Pesto-Chicken-feature

Sticking to a keto and low-carb diet can be challenging. But not anymore! We have some tasty recipes that will let you stick to your goals but still indulge in scrumptious meals all year long. So many recipes are reliant on carbs and foods that will squash your diet. But these recipes have found creative and delectable alternatives to keep you satisfied and healthy, no matter your cravings.

Keto bread made with cauliflower

Wanting to follow your keto diet but fighting cravings for homemade bread? With this recipe for keto bread made with cauliflower, you can stay on track with your diet and indulge in a slice of freshly baked bread. The secret here is almond flour and psyllium husk. They are two essential ingredients in a satisfying low-carb bread recipe. Neither causes spikes in blood sugar levels like traditional white flour does. These ingredients also give this keto bread its hearty taste and texture. Better yet, the dough for this bread is made in one bowl, making for easy prep and clean-up.


Chicken Alfredo spaghetti squash

If you weren’t hungry before reading this recipe for chicken Alfredo spaghettti squash, from The Gunny Sack, you soon will be. Starchy carb-laden pasta has been brilliantly swapped out for low-carb (and healthy) spaghetti squash. The yellow squash roasts up quickly in the oven, and then long tender strands of delectable pasta-like squash are scooped out and added to your favorite recipes. The squash flavor is mild, so it does a wonderful job of taking on the flavor of any sauce added to it. If you are craving luscious, rich and creamy comfort food, give this recipe a try.

All this goodness is cozily wrapped up in fresh, crisp lettuce. The cool lettuce is a fantastic contrast to the hot savory Szechuan beef, and all of this makes for a really satisfying, low-carb and keto-friendly dinner.

Keto fried chicken

Crispy crunchy fried chicken is possible, even on a keto diet. In this recipe for keto fried chicken, from The Wicked Noodle, the traditional flour breading is replaced with whey protein isolate. Another common substitution is crushed pork rinds. Plan ahead, because before the frying begins, the chicken is first brined in pickle juice for 8–24 hours. Brining the chicken helps to keep it moist and adds tons of tangy pickle flavor to the chicken. Mix the beaten egg, mayo, Dijon, salt and pepper, and then add in your whey protein isolate (or crushed pork rinds, if you prefer) and get to frying.

Pesto chicken

This is a perfectly quick and easy midweek meal that will make it easy to stick to your low-carb keto lifestyle even when things get hectic. This recipe for 3 ingredient pesto chicken, from Your Homebased Mom, has just three ingredients: chicken, pesto and mozzarella. It can’t get easier than that! The pesto can be one you have made in advance and frozen, or a store-bought jar works just as well, too. Simply layer the chicken in a baking dish with the pesto, sprinkle with fresh mozzarella, and bake. The pesto helps to keep the chicken moist, tender and full of flavor. Serve alongside veggies, cauliflower rice, spaghetti squash or anything else your heart desires.
