Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Skillet

Peace, fam! I’m back again with another simple weeknight low-carb dinner.  You can still enjoy the amazing flavors of chicken alfredo without the carbs and without whipping out your spiralizer and zucchini. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE both my spiralizer and zucchini, but sometimes you just want as few steps as possible. That’s why I bypassed making an alfredo sauce from scratch; it was surprisingly easy to find a pre-made sauce in a jar that still fit my macros. I purchased a light sauce that only contained three grams of carbs per ¼ cup serving.

I diced and cooked boneless/skinless chicken breast on a stove-top skillet, seasoning with smoked paprika (I seriously cannot get enough of the stuff), garlic, dill weed, basil paste, and black pepper. I also used sea salt but just a little. You have to remember that store-bought sauces tend to have way more than enough sodium. Once the chicken was done, I stirred in some broccoli florets and allowed them to cook until tender. Finally I added the sauce, and allowed the entire mixture to cook for about ten minutes, stirring frequently.

That was that. Remember what I’ve been saying on previous posts about not over thinking or over complicating your diet or lifestyle. I have tons of quick, easy recipes for you to browse through. Get the cooking out of the way, then get back to the important stuff! By important stuff I mean laughing, listening to music, making cheesy jokes, bothering your friends, making memories, going outside, antagonizing your spouse…serious business! Lol.
