Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In double boiler, over hot, not boiling water, blend cream, half-and-half mixture, mascarpone, salt and garlic powder until smooth and hot; stir in 3/4 cup Parmesan. Pour 1 cup cream sauce over broccoli; top with chicken in even layer. Cover chicken with rest of sauce; sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake at 350 degrees 25 to 30 minutes or until piping hot. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Pass remaining Parmesan at table. If desired, in last 10 minutes of baking, top with buttered, toasted low carb bread crumbs or crumbled Lean Protein Chips.
