Dinner can get really boring at times, and finding dishes that satisfy adults and kids alike can be hard. It’s especially difficult to try and keep it healthy! That’s why I love this absolutely delicious Easy Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Bake. It’s filled with meat and veg, but it gets its flavor from a simple ranch sauce and bacon! Yum! What’s not to like? It’s also extra awesome because it fulfills a number of dietary requirements. It’s safe (in moderation) for a Keto or LCHF diet, Atkins or other low carb, and it’s not even that high in calories compared to other casseroles!

It’s a very simple recipe to make, as well. Like other casseroles, it’s all about layering. The ingredients are all easily found in fridge, freezer and pantry.

The sauce is a combination of cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, seasoning and cheese. How yummy does that sound?

You can top it with some diced or sliced tomatoes for some extra pizazz. I love baby tomatoes sliced in half. It adds some color, a bit of sweetness and a nice cold contrast to the hot casserole.
