2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut horizontally
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cup spinach, rinsed (I used a whole bag of spinach)
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
4 oz Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 bottle Italian Dressing
Add chicken and Italian dressing in a Ziplok bag. Seal the bag and massage so the chicken is covered in the marinade, set aside for 10-15 minutes while you prep the remaining ingredients. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400ºF (200°C).
Quickly wilt the spinach in a skillet with 1-2 tablespoon olive oil, set aside.
Arrange chicken breasts drained from the marinade in a baking dish.
Cut the brick of softened cream cheese in 4 equal parts and spread each part over each chicken piece
Lay spinach on top of the cream cheese.
Sprinkle mozzarella over the top.
Bake for 20-30 minutes. Chicken is done when cooked through to an internal temperature of 165˚F (75°C). Serve warm with a side of cauliflower rice, or baked veggies. Enjoy!
When you are following a keto lifestyle at times, your cravings for sweets are so strong, you cave. I figured out a Keto Ice Cream that is great tasting and spot on for watching carbs. It’s next to nothing carbs and high fat. A perfect combo for ketogenic diets.
Wasn’t sure what to call this dessert but since it’s Keto acceptable we named it Keto Cheesecake. Our good friend, Jo Ann Bashford, shared it with us and we are hooked! We’ve made this dozens of times. It’s quick to make and when you add berries and Reddi Wip … well … it’s simply delicious!
It’s certainly helps our sweet tooth after dinner!
In a medium to large bowl, heat the cream cheese in the microwave for 1 minute.
Add Splenda and whip with electric beaters.
In a 2nd bowl, use electric beaters and whip the heavy cream.
Pour the whipped heavy cream into the cream cheese/Splenda bowl and mix with electric beaters until well blended.
Pour into individual dishes (*) or a small pan and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight.
Right before serving, add berries and Reddi Wip.
* Makes enough to fill 4 individual ramekins
Cooking Keto Style is a craft in itself. I’m taking recipes and dishes I love and adapting them to low carbs/high fat. Some work! Some don’t. But my husband and I are living a keto lifestyle – this way of eating has improved our health, mood, strength, focus and much more.
