Chicken Wings in Chilli Marinade (Low carb)

This is a spicy, fresh marinade that you can make yourself at home with only a tiny amount of effort. Despite the fact that there are 5 chillies in the marinade, the end-result is not as fiery-hot as you might think. I labelled this low carb (and not strict keto) because I include store-bought tomato ketchup (the reduced-sugar kind) in the recipe.  Either way, you will love this over the BBQ this summer! THIS RECIPE IS ACCOMPANIED WITH A VIDEO. (Scroll down to see it, and be sure to watch the blooper reel Funnyman slips in at the end!)

Ginger Chicken with Coconut Spinach (Keto)

Jazz up your chicken dinners with some dynamite flavours and a little extra effort! I cooked ginger-seasoned chicken pieces with a creamy coconut spinach and threw in tomatoes for additional sweet bites in every mouthful. The macros are calculated that this recipe will serve 6 (one large thigh per person), and it would be lovely over Creamy Cauliflower Mash.

Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dip (Keto)

Chicken wings and blue cheese dip: YUM! You can serve this up as an appetiser at your next BBQ, or simply enjoy it for dinner like Funnyman and I did. Adjust the amount of cayenne pepper for the wings to suit your liking, but be mindful that you don’t want any flavours to compete with the luxuriously stinky dip!

Cream-baked Chicken with Tomatoes and Herbs (Keto)

This is an indulgent dish that is made using diced up boneless, skinless chicken thighs (which are far more succulent than chicken breasts). The browned pieces are simply poached in a thick seasoned cream and can be used as a sauce over courgetti or konjac (shirataki) noodles. Alternatively, you could serve it over Creamy Cauliflower Mash or Cauliflower Rice. Its the heavenly flavour of baked cream that really makes this dish sing, along with the sweet bites of tomato. The fresh basil scattered over before serving finishes it beautifully.

Smoked Paprika Chicken & Chorizo Bake (Low-carb)

Keto Chicken and Chorizo Bake

This is why you must try my Cauliflower Rice recipe! I added the cooked cauli-rice to the chicken roasting dish halfway through and it absorbs all that glorious smoked paprika flavour. This is chicken & chorizo bake is a great family dinner that can be enjoyed with a fresh side salad. This chicken and chorizo bake uses the Fats of Life Cauliflower Rice recipe, which you will notice only serves 4. You should therefore make 1 and 1/2 times that cauli-rice recipe to yield enough for 6 people (and this is also how the macros were calculated.)

Keto Creamy Pesto-stuffed Chicken Breasts

Keto Creamy Pesto-stuffed Chicken Breasts

I have made this dish so many times and it just keeps getting better. It’s not easy doing something remarkable with chicken breasts: they can be somewhat underwhelming and can easily dry out. These are juicy, moist and bursting with flavour. I love smoked paprika and rubbed the breasts with it before frying on both sides, then stuffing and finishing in the oven. The stuffing was simply two ingredients that when combined are simply out of this world (one being my Homemade Basil Pesto which you really must try). Enjoy this simple, mid-week meal of pesto-stuffed chicken breasts – it may become your new breast friend (… see what I did there?)
