  6. Plate and top with fresh basil.

Tip!

This is a full meal all on its own, but it is also really good served with shirataki noodles, zucchini noodles, or even cauliflower rice.

    I absolutely loved this! I served it with buttered cabbage as a side. It is definitely one I will be making over and over again!

    In order to qualify for the green keto circle, the carbs, protein and fat must be within certain percentage ranges. This is very close, but slightly higher in percentage of calories from protein than the keto standards permit. If you eat keto, this recipe is likely a good option anyway as it is very low carb and has adequate protein. You can add more fat for satiety if you find you need it.

    There are at least three chicken recipes on DD with same ingredients, this one just has tomatoes. This was good, not great.

    I wonder how this would work with rotisserie chicken.

    I wonder how this would work with rotisserie chicken.

    Using a rotisserie chicken would be a quick and easy substitution.

    Excuse me... a little respect for my favourite herb, please? The tomatoes (with a dash of tomato sauce added to the cream sauce) combined with the fresh basil...that's a pretty different take on this dish. :-)
