Anyone ever eaten a Chicken Bake from Costco? We all know there is nothing healthy in there. But man are they tasty.
I found this recipe over at Our Paleo Life. They’ve been one of my fave go to Paleo sites for years. Apparently they went Keto a bit back but I didn’t notice until we went Keto. I stumbled across this recipe for Cheesy Chicken Broccoli, but I didn’t like how fat heavy, low protein it was so I played with it and the end product – tasted like a Chicken Bake from Costco. Without further ado, I give you…..
The Keto Style Chicken Bake
Turn on your broiler and cook up some chicken thighs or pull apart a rotisserie chicken if you have one. You want 3 cups of cooked chicken, 1/2 inch chop.
Chop and cook 4 strips of bacon in a skillet.
While the meat is cooking:
Place 4 ounces of cream cheese, 2.5 oz cheddar cheese, and 1/2 c Paleo Chipotle Lime Mayo in a large bowl. You’ll need mixing room.
Quick before the bacon finishes, chop one small red onion, aim for 1 c chopped when done to match the macros I’ll give you at the bottom.
Turn over the thighs, probably. Fish out the bacon to drain on a paper towel.
Add the red onions and 1 tbsp minced garlic to the bacon grease pan. Stir occasionally, til soft and fragrant.
Add the onions, garlic, and bacon to your cheese/mayo bowl. Give it a minute for the warm stuff to work on your cream cheese, then start mixing. Add the chicken. Finally add 2.5 c riced broccoli (or Caulif).
When nicely combined evenly spread it into an 8×8 pan. No need to grease it.
Melt 2 tbsp butter and add that to 2 oz of pork rinds blended into dust. Makes a nice crumb topping. Spread evenly over the top.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Heaven
