broccoli through a kitchen sieve and set aside.

Melt a little bit of butter in a large frying pan and sauté the onions for about 5 minutes at medium to high heat until translucent.

After that, add the garlic to the onions and fry it for about 2 minutes.

Add the chicken to the pan as well and fry it for about 5 minutes while stirring constantly.

Set the pan aside.

Step 6

Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C.

Step 7

  ml water, ml heavy cream, tsp chicken bouillon, tsp salt, tsp pepper

  fl oz water, fl oz heavy cream, tsp chicken bouillon, tsp salt, tsp pepper

   tsp xanthan gum

   tsp xanthan gum

Add the xanthan gum to the sauce and whisk thoroughly until the sauce has thickened and no clumps of xanthan gum are left.

If you don’t have a whisk, a small extra step can help to make sure you won’t find any clumps of xanthan gum in your sauce.

Add about 1-2 tablespoons of your sauce into a separate bowl and sprinkle the xanthan gum into the bowl as well.

Mix the small amount of sauce with the xanthan gum and add it back to the rest of the sauce.

Mix again until the rest of the sauce has also thickened.

Step 9

Fill the chicken and broccoli into a casserole dish and pour the sauce over it.

Stir once again to make sure that the sauce is distributed evenly throughout your dish.

Step 10

  g shredded cheese

  oz shredded cheese

Spread the grated cheese evenly on your casserole and then bake in your preheated oven for about 15 minutes.

Step 11

Serve your keto chicken broccoli casserole right after it comes out of the oven.

Storage

Cover your casserole dish with plastic wrap or fill the rest of your casserole into an airtight container and store it in the fridge, where it will keep for about 3-4 days.
