Creamy Broccoli Chicken Melt

Simple, quick, and delicious. To make this creamy broccoli chicken melt, sprinkle cubes of chicken thighs with garlic powder, let those edges caramelize, toss in your broccoli, and top with cheddar cheese.

The “melt” happens as cheese softens in the pan. Top with sour cream and red pepper flakes for keto perfection.
