Chicken And Broccoli Alfredo is one of my favorite low carb dishes. Made with homemade Alfredo sauce, fresh broccoli and juicy chicken, it is a simple low carb dish that is full of flavor. Serve with a side salad and dinner is done!
Chicken And Broccoli Alfredo
Doing this lazy Keto thing has come with a few challenges, I am not going to lie about that! Thankfully I have found many tasty things that I am enjoying and so I do not really feel like I am on a diet at all. However I have been wanting Alfredo with pasta for like a week now.
Nothing I was eating was making that craving go away and it totally did not help that the kids have been begging for it as well. I knew my Alfredo sauce is keto friendly but pasta is not.
I also was not in the mood at all for Zoodles, no matter how good they are they don’t get me my fix when I really want pasta. So I came up with this Chicken And Broccoli Alfredo that totally hit the spot.
Low Carb Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo
I don’t have time to make 2 separate dinners, there is just no way that I can do that. I would lose my mind, plus I would need an extra like 4 hours a day that we all know is not possible. So when I am making dinners I am making meals that they can enjoy and that I can enjoy too.
All of the Keto friendly meals I have been making only need a slight change for either them or myself to have what we need. So when I make a pasta dish for them, I skip the pasta part for me and make sure the rest is Keto friendly. If we are having burgers then I make mine hamburger Lettuce wraps instead of having a bun.
It is actually quite easy to adjust things and not have to make multiple meals. I am working on sharing the recipes with you guys that I have been making and eating as fast as I can get them posted. I don’t want any of you who want to do Keto to feel like you have to miss out on yummy food or that you are going to be stuck in the kitchen for endless hours making multiple meals because your family is not doing keto with you.
Easy Chicken and Broccoli Dinner!
This Chicken And Broccoli Alfredo is really easy to make and it is really filling. I was shocked at how full I was when I didn’t have any pasta at all. I did make pasta for the kids and they added the chicken and broccoli to their pasta with the Alfredo Sauce.
The kids of course love to dip bread into Alfredo sauce, so I always make a double batch of sauce, but I didn’t mind skipping my bread either. Then add a side salad with your dressing, I personally prefer ranch dressing but your favorite keto friendly dressing is all you need on top of you salad.

Once melted stir it until you have it as smooth as you can get it. Pour in the whipping cream and turn the heat to medium-high.
Whisk together until butter and cream have combined and until the sauce bubbles slightly.
