Keto Chicken Alfredo – This low carb chicken alfredo is the ultimate comfort food made in one pan or skillet under 10 minutes and juicy chicken is smothered into the creamy alfredo sauce, full of Italian flavors ready to serve on the dinner table.
Easy Keto Chicken Alfredo – Variations
- Make it a more filling and heavy meal by adding cauliflower and broccoli when cooking the sauce. Lightly boil the broccoli in the hot boiling water for 30 seconds, and add them to the sauce.
- I am using boneless skinless chicken breasts but you can use chicken thighs to add more fat content, chopped turkey also works great.
- You can add spinach with the sauce if you don’t like mushrooms.
- Add onions if you like, saute them with the garlic when making the sauce, you will surely love the flavor and texture.
- For the oil, you can pretty much use any keto-approved fat like avocado oil, olive oil, butter, ghee, beef tallow, coconut oil, bacon fat, etc.
- I am using fresh parsley, you can use dried parsley as well if fresh is not available or use fresh celery leaves as an alternative.
What To Serve With This Low Carb Chicken Alfredo?
I love to eat this all alone without any side dish because it has mushrooms and is packed with protein, which is very filling. But if you want, serve this keto friendly chicken alfredo along with side zucchini noodles, zoodles, shirataki noodles, spaghetti squash, mashed cauliflower, or roasted green beans.
