Keto Grilled Chicken in a Creamy Pesto Sauce

Keto meal for one

When I’m eating alone, I don’t want to make an elaborate meal. I had a bunch of chicken breasts lying in my freezer so I decided to make a nice pan-grilled chicken and a delicious creamy pesto sauce to go with it. This recipe is quick, easy and perfect to make when you are dining solo or when you want to rustle up a quick weekday meal. It takes less than 15 minutes to make and there is almost no prep as well. Enjoy this easy meal for one!

That mean green pesto machine

My Keto pesto is a go to ingredient in the kitchen. It’s the perfect tablespoon, packed with flavour. It can be used in so many different ways to create everything from a marinade to a sauce and what’s great is that it’s high fat so it fits in perfectly with our Keto requirements. So go ahead and let me know how you use pesto in your recipes, I’d love to know.
