I had a friend of mine called Bipro coming home for lunch, he’s the lead singer of a heavy metal band called Albatross, who have been on the show before. Long story short I cooked up a Pesto Grilled Chicken with a chunky cauliflower mash which had cheese and parsley and some sauteed mushrooms with sour cream and chives. He’s eaten my food before but watch the episode to see his reaction. You can watch my interview with his band Albatross here.
This meal was delicious and the best part is the recipe is super simple, prepared in minutes and is great meal prep option too. Enjoy!

I count my recipe for Keto basil pesto to be a Keto Essential. It’s so versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. This chicken itself is a great example. Also you can make a pesto zucchini pasta with it. The best part is you have a tasty high fat condiment. It can be great for salad dressings as well.
Counting the macros
I’m not putting macros for this recipe because it’s really not required. You can simply input the raw ingredients for all the items since it’s less than 4 ingredients. So just weight out the chicken, the pesto, the mushrooms and oil/butter and input that into MFP. If I find some time later once all the other recipes are up I’ll sit and calculate them. For now I’m just leaving them out.
