Macro-Friendly Creamy Parmesan Tuscan Chicken Meal Prep

Lets Reach Your Goals!

So there’s a lot of creamy chicken recipes out there that fit the bill for a ketogenic or low-carb diet, but Ive decided to try my hand at making a more versatile, macro-friendly version that can be used in a more moderate-higher carb approach as well. The result turned out pretty darn good!

By making the switch from a heavy cream based sauce to Greek cream cheese, the fat content is lowered considerably without taste loss!

I’ve been making this one a lot for meal preps recently.
