Easy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole baked in a cast iron skillet. This simple and delicious keto dinner comes together in 25 minutes or less. Rich and hearty and only 6g total carbs.

I don’t think I’ve ever craved casseroles the way I am craving them this winter. And this creamy, cheesy (and easy!) Chicken Broccoli Casserole just shot to the top of the list for me. It’s the best kind of keto comfort food. Rich, hearty, and full of flavour and good fats.

I also love casseroles cooked or baked in a skillet. The busier I get, the more important it is to cut down on excess dishes. So if I can cook the full meal all in one pan, I am that much happier come dinner time.

1/4 cup butter, divided
12 ounces broccoli , coarsely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella, divided
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
3 cups cooked chopped chicken (about 1 1/4 lbs)

Set a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of the butter. Once melted, add the broccoli and sauté until bright green and just tender, about 4 minutes. Remove the broccoli to a bowl.
Melt the remaining butter in the pan and add the garlic, cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the cream and bring to a simmer, then cook until reduced by about half, 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir in 1/2 cup of the mozzarella and all of the Parmesan until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the broccoli and the chicken and top with the remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese.
Preheat the broiler. Set the pan about 6 inches from the heat and broil until the cheese is beginning to brown, 2 to 5 minutes (depends on how intense your broiler is!).
