We’ve rounded up some different keto-friendly chicken breast ideas that are a little “outside the box.” It’s time for some new dinner plans!

WHO DOESN’T LOVE CHICKEN?

Whether you’re a low-carb, keto, or low-calorie dieter, chances are chicken breast is in regular rotation on your menu. It’s a great protein—versatile, customizable, and delicious. Chicken breasts are a perfect serving size, too, and you can find them nearly everywhere.

 

Chicken breasts have zero net carbs, so they won't mess up your keto diet. A chicken breast contains about 54 grams of protein(Opens an external site in a new window), a few grams of fat, and between 90-110 calories. In other words, chicken breast is lean, low-cal, high protein, and low carb. It’s pretty much a perfect diet food.

 

But after day-in and day-out eating chicken, chances are, you feel a bit fatigued by the bird. It's an excellent platform for many meals, but it's not as comforting as some of your old favorites like rice or PASTA, right? After a long, stressful work week, who doesn’t want to tuck into a big bowl of something delicious? A grilled chicken breast isn’t quite going to cut it.

 

We’ve got you covered! With It’s Skinny, you can enjoy chicken breast that’s never boring or typical. Try a riff on one of these delicious recipes made with It’s Skinny Pasta or It’s Skinny Rice and you’ll feel satisfied!

HOLD UP: PASTA ON KETO?!

That's right, folks! You can enjoy these yummy chicken breast PASTA recipes on keto! These pasta and rice recipes are ideal for making the most of a winner, winner chicken dinner while still getting your comfort food fix.

 

We know you want to know how! Well, meet It’s Skinny! It’s Skinny Pasta and It’s Skinny Rice are made with a humble little vegetable known as konjac. This root may be a bit funny looking and mysterious, but it also makes the perfect swap for pasta.

 

Konjac root has been popular in Asia as food and medicine for many years, but it’s only recently taken off in the United States. It contains a special fiber called glucomannan, which makes it ultra-filling and helps keep your blood sugar steady.

 

It's Skinny Pasta and It's Skinny Rice contain ZERO net carbs and only 9 calories per pack. They are easy to work with and the ideal substitute for starchy carbohydrates that you'd typically include in your favorite dinner recipes. Unlink many of the typical swaps—cauliflower rice, zoodles—It's Skinny doesn't overpower the dish or taste weird. The texture is ideal, and it's super easy to work with.

 

To use It’s Skinny in your favorite keto chicken breast recipes, simply tear open the package, drain, and add it to the pan and the end of the cooking process. It only needs a minute or two to heat through, and it’s ready to enjoy!
