Cheddar Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Dinner, Main Dish, Poultry


20 oz. chicken breast

2 tbsp olive oil

2 cups broccoli

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 cup cheddar cheese

1 oz. pork rinds

salt, pepper

1/2 tsp paprika

1 tsp oregano


Preheat your oven to 450°F.

If you haven’t shredded your chicken, simply cook the chicken breasts in an oiled pan and use 2 forks to pull the chicken apart into more bite sized pieces.

In a deep mixing bowl, combine shredded chicken, broccoli florets, olive oil and sour cream. Mix to combine thoroughly.

Place your chicken and broccoli into a greased 8x11 inch baking dish. Spread them into an even layer, pressing firmly. The casserole should be slightly packed.

Drizzle heavy cream over the entire layer. Add your seasonings of choice in this step as well. Salt, pepper, paprika and oregano will work very well for this recipe.

Add a cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the top of your casserole all the way up to the edges.

Into a ziploc bag, add 1 oz. of pork rinds and crush them with either your hands or a rolling pin.

Add these crushed pork rinds over the shredded cheese for a crispy casserole top.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes. The entire casserole should be bubbling slightly and the edges brown. Serve with a side of marinara sauce and enjoy!
