Keto Chicken Pasta

KETO CHICKEN PASTA

This Keto diet (thanks Keto Kev) is making me crave my favorite foods more than usual. One can only eat so much salami and cheese. This Sunday I was in the mood for pasta and spotted organic ground chicken breast at Whole Foods as I was rushing through so grabbed it not really knowing what I was going to do with it. I originally was thinking meatballs but when I opened the package the chicken was a bit smoother in consistency and I was concerned it wouldn’t hold up without the bread crumbs so I tried this and it worked. Serves 2.  

INGREDIENTS

1 package organic ground chicken breast (I like Bell and Evans)
1 small shallot, chopped fine
½ white onion, chopped fine
1 clove garlic, chopped fine
1 Tbsp garlic olive oil
1 tsp JF Spicy Salt
½ tsp cracked black pepper
¼ tsp dried red pepper 
½ tsp dried oregano
1 cup JF Simple Tomato Sauce
Mozzarella cheese, shredded (sub plant-based cheese)
Parmesan cheese, shredded (sub plant-based cheese)
Italian parsley, chopped

PROCESS

In a nonstick pan heat the olive oil over medium and add the shallot, garlic and onion. Sauté until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add chicken breast, salt, pepper, oregano and chili pepper and cook through until crumbly. Break down the meat as it cooks. 


Once cooked, transfer to a baking dish, sprinkle with sauce and cheese and broil until bubbly. Sprinkle with extra parmesan/plant-based cheese and fresh parsley before serving Pairs perfectly with my JF Roasted Zucchini.
