Marinated Grilled Chicken Breasts with Tomato Bruschetta

This content originally appeared here. Republished with permission.

Date night dinner on the patio! This grilled bruschetta chicken is absolutely out of this world and it’s perfect for a special meal, guests, or a fun and easy weeknight dinner.

Made with marinated chicken breasts, tomatoes, basil, garlic, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar, it’s bursting with bright, classic Italian flavors. Best of all, it’s Paleo and Whole30 compatible, and you can make the chicken on the grill, stovetop or air fryer!

I think the most beautiful thing about this bruschetta chicken recipe is the simplicity of the ingredients. They’re classic, fresh, and there’s nothing that brings magic to a dish quite like fresh basil and garlic!

In the summertime, I almost always have everything I need already – especially once my garden is at its peak – but they can all be found at pretty much any grocery store.

Equipment

  • Indoor or outdoor grill

Ingredients

Marinated Chicken

  • 1 lb. chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil preferably extra virgin
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Cherry Tomato Bruschetta

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1.5 tablespoons red onion minced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil preferably extra virgin
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Marinate the Chicken

  • Set the chicken breasts in a rimmed dish or baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil, vinegar, and seasonings, and turn to coat the chicken on all sides. Set it aside for 20-30 minutes to marinate, or cover and set in the refrigerator for up to 18 hours.

Make the Bruschetta Topping

  • Dice the tomatoes, mince the garlic, onion, and basil.
  • Optional Step: Lightly sauté the garlic in a small skillet in olive oil for about 3 minutes. This will take some of the harshness out of the raw garlic.
  • Mix the tomatoes, garlic, onion, basil, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper together in a bowl. Set aside or cover and keep in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.

Cook the Chicken

  • Grill: Preheat a gas grill to medium heat, about 375°F (~190°C). Set the chicken breasts on the grill, cover, and cook for about 7 minutes without moving them. Gently turn the chicken once, close the grill, and cook for another 7-8 minutes.
  • Stovetop: Heat about a tablespoon of oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the chicken breasts and cook 6-7 minutes without moving them. Flip the chicken breasts and cook for another 6-7 minutes, until cooked through.
  • Air Fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 350°F (~177°C). Set the chicken breasts in the air fryer basket with a little space between them. Close and cook for about 10 minutes, then turn the chicken breasts over. Close and cook for another 10 minutes until cooked through.
  • *Note: Cook time will vary depending on the size of the chicken breasts and heat source. Use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature of the chicken breasts has reached 165°F (~74°C).
  • Remove the chicken breasts and set them on a plate to rest about 4-5 minutes.

Assemble and Serve

  • Set the chicken on a plate. Spoon the bruschetta mixture on top of the chicken, then sprinkle with a little more balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze, salt to taste, and extra basil.

Notes

To store leftovers: Transfer the leftover chicken and bruschetta to an airtight container or zip top bag. Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Keto Popcorn (Cheese Puffs Recipe)

This content originally appeared on Low Carb Yum. Republished with permission.

No other snack goes with the movies quite like popcorn does. Munching on the salty pieces is just part of the experience. Unfortunately, popcorn is made from corn, which is really high in carbs.

So, of course, you know I had to find an alternative. Just because I am on the keto diet doesn’t mean I have to give up my favorite snacks! I just have to use low-carb ingredients instead of corn.

This snack might not have the exact same texture as popcorn, but it does have the same satisfying crunch and satiates your craving for a salty snack!

Ingredients Needed for Keto Popcorn

There is only one ingredient in this recipe. All you need is a block of white cheddar cheese!

Visit the original post for some other flavors, ideas, and ways that you can change this recipe up and make different types of keto popcorn.

Quick Tips

  • Cut the cheese evenly. In order for the cheese to all have the same texture, cut it into ½-inch cubes.
  • Dry the cheese before baking it. If there is moisture in the cheese before you bake it, you will have to bake it for a longer amount of time.
  • Place popcorn cheese on paper towels. After the popcorn cheese finishes baking, place the cheese on paper towels. Oil might release from the cheese as it bakes, so the paper towels will absorb it and make the popcorn even crispier.

