Chicken Lettuce Cups with Creamy Coriander Sauce
Chicken lettuce cups can be easily made with a few large leafs of an iceberg lettuce. They make great ingredient baskets for which you can fill plenty of ketogenic friendly ingredients into without expecting the case to crumble (Like most other healthy wraps).
This weeks recipes revolve around chicken, bacon, avocado and tomatoes. This recipe didn’t need to include any bacon, but I found that creamy sauces fill the void between a boring keto salad and a meal that you actually look forward to at lunch time.
The chicken is baked in the oven, so that the moisture is contained without having to fry or dry the exterior. Baking chicken breast is probably the most simple way to cook chicken, mess free.
The creamy coriander sauce contains a few extra ingredients, but just plain old mayonnaise can easily keep things fresh. Make sure the mayonnaise doesn’t contain any hidden nasties like sugar or sugar imposters.
Low Carb Recipes that you can easily make
FatForWeightLoss is going through some changes, and I’m really liking it! My goal is to make these ketogenic recipes easier for you so that weight loss becomes effortless.
This week’s recipes will be staring bacon and chicken, avocado, lettuce, herbs and tomatoes (not necessary, but make for some wicked colour combinations).
Todays recipe is chicken and bacon kebabs!
I’m eating these for lunch during this week, and will combine the recipes together in a blog post so that you can do the same!
Less Ingredients, less waste!
Nobody likes recipes that requires hundreds of different ingredients just to make it taste like “The Real Thing”.
On top of that, no one likes it when they have to buy all of those different ingredients, only to throw them away a week later because none of the other recipes required any of the same ingredients.
I’ve done the fancy cheesecakes, and decadent desserts, and as much fun as they are to make and share with your friends, I’m not sure anyone would have actually made them…
Finding simple ideas for ingredients that you already have is what I strive to turn my website FatForWeightLoss into. A helpful resource to aid in simple ketogenic nutrition without all the complications and associated costs.
