If you’ve hung around my blog enough, you may have tried my Keto Crusted Buttery Chicken Casserole. It’s one of my most popular recipes, and I’ve received lots of feedback about it over the years. Although most people who try it enjoy it, quite a few people have told me that they wish it had a vegetable in it to make it a healthier casserole.

I’m here to deliver with this NEW Keto Buttered Chicken Casserole recipe! It’s a new-and-improved version of the original with added broccoli and cheddar cheese, plus an overall improved flavor and texture thanks to some recipe tweaks. While I like both versions, I think this one is the winner!
