  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.
