A certified nutritionist and self-taught chef with a love for entertaining and experimenting with food, Lolita Carrico created Ketology after struggling for years with her own hormonal changes and weight gain. After having two children, she found that managing her weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. After researching the ketogenic diet thoroughly and understanding the science and nutritional aspects, she began her keto journey in 2018. Within three months, she shed 25 pounds and her mood improved, focus sharpened and her energy was through the roof. Four years later, she has maintained a 65-pound weight loss and has learned to intuitively follow a balanced keto lifestyle without sacrificing a thing!

While many keto dieters and influencers favor chicken thighs in their dishes for the higher fat content and I do use them often, I actually prefer cooking my keto dishes with chicken breast, mainly because I can control the kinds of fat I add to ensure the quality rather than relying on chicken fat, which isn’t really great nutritionally and doesn’t really taste great. So we always stock up on organic chicken breasts from Costco and I have them for lunch or dinner at least a couple of times a week — here are my top favorite keto chicken breast recipes:

Stuffed Chicken Breast
This has been one of my go-to meals since I started keto – and my family loves them too so it's a great dinner option with mashed cauliflower on the side or some rice or pasta on the side for the non-keto ones!

Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu
Recently, I got a little nostalgic and started recreating some of my favorite childhood recipes so they are keto-approved – and this keto chicken cordon bleu was on my short list to make. It was a hit – thanks to one of my favorite breading alternatives,Pork Panko, which creates a crispy breaded crust that worked perfectly in this baked keto chicken recipe and also is great for fried "breaded" recipes as well.

Keto BBQ Grilled Chicken
Tangy sweet barbecued chicken is one of our summer staples – it's a crowd pleaser, super easy to cook and a nice change from burgers. Barbecued meat is perfect on a keto lifestyle – grilling brings out amazing flavors and natural juices – the only thing to beware of is the sauce!
