I am excited to share this recipe with from my friend Urvashi Pitre’s new cookbook Easy Keto in 30 Minutes which she gifted to me for review. All the opinions below are my own, and I was not paid for this review.

Prepping and baking the chicken casserole

Preheat the oven to 400-degrees, and spray a 9-inch square baking dish or pie plate with cooking spray. I did double this recipe, and used a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Break down the rotisserie chicken into its different parts, remove the skin to the trash, and remove the meat. Chop the chicken.

Combine the chopped chicken, thawed broccoli, cheese, cream, bouillon paste (if using), and pepper. Pour into your prepared pan. Top with sliced almonds, and Parmesan cheese.

Bake about 15 – 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Increase the cooking time for about 15 – 20 minutes if you doubled the recipe. Let stand 5 minutes prior to serving to allow it to thicken slightly.

My thoughts on this cookbook

I really enjoyed that this book had a great introduction for beginners about the basics of the Keto diet. This included how to calculate macros, suggestions for no-cook snacks, and how to get back to basics.

Overall, the easy to find ingredients and conveniently short cook times you should be able to find lots of recipes to fit a keto or low-carb diets. The meals offer lots of variation to keep things interesting. I really love that each recipe also indicates other special diet considerations like egg-free or soy-free recipes.
