Ingredients

4 servingservings
USMetric
  • 1 lb 450 g boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 oz. 30 g butter
  • ½ lb 225 g bacon
  • 4 oz. 110 g cherry tomatoes
  • 10 oz. 275 g Romaine lettuce
  • salt and pepper
Garlic mayonnaise
  • ¾ cup 175 ml mayonnaise
  • ½ tablespoon ½ tablespoon garlic powder

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix mayonnaise and garlic powder in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Fry the bacon slices in butter until crispy. Remove and keep warm. Save the grease in the pan.
  3. Shred the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Fry in the same skillet as the bacon until golden brown and thoroughly cooked.
  4. Rinse and shred the lettuce; be sure to use a clean cutting board and knife (different from the one used when handling the raw chicken). Place the lettuce on a plate and top with chicken, bacon, tomatoes, and a hearty dollop of garlic mayonnaise.

Tip!

For a shortcut, sub in shredded rotisserie chicken. Then the bacon fat can be used to make a yummy bacon vinaigrette for the salad. (Just add a little vinegar and salt and pepper!)

    @Sylvia I am not sure what Mcchicken mayo is either -- unless Keto girl meant McChicken Sauce. But know that even plain old Helmann's mayo has 0 carbs (which automatically means no sugar).

    delicious! we used Keg chicken spice on one side of the chicken thighs, s&p on the other. fried the thighs whole, then sliced them when cooked. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the garlic mayo

    Does Diet Doctor use total or net carbs when calculating their nutrition?
