Keto Dinners with Chicken

As you’ll quickly find out, chicken can easily become a staple for you in the ketogenic diet. It’s relatively cheap and there are just so many different meals that you can do with it.

Don’t hesitate to buy a lot of chicken breasts, freeze them, and then take them out in portions when you need them.

If you’re a fan of Chinese food then you know exactly what sesame chicken is. However, the version you’re probably used to has almost infinitely more carbs in it.

Think about how you would typically have this meal. You have the breaded sesame chicken along with either a massive portion of noodles or rice and maybe a small side of vegetables.

You won’t be able to have this meal with any rice or noodles but if you’d like to add some sort of vegetable to it, feel free to do that.
