Keto Chicken Mayonnaise

One of the quickest throw together meals for leftover chicken or a handy tin of shredded tuna (which I’m not a big fan of) is shredding a chicken breast or two, adding mayonnaise, a few other diced ingredients and seasoning. I like my Chicken Mayo’ to be chunky, have some tang and a little bit of crunch. If you want some sweetness for those non-keto members of your household, sliced grapes or small dices of firm yellow peaches or apricots are delicious too. A splash of curry powder for a spicier version is also good!

  • 2 chicken breasts,shredded or diced
  • 1 large pickled cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 cup diced spicy peppers or red bell peppers
  • 6 radish diced
  • 1 small onion or 2 shallots
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup keto mayonnaise
  • Ground salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp onion or garlic powder
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp curry powder
1. Dice or shred the chicken
2. Add the chopped veggies
3. Stir in the mayo and seasonings
4. Refrigerate until ready to use
5. Serve on keto bread or piled on top of a salad

Yes, this is Keto Bread! We’re lucky enough to have a local bakery that makes it. It makes a decent slice of toast too!

Here are a few of the beautiful tomatoes we’ve been enjoying this summer. My sweetie’s veggie garden was incredible this year! Only the butternut is not from his garden.

I served it with a splash of reduced balsamic vinegar infused with fresh mint. Serve with boiled eggs and kielbasa sausage slices.

Radicchio, Bacon and Strawberry Salad

I wish radicchio lettuce was not so pricey. I think it’s a beautiful, delicious veg and so vibrant. When I was at the check out, the person ringing up even double checked the price. So I turned it into Continue reading
