Creamy Chicken and Broccoli

chicken and broccoli

This is a really creamy dish, and although it’s not low exactly low calorie, it doesn’t stack up too well considering the creamy cheesy taste.   It’s fabulous with pasta, rice or I quite like it with roasted sweet potato wedges.

I’ve put that it serves 3, or what we normally end up with is 2 evening meals and 2 lunches!

Ingredients – serves 3

  • 2 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 300g diced chicken
  • 300g broccoli florets
  • Pinch salt & pepper
  • Clove garlic crushed
  • 150ml low fat crème fraiche
  • 40g grated parmesan


  1. Lightly brown bacon in a large pan, you shouldn’t need any oil but if your pan is very dry add a splash of water
  2. Add onion and cook on low for about 5 mins till onion is transparent – again just add a splash of water if it starts to stick
  3. Remove from pan and then add chicken to pan and cook until just white (it doesn’t need to be fully cooked through at this point)
  4. Meanwhile put broccoli into a pan of water and remove as soon as the water re-boils.
  5. Add broccoli, salt & pepper (to taste but remember cheese is salty) and crème fraiche to pan, and warm through – do not boil
  6. Stir in parmesan and serve immediately
