Creamy Butter Garlic Chicken

My husband recently started a Keto Diet, again! Last time he did this, the summer of 2018, I was in Italy awaiting the birth of my 6th. grandchild; so no one was home to support my husband in his endeavor nor was anyone around to prepare Keto friendly meals and snacks. That’s probably why he did do so well on the diet.

Mind you this diet is not for everyone, in fact you should consult your doctor before trying a Keto Diet. I know for sure this diet is not for me as I have an autoimmune condition that affects my liver, and this diet according to my research is not recommended for folks that have liver and kidney conditions as well as a host of other medical issues. Again consult your doctor before going on a Keto Diet or any other diet.

But this article isn’t about the Keto Diet at all. It’s about a delicious chicken dish that I make for the family. As I’ve already mentioned my husband is on a Keto Diet, but I’m not and neither are my daughter and 2 grandsons who live with us. So really my problem was to find something we all could eat so that I don’t have to play short order cook and make different meals of the family.

This Creamy Butter Garlic Chicken is just the thing. It’s fatty and low carb enough to work in a Keto Diet, it has 8 net carbs for each 1/2 cup of sauce, and it’s yummy enough to serve the rest of the family. Best of all it’s super easy to make!

I serve it with riced cauliflower for my husband and mashed potatoes for the rest of us. Steamed veggies make for a balanced meal we all love it!
