Enjoy all the flavors of traditional carbonara without the carb-induced food coma that usually comes with the dish! This easy Keto Chicken Carbonara is a wonderful twist on the original. With crispy bacon, chicken, and spinach swimming in a parmesan cream sauce, you have a rich and luscious meal that is sure to please.


– 1 tablespoon avocado oil – 8 ounces bacon diced – 1 ½ pounds cubed chicken – ⅓ cup diced onion – 5 ounces chopped baby spinach – 2 cups heavy cream – 3 large eggs beaten – 1 cup grated parmesan divided – 1 teaspoon dried oregano – ¼ teaspoon salt – ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon, chicken, and onion. Cook until the bacon is crisp and the chicken is cooked through about 7 to 8 minutes. Add the baby spinach and cook until wilted. Remove from the pan.


Add the heavy cream to the skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until it is simmering.


In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, half of the cheese, the oregano, salt, and pepper.


Remove ⅓ cup of the heavy cream from the skillet and gradually whisk it with the egg mixture to temper.


Return the meat and vegetable mixture to the skillet and reduce the heat to low.


Stir the egg mixture into the meat and vegetable mixture until creamy. Top with the remaining parmesan cheese.
