Keto Chicken Breast Recipes: My Favorites


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 kids 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 five favorite keto chicken breast recipes:

1 keto stuffed chicken breast

Creamy Spinach 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! Get the Recipe

2 keto chicken parmesan

Keto Chicken Parmesan

Chicken parmesan is a great way to stretch the abilities of cooking on keto — at first thought, keto chicken parmesan seems impossible with the breaded chicken and usually served atop spaghetti. However thanks to some effective keto hacks, you can enjoy a savory keto chicken parmesan with minimal effort! Get the Recipe

3 Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu

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.

4 Keto BBQ Grilled Chicken

Keto BBQ Grilled Chicken Breasts

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! Get the Recipe

Our Keto-friendly version of a popular CPK dish: Creamy Tequila Lime Chicken Fettuccine aka Keto Tequila Lime Chicken with Zucchini Noodles because we subbed zucchini noodles for the pasta and voilá! Delicious, creamy and filling – pair it with a low carb margarita! Get the Recipe
