Chicken & Onions w/ Cheddar Alfredo – Keto

Please share:

I adore easy, delicious dinners. But really, who doesn’t. This one is so simple and not boring that we’ve had it 4 times in the past week alone. It comes together in no time and also makes use of leftover chicken if you have some on hand, which removes an entire step.

Keto Chicken & Onions with Cheddar Alfredo

The only time consuming part is making the sauteed onions, and that’s just because cooking onions low and slow results in a much better flavor and texture. I like to cook a bunch of onions and chicken in advance and just toss them in the pan to reheat while I make the sauce.

And speaking of the sauce, CHEDDAR Alfredo?! I know, it’s like regular Alfredo but somehow better. Because cheddar makes everything better. So Cheesy.
