Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli, and Egg Skillet – A healthy-ish brunch, lunch, or breakfast-for-dinner recipe that combines juicy chicken, crisp-tender broccoli, eggs, and melted cheese!!

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more if necessary
  • 1 medium sweet Vidalia onion, diced small
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, diced into bite-sized pieces
  •  3 to 4 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Bisquick or similar pancake mix (or Google how to make your own Bisquick)
  •  2 cups shredded cheddar cheese blend (I used a Mexican blend)
  • 1 tablespoon green onions, thinly sliced for garnishing

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. To a large oven-proof skillet, add the oil, onions, and cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, or until the onions are beginning to soften; stir frequently.
  3. Add the chicken and cook until done; stir and flip frequently to ensure even cooking.
  4. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until fragrant; stir nearly constantly.
  5. Add the broccoli, evenly season with salt, pepper, stir to combine, if you need a bit more oil because things look dry add a bit more, cover the skillet with a lid, turn the heat to low, and allow the broccoli to steam for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender.
  6. While broccoli is steaming, to a medium bowl, add the milk, eggs, Bisquick, and whisk vigorously until smooth and free from lumps. Pour the milk-egg mixture over the chicken and broccoli in the skillet.
  7. Place skillet in the oven and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until the milk-egg mixture is set; exact baking time will depend on the exact type of skillet used, oven, climate, etc. Don’t overbake.
  8. Remove skillet from the oven, evenly sprinkle with the cheese, and return skillet to the oven for about 5 to 8 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
  9. Evenly garnish with green onions and serve immediately. Recipe is best fresh but will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 day
