If you’re wanting to surprise your Valentine this year with an ‘in-home’ restaurant quality dish, look no further. This Keto Tuscan Chicken over zoodles is a pretty easy meal to create. It’s colorful, elegant and tastes amazing! With the added spinach and sun-dried tomatoes, you’re sure to impress your dinner guest(s). Plus, it’s DAIRY FREE!
As we all know, I loooooove to cook. Like, legit… it’s my favorite thing. I find myself thinking about what Ill cook next all the time. Recipes flood my dreams. I feed people far too often, and they are not always my immediate family. With all of that said, I also LOVE to go out to eat. It gives me a chance to try new things, be adventurous and NOT have to clean up after. Total bonus, am I right!?
I always thought Valentine’s day was the perfect reason to go out to eat, order something fancy and indulge. But then along came my daughter…going out with a little isn’t as “fancy” as it used to be. So now I get creative and I bring the fancy to my kitchen table instead.
Enter this DELICIOUS Keto Tuscan Chicken!
You guys, it is so rich and elegant and the best part, it is DAIRY FREE! With keto, I feel like I eat a LOT of cheese and decided that once a week we are going to eat a dairy free dinner. I do a lot of curry for this reason but I am so glad I ventured out to try this recipe! Feeling bloated or two weighted down after eating isn’t fun, so choosing to be dairy-free once a week helps. The sauce is packed with flavor but is thinner than a traditional cream sauce. Putting it over zoodles is a great pairing too. Since there is spinach in the dish you get your double dose of veggies too. Also, I am not a huge fan of sun-dried tomatoes, but I really liked them in this meal. They added a tang that really brought it all together.
P.S. Here is some exciting news for wine lovers too! You can pair this delightful meal with a wine that is SUGAR FREE and leaves no hang-over, icky feelings or head ache the next day. It’s been called the “keto wine“ and it tastes GREAT, trust me, I’ve had my fair share of bottles now and I’ve done my research with the company…they know what’s up. My husband and I are pretty big wine-o’s and Dry Farm Wines has made it possible for us to still have a nice glass with our dinner. PLUS, they offered my followers a smokin deal! You can get an extra bottle for a penny with your first order!!
I will do a full blog post about this AMAZING wine another time, but I didn’t want you to miss out on it sooner, rather than later 🙂 www.dryfarmwines.com/cheers
Keto Tuscan Chicken
If you're looking for an 'in-home' restaurant quality dish, look no further. This Keto Tuscan Chicken with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes, over zoodles, is a pretty easy meal to create. It's colorful, elegant and tastes amazing! Plus, it's DAIRY FREE!
- 1 Lg Chicken breast - cut in half, length wise
- 2 Tbsp Oil from sun-dried tomato jar
- 1 Can Coconut milk
- 1/2 Cup Chicken stock
- 1 Tbsp Nutritional yeast
- 1 Tsp Garlic powder
- 1 Tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 to 2 Cups Spinach
- 1/2 Cup Sun-dried tomatoes (whole or diced)
- 2 Lg Zucchini - cut into zoodles
Measure out 2 Tbsp of the sun-dried tomato oil. Add it to a skillet (I prefer cast iron) and heat over medium heat.
Place the chicken in the skillet and cook 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside
Add the coconut milk, chicken broth, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and nutritional yeast to the skillet and stir. The sauce will thicken slightly as it simmers.
Add the spinach and the sun-dried tomatoes and let the spinach wilt.
Place the chicken back in the sauce and let simmer until the chicken is fully cooked through.
Blanch your spiraled zoodles in boiling water for a few minutes. You may put them in an ice bath to stop the cooking if you like them more al dente.
Serve the chicken over your pre-cooked zoodles with a few spoonfuls of the sauce.
