Keto Creamy Bacon Chicken Over {Fake} Pasta

I wont even lie.

I love me a good pasta dish.

I may have been known to stand at the stove "trying" a pasta dish.....a few times. Then a few times more....

I have a touch of Italian blood....so it stands to reason that this girl loves her pasta.

But pasta doesn't love me. Really, it doesn't love anyone - if we're honest. Pasta has 0 nutritional value and does bad, bad things to our blood glucose levels.

The good news is - there is an alternative that is healthy and delicious!

And I am excited to share with you one of my favorite fake pasta dihes!





Keto Creamy Bacon Chicken Over {Fake} Pasta

Most of my recipes are for single servings.

There is a reason for that - I'm the only Keto person in my household. So, this also means that a lot of my recipes are modifications for meals that I make for my family.

3-4 slices of bacon chopped
1 Small onion chopped
2 deboned chicken thighs cubed and seasoned to taste
1 TB lard
1 c. Heavy Whipping Cream

In a skilled fry up the bacon pieces and remove from heat. Remove bacon and set the grease aside.

In a separate skillet, melt lard and saute the onion until lightly golden. Dump in cubed chicken thighs and brown. Add a bit of water after the cubes have browned a bit, and cover and let simmer down to help the chicken become more tender.

Once the water is cooked down to a sauce, add cream and bring a very light simmer (if the cream boils, it will curdle, so don't let it boil).

Top with the bacon.

Fake Pasta:

1 medium-sized zucchini spiralized.

In the same skillet you used to brown the bacon, heat the grease back up and lightly saute 3-4 cloves of garlic. Stir until garlic is transparent. Dump in the spiralized zucchini and quickly stir until the zucchini is coated in the garlic and grease.

Allow the zucchini to cook until slightly tender - al dente.

Remove from heat, drain off the water and turn on to plate.

Top the {fake} pasta with the Creamy Bacon Chicken, liberally grate Parmesean over the top and serve with a heaping side salad!


I use this spiralizer!
