Keto Baked Chicken

Tasty Enough to Make YOU Cross the road!

I perfected our favorite Baked Chicken recipe as a gluten-free entree a few years ago, with the help of GF seasoned breadcrumbs I found at the store. But alas, these faux breadcrumbs were made with rice and had quite a few carbs in them. Sad day.

But I missed that chicken, darn it! So I played around with a few different ingredients, really trying to dial it in. The winners? Almond flour and pork rinds!

Yes, those plain pork rinds work wonders when finely crushed! I add a little grated parmesan cheese for flavor, and these are just as good as the original! A piece of this crunchy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside chicken, along with some garlic zoodles, and BAM! You have yourself one fantastic, low-carb, keto-friendly dinner! Delicious enough to serve to non-Keto people!

Low-Carb, Gluten-Free, Chicken Crust PIZZA!!

Don’t Be a Chicken – Try This Pizza Crust!

Wow, okay – this is one of THE best things I have found on my low-carb journey! I mean, pizza is a staple food…how is one expected to go without it? You can make a crust-less pizza, or a cauliflower pizza, or even a Fathead pizza (which is pretty good, too!) But of all the variations I have tried, chicken-crust pizza is my personal favorite. I haven’t tried the recipe using canned chicken (sounds like a lot of work and time to me), and after making this one, I don’t see the need to experiment further.


I have told many people about this, and decided it was past time to post it. This is really quick, really easy, and tastes delicious, and the crust comes in at ZERO CARBS! The only carbs come from your toppings.

My only caveat with this is the fact that raw ground chicken is super gross when you touch it. Luckily, this can be stirred, dumped onto and covered with parchment paper, then the whole thing slides onto your pan. You never have to make physical contact with the goop! Awesome!


A pound of ground chicken, a little grated parmesan, a little shredded mozzarella, some seasonings, parchment paper, and a pan are all you need – along with your favorite toppings, of course!

Mix up the crust and bake for 20 minutes, throw your toppings on and give it another 10 minutes, and Bam! You have a winning, keto-friendly, zero-carb crust!

Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin (Keto and Low Carb!)

Pork Wrapped in Pork = DELISH!

Mmmm, this is keto dinner heaven! What we have here friends is an honest-to-goodness, delicious, satisfying, filling, low carb, ketogenic dinner that is easy to make and beautiful to serve. A tender, juicy, bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin, served with sauteed garlic broccoli on the side. The bacon drenches the tenderloin in flavor and keeps it moist while roasting, and the broccoli is buttery and garlicky with just a bit of crunch.

The tenderloin is super-simple to put together. I gave it a quick rub of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Then I wrapped about 4 slices of bacon around it like a barber pole, trying to cover the top and sides as much as possible. I didn’t even use toothpicks – I just tucked the ends under as best as I could. (I tend to forget where and how many toothpicks I use, which is why I didn’t bother!)

Then I popped it into a 350 degree oven for about an hour, until the bacon was crisping up and the meat thermometer read 165 degrees internally. I took it out of the oven and covered with foil.

While the tenderloin was resting, I melted about 2 tablespoons of butter in a frying pan, added 3 cloves of crushed garlic and cooked it a bit until I could really smell the garlic. Then I tossed in about 3 cups of chopped broccoli and quickly sauteed it until it started to brown up on the edges.

This is a great meal (and great leftovers!) that isn’t super expensive. Since the tenderloin is so lean, you don’t have to trim anything off. No sauces or condiments are needed, which helps keep the carbs and calories down.

Final count (for the meal): Calories 336, Net carbs 4 grams, Fat 19 grams, Protein 29 grams.

Hmm, I think I’ll make this again this week! How about you?
