Is Avocado Keto?

Yes the avocado fruit is allowed on the keto diet. It is full of healthy fats and lots of fiber. Avocados do have a higher total carb count. One medium avocado has 12 gram total carbs but most of it is fiber. A medium avocado has 10 grams of fiber so the net carbs of one avocado is 2 grams!

Avocado makes for the ideal keto food!

Is Buffalo Sauce Allowed on the Keto Diet?

Most buffalo sauce is keto friendly. I use this buffalo sauce by Noble Made, but Frank’s Buffalo Sauce if commonly found in most grocery stores and will work in this recipe too. Look for a buffalo sauce that doesn’t contain any added sugars or carbs. Make sure you check the nutrition label before purchasing a bottle of buffalo sauce.

Leftover Chicken Make this Meal Easy

To make this meal an easy keto recipe, you should use any leftover chicken you have or use shredded chicken from the deli. You could also get a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and shred it up to use in this buffalo chicken recipe.

If you are big on meal prepping or cooking up your proteins once and using it to make multiple recipes, then this buffalo chicken recipe is ideal. I like to make up a big batch of shredded chicken in the pressure cooker. I can use this cooked, shredded chicken in multiple meals throughout the week, like my crispy low carb chicken taquitos.

Using precooked chicken just eliminated an extra step of having to cook the chicken. If all you have is raw chicken, well then you can dice it up and cook it in the skillet before adding in the rest of the ingredients. This will just tack about 5-10 minutes onto your cooktime.

Easy Keto Meal Prep Recipe

Although I wouldn’t recommend prepping the avocados ahead of time by slicing them open, you can prep up the buffalo chicken sauce to use later.

If you cut into the avocados but don’t plan on using them right away, they can get brown and look unappealing if you let them sit for longer than an hour. Squeezing some lemon or lime juice over the flesh of the avocado can keep it from turning brown but it doesn’t always work.

I would save this step for right before you want to make the keto buffalo chicken avocados.

The buffalo chicken mixture can be made ahead of time, frozen or stored in the refrigerator.
