CHEESY BACON BROCCOLI CHICKEN

Do you ever get sick of making dinner knowing at least one person is going to complain? I do.

Here’s the thing. All my kids like broccoli. All my kids like cheese. And who doesn’t like bacon? Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

The first time I tried making this I thought baking the chicken in a cheese sauce would make it fabulous. The problem was that the cheese sauce will break down if heated too long which is why we wait until the end to add it.

It’s important to make sure your chicken is thin so that it cooks fast!

cheese sauce

The cheese sauce is super simple: butter, cream, garlic, and shredded cheese. Pour it on anything!

This Cheesy Bacon Broccoli Chicken is a low-carb comfort food meal that everyone loves! Imagine chicken topped with a creamy cheese sauce, bacon, and broccoli.

  • 4
    boneless skinless
    chicken breasts
  • 4
    slices
    bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2
    cups
    broccoli florets

Cheese Sauce

  • 1/4
    cup
    butter
  • 1/2
    cup
    heavy cream
  • 1/2
    teaspoon
    minced garlic
    (1/2 teaspoon dried garlic powder can be substituted)
  • 1
    cup
    shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with cooking spray and place chicken breasts on pan. Make sure they are thin or cut them so that they are thin. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until chicken is done and no longer pink.

  2. While chicken is cooking steam the broccoli in a steamer or in the microwave. You can throw it in a resealable bag (don’t close all the way) with a couple tablespoons of water in the microwave for a few minutes or until your desired tenderness.

  3. While chicken is cooking make the cheese sauce. In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium low heat. Stir in the cream and the garlic and cook until warm. Reduce heat to low and stir in the cheese until melted. Add salt to taste. Remove from heat.

  4. Once chicken is done, sprinkle broccoli over chicken and pour cheese sauce over it. Sprinkle bacon on top and serve.
