Eating healthy is awesome but at times the food, in particular, gets a little too boring. With not many choices you tend to repeat your recipes. This can sometimes take you on the verge of a breakdown (and ruining your diet) because deep inside, you crave to eat food that comes in those takeout boxes and is amazingly delicious, loaded off course but yes unavoidably tasty.
Whenever I am in such a dilemma, I always make myself something that is loaded with herbs and flavors, it satiates me to the next level. Chicken is my favorite dinner, this chicken breast seasoned with garlic, basil, and red pepper flakes peps and lifts my mood.
The best part of this recipe is that it's loaded with proteins and very less calories, It’s just perfect for a hearty meal. Make a side of grilled veggies along with this and you will be sorted. Try this really simple Herbed Baked Chicken Breast recipe yourself tonight and you will fall in love with its simplicity and flavor too.

You don’t have to give up on your favorite dishes if you are on a KETO DIET. You just need to make a few good chances. Small alterations in the recipes and a few alternate ingredients would still let you enjoy your all-time favorites. I love Chicken Thai Noodles and have been very loyal to this dish as long as I can remember. I am sure you would have your specific favorite dishes too.
So since the time I have been on this KETO DIET, I have given this dish a new improved KETO WAY. Despite using the regular noodles, I add ZOODLES (zucchini noodles) to the dish. It gets so much more nutritious this way. You get a wholesome amount of protein from the chicken. Zucchini is a very good source of dietary fiber, protein, vitamins A, C and B6, and a lot more. Make it this weekend and surprise everyone at home.
