First things first, I am not a chef. Up until this past year I basically only could make mac and cheese. When I started doing Keto I had to learn how to make meals on my own. So with my very limited budget and new health goals i have been trying every which way to be creative with food. So many recipes call for so many ingredients which cost way to much. I have made it a mission to try and find the cheapest options while still indulging in some of my favourite foods.

This is one of the first of my budget friendly recipes that I made. It is so simple and tastes SO DAMN GOOD.
Finding a low carb marinara was hard but a cup of this Classico Tomato and Basil was perfect for the recipe! 1 cup is only 5g of net carbs! 

I get my chicken breast from Costco! There is about 16 breasts for $20.00. It kept me going for like 2 1/2 weeks! 

After pouring over the cup of marinara I took 6 slices of fresh mozzarella and layed it over the chicken and peppered it. I buy pre-sliced mozzarella from target but it is cheaper to cut your own. (I am just lazy.)


Et Voila! The finished product. I am in no ways a food photographer but I promise it will get better every time. This recipe turned out so good! i just kept it at 375 degrees for 45 min. No broiling or anything! I am kind of afraid of the broiler to be honest. 

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did! Let me know what other recipes you would like to see. I can also dabble in the vegetarian/vegan side of keto too. Let me know your thoughts! 

  1. Oh my gosh, this looks so yummy! My hubby and I are always trying to find ways to make chicken more appetizing, so I'll definitely add this to the menu.
