Low Carb Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Casserole A Perfect Creamy Blend of Chicken and Broccoli in a Simple Homemade Alfredo Sauce

Low Carb Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Casserole; A Perfect Creamy Blend of Chicken and Broccoli in a Simple Homemade Alfredo Sauce

When your husband sits in his chair in the evening and sighs with the statement, “That was REALLY good!” still remembering his dinner, you know you landed on a great recipe! Low Carb Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Casserole is that recipe!

This recipe is low carb, gluten free, and kid friendly.

The prep dishes can be washed while the casserole is in the oven so after dinner clean up is a breeze. That is one of my favorite things about a casserole!

I have seen the question from many of how to hide vegetables from the kids; this is a perfect recipe for that. Cook the broccoli on the softer side and it will blend right in.

If you want more of a variety of vegetables in your casserole, do half broccoli and half cauliflower.

In the video I used chicken from How to Make Chicken Broth and Have Cooked Chicken for the Freezer. It was very easy to just thaw it and put it in the casserole. 

Crock Pot Garlic Herb Chicken would also work very well (it is very easy to make extra), as would rotisserie chicken, grilled chicken or even canned chicken. You just need about 3 cups of shredded (or even cubed if you prefer) meat.

If you are in an extreme pinch for time, you could use a jar of Alfredo sauce instead of making your own but I really don’t recommend that. You will be missing out on the good, clean ingredients of homemade and you just simply can’t beat the flavor of this sauce.
