The Keto Diet is a low-carb, moderate-protein and high-fat diet plan. It is designed to give you more energy and to help you lose weight, as well as to help you become healthier overall. Chicken is a food that is -free, high in protein and rich in minerals, like phosphorus and selenium and also rich in vitamins, like Vitamins A, B, E and K. Personally, I eat a lot of chicken on the keto diet and there are so many options for a hearty, low-carb and deliciously satisfying meal. Here are some unique recipes to mix up your keto dinner menu.