Course Snack
Cuisine American
Keyword cheese, popcorn
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Resting Time 3 days
Total Time 3 days 18 minutes
Servings 5 servings
Calories 183kcal

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces white cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Cut the cheese into ½ inch cubes and place onto a parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet.
  • Cover the cheese with a light kitchen towel and allow it to sit in a dry place for 3 days. You want the cheese to be completely hardened before baking. See note drying in a refrigerator instead.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bake the hardened cheese for 5-8 minutes until it pops up like popcorn and gets golden brown on the edges.
  • Allow the keto popcorn to cool and serve.

Notes

You can dry the cheese cubes out for 4 to 7 days (the longer the more dry they will get) uncovered in the refrigerator. But let them sit out for at least 2 hours before baking. Then bake 12 to 16 minutes or until they pop and brown.

If there is more moisture in the cheese, it will need a longer bake time.

Oil may be released from the cheese as it bakes. If desired, you can place the cheese cubes on paper towels after baking to absorb away the oil.

Air Fryer Garlic Mushrooms

This content originally appeared here. Republished with permission.

It’s official. Cooking mushrooms in the air fryer is my new preferred way to make them. Why? Well, air frying mushrooms is faster than oven roasting, there’s less cleanup, and they taste absolutely perfect!

It’s for these same reasons I absolutely love cooking zucchini, sweet potato fries, and heck, even pork tenderloin in my air fryer!

And did I mention these air fryer garlic mushrooms are vegan, Whole 30, paleo, gluten-free, keto, low-carb, and WW friendly?

I know that’s a long list, but basically, all I’m saying is that this recipe works for lots and lots of different ways of healthy eating. So whatever diet your family is following, this is a side dish that would work for pretty much everyone!

Maybe the best thing about this recipe though is that it’ll turn even mushroom skeptics into mushroom lovers! Yup, it’s really that good!

This mushroom recipe is a delicious side dish, made with just a few simple staple ingredients.
Course Side Dish
Cuisine American
Keyword garlic, mushrooms
Servings 4 servings
Calories 76kcal

Equipment

  • Air Fryer

Ingredients

Garlic Mushrooms

  • 16 oz. baby bella mushrooms
  • 1.5 tablespoons oil of choice see variations below
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Asian-Inspired Variation, All Optional

  • 1.5 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2  green onions  sliced

Italian-Inspired Variation, All Optional

  • 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley minced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos

Instructions

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. If your air fryer doesn’t have a preheat setting, turn to 400 degrees and wait about 5 minutes for it to come to temperature.
  • Meanwhile, cut the mushrooms in half and mince the garlic.
  • Add the mushrooms, oil of choice, salt, and garlic to a large bowl. If using the optional balsamic vinegar or coconut aminos, add that in as well. Mix well to coat the mushrooms with the oil and seasonings.
  • Once the air fryer is hot, pour the seasoned mushrooms into the air fryer basket in a single layer. Although the mushrooms may touch (they’ll shrink a lot during cooking), be careful not to overcrowd the basket too much.
  • Close the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes, then stop to gently shake the basket or use a spatula to turn them.

    Air fry again for another 5-7 minutes, checking near the end of the cook time to make sure they aren’t overcooking.

  • Transfer the cooked mushrooms to a serving bowl or dish, garnish with green onions or parsley (if using), and serve!

Notes

To store leftovers: Transfer any leftovers to an airtight container, or transfer to a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

To reheat leftovers in the air fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, then add leftovers to the air fryer basket. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until heated through and beginning to crisp up again.

Eggciting Repices for Your Next Breakfast or Brunch

Eggs are the preferred to-go for breakfast and brunch. They are not just healthy; they are also versatile, as proven by the recipes we have put together for you. Try them out and turn your average dish into a tasty crowd-pleaser.

Prosciutto Egg Cups

On lazy mornings, you only need three main ingredients to prep up for a hearty breakfast: prosciutto, spinach leaves, and eggs. Arrange them as instructed in a muffin tin or silicone cups, and air-fry or bake them for about 10 minutes. No fuss, no wasted time.

Eggs Baked in Avocado

This creamy recipe has probably everything you are looking for in a recipe. It’s low-carb, rich in fiber and healthy fats, satiating, and gorgeous-looking. Eat your serving on its own, or pair it with some low-carb bread. Best eaten immediately after making them, but leftovers can be stored in the fridged and reheated.

