RECIPE REVIEW

This recipe was originally posted on Creme Da La Crumb.

While most of my weekly meal prepping consists of simple, yet flavorful-packed food, I am always seeking for recipes that "dress to impress". This is one of my all time favorite keto-friendly main dishes from Creme Da Le Crumb. It is simply delicious, full of flavor, and always brings out the "ooooo"s and "ahhhh"s from my dinner guests.

Ingredients:

4-6 boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts

⅔ cup chopped roasted red peppers (see note)

2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided

4 tablespoons oil

1 tablespoon minced garlic

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

1 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese (optional)

Thinly sliced fresh basil (optional)

INSTRUCTIONs:

Combine roasted red peppers, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender, pulse till smooth.

Grease a large skillet. Season chicken with remaining 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Cook chicken in your greased skillet over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side until cooked through and lightly browned on the outside. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Transfer red pepper mixture to the pan and stir over medium heat 2-3 minutes until hot throughout. Add heavy cream and stir until mixture is thick and creamy. Add chicken and toss in the sauce to coat. Garnish with crumbled feta cheese and fresh basil and serve.

Recipe Notes:

You can buy jarred roasted red peppers in most grocery stores near the olives.

Keto Connect: Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip

RECIPE REVIEW

This recipe was originally posted on Keto Connect.

Okay guys, this summer I had TONS of delicious potlucks at my work. Often times, it was hard to find anything keto-friendly I could eat. So, I decided to make it easier on myself and bring a keto item to the party!

After a few hours of searching I found this dip! Keto Connect is one of my favorite resources to get recipes! Matt and Megha are seriously amazing! If you are a member of the keto community, these two are no strangers to you.

I modified the recipe a little by using a mixture of Franks Buffalo Sauce and Frank’s Original sauce. I also used a rotisserie chicken. It was glorious.

I cannot tell you how amazing this dip is! It takes the cream cheese a second to melt, but once combined it’s the most delicious appetizer I’ve ever had.

I suggest serving it with celery sticks. The crunchy and warm combination made the perfect combo.

Whoever said eating keto was restrictive is lying! This appetizer was a HUGE HIT at my company party and is now requested any time we have a potluck!

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups shredded chicken (cooked)

¾ cup blue cheese dressing

¾ cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce

12 ounces cream cheese (softened)

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

¼ cup jalapenos (optional, for topping)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Add cream cheese and hot sauce to a medium heat saucepan.

Once fully combined stir in the blue cheese dressing and chicken.

Once fully incorporated, slowly mix in 3/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese.

Once fully incorporated transfer mixture to an 8x8 baking dish. Layer the rest of the mozzarella cheese on top.

Place in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.

Serve warm and enjoy!
