Keto Lasagna

How do you eat lasagna when you are on the keto diet? One way is to use low-carb noodles. I’ve discovered that my kids aren’t huge fans of them. They would rather eat a meal without any noodles than try those sugar-free ones. 

Keto Lasagna Stuffed Chicken Recipe

That’s where this recipe came from. I wanted something that tasted and looked just like lasagna without the noodles. 

How To Make Low-Carb Lasagna Stuffed Chicken 

The secret to this recipe is that the chicken breasts are stuffed with yummy cheese! In fact, there are three different types of cheese in it. 

Keto Lasagna Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Here’s what is in my keto lasagna stuffed chicken. 

  • Chicken breasts – don’t substitute with chicken thighs, there isn’t enough meat on a thigh to slice in half and stuff. 
  • Olive Oil – you can replace this with avocado oil 
  • Ricotta Cheese
  • Mozzarella Cheese 
  • Parmesan Cheese – use fresh-grated parmesan cheese, it has a better flavor 
  • Egg
  • Italian seasoning – if you don’t have any you can use a combination of basil, parsley, and oregano 
  • Marinara Sauce – make sure you are using a sugar-free sauce

How To Prep

Save yourself precious time in the kitchen by slicing and stuffing the chicken the night before.

Then, store it covered in the refrigerator until dinner time. All you have to do is put it in a pre-heated oven and bake it for 35 minutes. It’s so easy! 

 

This is a perfect freezer meal too. Freeze it before you bake it. Here’s how. 

  1. Stuff the chicken breast like normal.
  2. Place the stuffed chicken breasts on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  3. Put the sheet pan in the freezer. 
  4. After the chicken breasts are frozen solid, move them to a freezer bag. 

Store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

When you are ready to cook them, put the bag in the refrigerator to thaw the night before. Then, bake them in the oven like normal. Don’t forget to put the marinara sauce in the casserole dish and on top of the chicken before you cook it.
