I can’t stop making this Keto Chicken Alfredo and I think you are going to love it just as much as I do. Sometimes I eat it all weekend for lunch and dinner. Rich and creamy Alfredo sauce tossed with cajun seasoned chicken breast, and sautéed mushrooms are nothing short of a dream. This is a low carb meal that may make you feel like you are cheating.
Fall in Love with Keto Chicken Alfredo!
I’ll have to say that one of my favorite things about following a low carb and keto diet is all the guilt that I don’t feel when I enjoy all things cheesy and creamy.
I’ve never had much of a sweet tooth. Although I like sweets well enough, I rarely crave them and don’t struggle with portion control. I am the weird person who can have three bites of cake and feel satisfied.
But that doesn’t mean I am without my weaknesses when it comes to food.
I have plenty.
Anything salty and crunchy.
And anything creamy and cheesy.
(Let’s forget about my love of bread and pasta, for now, k?)
This Keto Chicken Alfredo checks off all the boxes when it comes to creamy and cheesy perfection! It is the kind of meal you will make over and over and never get tired of.
I am big on meal prep.
Not because I am exceptionally efficient or organized, but because I know myself to know that the wheels are falling off all of my good intentions if I get hungry and am not prepared. Having this Keto Alfredo Sauce on hand means I’m never far from a low carb meal, and this recipe is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it.
