Need super quick and easy dinner ideas? We’ve got ya covered!
Easy keto skillet recipes are my favorite, because they are usually pretty easy to throw together on busy evenings. Plus, you’re only left with one pan to wash — yippee! Better yet, with these 3 simple one-skillet meals, you only need about 5 ingredients for each!
There are often occasions when I just don’t have the time or energy to cook a homemade meal that requires quite a bit prep and lots of ingredients. This is when store-bought zucchini noodles, canned sauces from the pantry, and a grocery store rotisserie chicken can come in handy!
Here are 3 yummy keto skillet recipes you can compile in less than 20 minutes for a no-fuss dinner!
1. Keto Alfredo Zucchini Noodles with Chicken
Here’s a rich and creamy chicken dinner using frozen zucchini spirals from the store that can be heated on the stove in just a few minutes!
2. Keto Spicy Sausage Skillet
This sausage one-skillet meal is bursting with Italian and Cajun flavors and reminds me of jambalaya. We’re using a bag of riced cauliflower as a quick shortcut to get dinner done in a flash and keep it low-carb!
Need a skillet recommendation?! I have tested a ton of nonstick skillets over the years and love Hexclad skillets, pictured above! They are nonstick, can be used at high heat, and with metal utensils. My set has had constant use for over 7 months, and looks brand new still!
3. Keto Carnitas Salad
This pork carnitas salad is so hearty and delicious that you won’t even miss the carbs! We are starting with some yummy carnitas meat from Trader Joe’s. Your local grocery store may sell something similar. If you feel like creating your own, try this yummy homemade slow cooker carnitas as a food prep idea!
