Crunchy Ranch Chicken and Alfredo
For the Chicken:
6 Chicken Breasts
Ground flax seeds (1- 1 1/2 cups. I never really measure.)
1 Ranch Dressing Seasoning Packet
Mix ingredients together and dip your raw chicken in the mixture. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Yes! It's seriously that easy!
Tip: I like to cut my chicken breasts in half then dip them in the mixture. It's easier for portion control and my chicken bakes even.
1/2 cup Butter
1 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 cup Heavy Cream
Cook slowly on medium until all the cheese is melted and mixture has thickened a little bit. Stir often so you don't burn it. Serve over your favorite low carb veggies. My favorites are zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower.
Tip: In the photo I didn't have enough Parmesan so I used 1 cup of each of the ingredients so it's a bit thinner than I prefer. Good news it was still super awesome, plus lowered the carbs.
