Chicken : Low Carb : Keto : Three Delicious Recipe Choices

Chicken's many plus points - its versatility, as well as the ease and speed with which it can be cooked - make it one of the most popular meats around. It has a high level of good quality protein, as well as B vitamins, iron, copper and selenium.
The pale flesh has a close texture and a mild flavour that pairs up well with many different ingredients. Never eat raw chicken, and always thoroughly wash your hands, utensils and cutting board as soon as you've cut or handled raw chicken.
Here are three popular low carb/keto chicken dishes you may wish to try:-

Chicken and mushrooms with tomato cream sauce

4g net carbs per serving
4 chicken breasts (without skin)
sea salt and ground black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp salted butter
3 garlic cloves, minced

I remember when chicken was a rare and expensive treat. For my meat eating partner's sake I am grateful that has changed.

Hello Jan! I am so thankful you visited my blog that it led me to yours! I love all these delicious chicken dishes that you shared. I remember I once tried keto diet and it made me shed 40 pounds and I never felt so good about my body but I got back to eating rice and I gained it all back. I am in the process of slowly going back not just for my figure but my overall health and your blog will be a great companion to this journey :)

All three chicken recipes sound delicious! I am waiting for a new refrigerator to be delivered today--our old one died a few weeks ago and we have been using a small one in the basement until the new one arrives. I can't wait to go shopping again and make some new recipes!