Savory Frittata

The egg and cream mixture, stuffed with sweet potatoes, onions, spinach, and feta cheese, and livened up with a dash of cumin, proves that this Italian dish is not just a fancy word for the omelet. Pair it with your favorite salad if having it for light dinner.

Egg Wrap Recipe

If you miss your classic sausage roll because you are following a low-carb meal plan, this is a great alternative. It uses thin egg crepe for the wrap, and it is stuffed with avocado and jalapeño cream cheese for more nutrition and flavor. It is filling, not to mention delicious when eaten warm or cold.

Cheese Quiche

This is an easy keto recipe you can prepare on the weekend for a week’s worth of breakfast. This creamy, crustless quiche is made up of eggs, cheese, and butter, but you can customize it to include pre-cooked meats and low-carb vegetables.

Mini-Egg Fast Pizzas

Mini pizzas for brunch? If it is savory and quick to prepare like this recipe, it is easy to give a big nod. Feel free to tweak it with your favorite spices and herbs. A word of caution: this is another family-hit dish, so you might want to make a double batch.

Bacon Egg Muffin Tops

The shredded cheese, scrambled eggs, and bacon bits as muffin toppings undeniably look inviting for your little kids (and your kid at heart). You can add some cooked spinach to the scrambled eggs to supplement the recipe with green veggies.

Comfort Without the Carbs: Dishes to Warm and Restore

This content originally appeared on diaTribe. Republished with permission.

By Catherine Newman

In the most unusual of times, we bring you low-carb comfort food for good days, bad days, cold days, and everything in between – these recipes will warm you right up and make you feel like things are okay in the world

These dishes are the fleece blankets of the dinner world. They’re so warm and cozy that they’ll give you a kind of “bring it on” feeling about both life and cold weather. They cook forever and smell fantastic while they’re in the oven or on the stovetop, and they look great by candlelight even if they don’t all photograph that well. And, yes, most of them are not exactly light – they’re more like stick-to-your-ribs fare, made to be eaten before you go ice skating in the dark or, even, before you curl up to watch whatever show it is you’re binge watching.

Low-carb comfort food might sound like an oxymoron – where’s the pasta? the potatoes? – but trust me when I tell you that these hit all of the same notes as the classics. They’re long-cooked and aromatic and totally like what your grandma used to make, if your grandma made the kind of meal you’d order at an American diner. Plus, they’re unfancy crowd pleasers, and the leftovers always heat up well. While none of them are going to win any prizes in, say, the salad category, they do all offer way more in vegetable matter than their carbier cousins, which means loads of bonus nutrition in every bite. So, hunker down, give in to the cozy, and enjoy.

1. Baked Zucchatoni

Warm dish

Image source: Catherine Newman

This is like a cross between an unfussy lasagna and a baked ziti: cheesy, rich, and deeply satisfying, despite the actual absence of noodles. Even my daughter, who tends to be totally skeptical about “fake vegetable pasta dishes,” loves it. Don’t be daunted by the ribboning of the zucchini with a vegetable peeler: it honestly doesn’t take that long, and the resulting strands are thinner and wider and just generally more noodle-like than what you’d get with a spiralizer. That said, if you want to start with a pound of zoodles, go ahead – just be sure to salt and drain them really, really well or the resulting dish will be watery. One last thing: if you’d prefer a meat sauce, go ahead and brown a pound of ground beef after you sauté the onions and before you add the tomatoes – and expect the dish to feed more people that way.

2. Best-Ever Beef Stew

Warm dish

Image source: Catherine Newman

This classic stew should be the mascot of your winter kitchen. It’s completely delicious, and it smells fabulous during its long stint in the oven, filling the house with warmth and promise. I love mushrooms, and the fact that they’re healthy, but if you don’t like them or don’t have any, just leave them out. This stew takes a long time to make, but honestly, after the rigorous and somewhat tedious browning of the meat, the oven does most of the work. Serve it with Creamy Mashed Cauliflower and a nice sharply-dressed green salad.

View the recipe.

