Easy low carb chicken, broccoli, and cheddar skillet! The best simple dinner to whip up that will give you lots of protein and veggies packed into one meal.
This meal takes one of the best flavor combinations, broccoli and cheddar, and adds shredded rotisserie chicken and bone broth for a big protein boost. The use of rotisserie chicken in this dish makes the prep and cooking super quick and easy, which is a huge bonus!
Can I make this dairy free?
Yes! Sub the butter for vegan butter or olive oil, and use your favorite meltable dairy free cheese.
This dish is naturally gluten free, grain free, soy free, and nut free, too!
