Low Carb Tuscan Chicken Recipe

Creamy keto tuscan chicken is the perfect weeknight dinner recipe since it’s easy to make, comes together quickly and is made using one pan. Classic Italian flavors of sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and parmesan cheese are combined with spinach and chicken to make up this creamy low carb dish. It’s delicious served just as it is made, but you should try it over cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles for a compelte meal even your kids will love!

Are Sun Dried Tomatoes Keto?

Sun-dried tomatoes contain carbs. One strip of sun dried tomato has about 0.5 grams net carbs in it. These carbs can add up quickly so we don’t add too much to this one pot wonder. But really, you don’t need too many anyway to get that rich, intense tomato flavor in the dish. It’s the best way to get ultimate tomato tangy flavor without sacrificing carb.

Is Lemon Pepper Necessary?

If you can’t locate the lemon-pepper seasoning or don’t have any on hand, just omit it. I would use black pepper in it’s place or dust with addtional garlic powder. The lemon pepper adds acidity to balance out the cream and saltiness of the recipe.

  1. I have a question, if the recipe calls for 2 chicken breast and the recipe nutrients says 4 servings for the 6 net carbs, does that mean a serving for that carb amount is a half a breast? Low Carb Tuscan Chicken Recipe

  2. Just made this the other night and nit even two bites in, both my husband and teenage son told me to never lose this recipe and have already asked me to make it again next week.

    Thank you so much for not only a fantastic recipe, but one that comes together very quickly. I cooked the chicken in my InstantPot while starting on remaining ingredients.

  3. I am new to keto and new to cooking with a recipe, I love this so much! It’s super easy to make. I made it 2 days in a row! Love it!!!
