  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 slices bacon (thick cut recommended)
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 22oz or ~616g)
  • 2 ounces (~56g) kale, chopped
  • 8 ounces (~227g) raw broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 1 1/2 cups keto-friendly alfredo sauce
  • 1 1/2 ounces (~42g) shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 ounce (~14g) shredded parmesan
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped (optional)

Seasoning for Chicken

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon EACH salt, dried basil, dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon EACH onion powder, dried parsley, crushed red pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Combine all seasoning ingredients for chicken and set aside.
  2. In an oven safe skillet or pan over medium high heat, cook bacon until crispy (5-7 minutes). Set cooked bacon aside, but reserve ~1 tablespoon of the fat in the pan.
  3. Season chicken breast on both sides with recommended seasoning (or other spice blend of choice). Cook in reserved bacon fat, 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove cooked chicken from pan and set aside to cool.
  4. Lower heat to medium. Add minced garlic and chopped kale to pan, and saute for about 2 minutes, or until kale is just wilted. Remove pan from heat.
  5. Coarsely chop cooked bacon, and cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Add chicken, broccoli, and ~3/4 of the chopped bacon to the pan with the kale, and mix to combine.
  6. Pour alfredo sauce over the mixture and toss to coat. Top with shredded mozzarella, parmesan, and remaining bacon.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until broccoli is tender and cheese is melted. Optionally, broil for 2-3 minutes to lightly brown the cheese. Top with fresh basil before serving.
