How do you Make a Keto Chicken Quesadilla?

To make this Tasty Cheese Shelled Keto Chicken Quesadilla:

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400 F. Then, cover a pizza pan with Parchment Paper (NOT wax paper). Mix the Cheeses together, then evenly spread them over the parchment paper (in a circle shape).

Step 3: Place the chicken over half of the cheese shell. Add the sliced peppers, diced tomato and the chopped green onion. Fold the Cheese shell in half over the chicken and veggies. Press it firmly.

What else can I add to this Keto Quesadilla?

– I used plain chicken but you could spice yours up with a little taco spice or buffalo sauce.

– Try switching out the chicken for shredded pork, shredded or ground beef or grilled shrimp.

– You can also use a wide range of vegetables, like avocado, grilled zucchini, onion or mushrooms.

WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?

The ketogenic diet (often calledketo) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins.It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When in ketosis, your body switches to burning fatfor its primary fuel source.

On Keto, you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from Fat, 15 to 25 percent from Protein, and 10 percent from Carbohydrates. You should avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.

Keto Quesadilla Recipe Notes:

  • To reheat, preheat oven to 400 F. Bake for 6-8 minutes (if cold, a little less if room temp).
  • I let cheese shell cool for a minute then flipped it over before putting the filling onto it. This step isn’t necessary but I found that it made the quesadilla look a little prettier.
  • Use Parchment Paper (NOT waxed paper)
  • This recipe makes 1 Keto Chicken Quesadilla | 1 Serving = 1/2 of a Quesadilla
