Keto Marry Me Chicken
What in the world is a marry me chicken? Well to be it seems a bit like a Tuscan chicken that went viral. The dish is so impressive that it will have people asking you to marry them once they taste it. While that makes for a great story, is it really that good? Well you see I cooked a lemon pepper chicken for my wife, which was the dish that won her over. Did the marry me chicken top that? Probably not. But was it a great dish? Hell yeah!
So marriage or not, give this dish a try. It’s easy, delicious and will impress your guests one way or another. Check out the recipe now.
Let’s marry flavors!
A simple chicken breast is the perfect vehicle to carry the flavors in this dish. The real star is the sun dried tomato which adds a beautiful acidity to an otherwise rich dish. We’re all used to creamy sauces on Keto by now. I mean mix some cream and some cheese and you’re good to go. Amp that up with some garlic, chili flakes and dried oregano you got your basic Keto sauce. This sauce would go well over anything. I mean zucchini spaghetti, cauliflower rice or heck even use Keto bread to mop it up.
Where this really breaks the basics is the sun dried tomato and the fresh herbs. Tomato and basil are a match made in heaven and frankly we could call this heavenly chicken. I threw in a few cherry tomatoes for additional pops of freshness. Now I used sun dried tomatoes brined in oil but you can use the dried ones after hydrating them. Either of them will work.
