Spiralized Broccoli and Chicken Cheesy Marinara Bake

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, chopped into cubes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large head of broccoli stem spiralized with Blade D, florets chopped
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth low sodium
  • 1/3 cup jarred marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • parmesan cheese to garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat the oil in a medium oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add in the chicken and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook for 7 minutes or until no longer pink on the inside and lightly browned. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside on a plate. Add in the broccoli and broccoli noodles, season with salt and pepper, and toss. Add in the chicken broth, toss, and cook for 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender.
  • Add back the cooked chicken and remove from the heat and pour over the marinara sauce and stir to combine.
  • Place the mixture into a small casserole dish or keep it in the skillet and top with the cheese and bake in the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