3. Chicken (Sort of) Noodle Soup

Warm dish

Image source: Catherine Newman

This recipe is designed around the chicken-eating habits of your household: if you love rotisserie chicken, but favor one kind of meat over the other, then just enjoy your favorite parts, and make soup with the rest of it! Or feel free to devote the whole chicken to the soup—just pull off your favorite meat and dice it, then add it back at the end once the soup is cooked. Please note that you don’t have to use all of the noodle-like ingredients (of course). The zucchini strands are tender; the mushrooms are chewy; the cabbage is strand-like and toothsome – but omit any that you don’t like or don’t have.

View the recipe.

4. Cottage Pie

Warm dish

Image source: Catherine Newman

If your own mum isn’t English, then maybe you don’t know the difference between shepherd’s pie and cottage pie – but I do! Shepherd’s pie is traditionally made with lamb; cottage pie usually means beef. But just use whatever meat – and whatever name – you prefer. This is homey comfort food at its best, even with cauliflower swapped in for the usual mashed potatoes.

5 High-Protein and Flavorful Shrimp Recipes

It is easy to understand why shrimps are a favorite option among people with diabetes. They are high in protein, the macronutrient that makes you feel fuller and consequently reduces your craving for unnecessary and sugar spiking carbs. Apart from this effect on appetite, protein is also good for your bones, muscles, and blood pressure, among others.

But let’s not stop at discussing their health benefits. Let’s also explore how we can prepare them for easy, quick, and tasty meals with your loved ones.

Zucchini Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Zucchini Shrimp Fra Diavolo

What do you get if you mix spiraled zucchini, sauteed shrimps and Arrabbiata sauce? A spicy Italian treat! Zucchini is a great low-calorie replacement for noodles but be sure not to overcook it as it gets mushy and watery. If you have kids, you can serve a different sauce for them. Suggested options include mild marinara, pesto, or with garlic, lemon, and a little salt.

Sesame Shrimp Stir Fry

Sesame Shrimp Stir Fry

With shrimps paired with broccoli, this is one of the healthy recipes you’d like to keep at hand. The toasted sesame seeds add more texture, and with the other condiments into the mix, it’s a “party in your mouth.” It has a hint of sweetness, which appeals to kids and picky eaters.

shrimp spaghetti squash Alfredo with broccoli

Shrimp Spaghetti Squash Alfredo with Broccoli

This is another Italian recipe that replaces high-carb fettucini noodles with the blood sugar-friendly option, spaghetti squash. The pan-fried shrimps, steamed broccoli, and “noodles” blend well with the creamy and cheesy Alfredo sauce. No broccoli in the fridge? Don’t worry, you can replace it with any spinach, kale, or other low-carb vegetables.

Shrimp Gumbo

This shrimp-based, vegetable-loaded recipe takes a longer time to prepare than the other recipes on this list, but the flavor and nutrition you get from it make the effort worth it. Many people often consume it with rice, but low-carb bread and fresh salad are friendlier to your pancreas.

Spicy Shrimp Taco Lettuce Wraps

The regular tacos are high in carbs but if you use lettuce wraps and stuffed them with spicy shrimps and avocado tomato salsa, you’re in for a low-carb Mexican celebration. Top it with some creamy jalapeno and cilantro lime sauce for an added kick. You will want to have more after a serving but each taco has only 4g of net carbs, which is a pretty good deal.

Healthy, Low-Carb Flaxseed Hamburger Buns

This content originally appeared on ForGoodMeasure. Republished with permission.

The obvious low-carb bun option is a crispy bed of iceberg lettuce. I’ll admit it has merit —  refreshing, crunchy & guilt-free. But sometimes you want something more — more substantial, more bread-like. Nutrient-rich, high-fiber ground flaxseed ensures this recipe’s low-carb footprint, while apple cider vinegar combines with baking soda to lend these buns the airy lift we expect from a yeast bread. A great base layer for Apple Turkey BurgersSalmon Cakes or for a lighter, vegetarian option, try a Zucchini Latke.

Cauliflower Risotto with Asparagus and Mushrooms

Cauliflower “rice” isn’t new to the low-carb society, but this variation is just full of flavor. Simply stir-fry onion and garlic in oil and then add the sliced mushroom, asparagus, cauliflower, and other ingredients as instructed. Healthy, easy, and tasty.
