Low-carb Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Casserole

I had to alter several recipes to get this. The hard part was to get a low carb casserole. Without flour to thicken things up, most casseroles end up runny. I ended up using a cream cheese and parmesan cheese sauce to thicken things up and it worked great. For the hard-core low-carb people out there, you can leave off the fried onions and add an extra layer of shredded cheese for a topper instead.
