  • 4 cups broccoli florets * from 2 small-medium bunches
  • 1.5 pounds chicken * cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons butter * divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic * minced
  • 1 shallot * minced
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup chicken bone broth
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar * shredded, approximately 1 cup
  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter *melted


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease or butter the inside of a medium size casserole dish.
  • Fill a medium size saucepan about halfway with water and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Add the broccoli florets and boil until bright green and crisp tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Drain and add the broccoli to the casserole dish.
  • Melt one tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Season the cubed chicken with salt and pepper and add to the hot skillet.
  • Cook, stirring often, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the chicken to the casserole dish with the broccoli and toss to combine.
  • Return the skillet to medium heat and add another tablespoon of butter.
  • Once melted, add the garlic and shallots and cook until slightly softened and fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the heavy whipping cream, chicken bone broth, and cream cheese. Cook, breaking up the cream cheese, until melted and smooth, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Pour the cheese mixture evenly over the broccoli and chicken in the casserole dish.
  • Top evenly with the cheddar cheese.
  • Mix the almond flour and 1 tablespoon of melted butter in a small bowl until it resembles crumbs.
  • Evenly spread the almond flour crumbs over the top of the casserole.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until everything is heated through and the almond flour crumbs are lightly browned.



Tips and Techniques for the Best Keto Chicken Divan

  • Shred the cheddar cheese from a block for the best melting and texture.
  • Break up and larger pieces of almond flour crumbs with a fork, after baking, if necessary.
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days for the best results.
