Note that the U.S. Department of Agriculture advises against cooking frozen chicken in a slow cooker or crock pot because slow cookers cook at a low temperature and may not heat chicken up to 165F, which is the minimum temperature to destroy any dangerous bacteria and ensure that chicken is fully cooked. So if you’re using a crock pot or slow cooker to make Crack Chicken, make sure to defrost it first!
Hi Eva, That’s awesome that you are helping your son this way. I haven’t tried this with other tools, but you could probably use either the blender or the food processor. The key is to pulse in step 5, not just constantly blend, so that the whites don’t fully break down. Other than that, it should be pretty similar. As for the yolks, if you don’t want to make creme brulee, I usually just put a couple extras into an omelet (or breakfast casserole, or any other dish requiring cooked eggs) mixed with whole eggs.
Well… it turned out beautifully. It rose evenly, it was light, fluffy and baked through. It tasted very good, both plain and toasted with butter. I truthfully do not know if I would add the butter the next time I make a loaf because I was so pleased with this version. I will likely reduce the erythritol to 1 tablespoon or less for a more subtle sweetness in the future. This recipe has so many flavour possibilities and I look forward to trying out all of my ideas using this excellent base. It is also good to know that it can be made without the additional fat component. Don’t get me wrong, I am keto and a committed high fat enthusiast but slathering some fat on top of the bread… butter, pâté, nut butter… will work just fine for me.
Thank you so much for your recipe. This is the best keto bread recipe I have come across. There is only one suggestion it’s better to use medium size 8X4 inch pan to get perfect size slices. There is one question., can we replace coconut flour with almond flour completely? If yes what is the quantity for almond flour in this case? Thank you once again.
Ketogenic diet bread is not low calorie – swapping gluten out for almond flour and whey isolate adds a lot of calories. If you are watching your caloric intake, always consult with a doctor about a keto diet. This bread is in no way meant to be a lower calorie option – but merely a different way to get a light, bread texture without using gluten or grains.
To make Crack Chicken in a slow cooker, add the chicken and cream cheese to the slow cooker. Whisk together the water, vinegar, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, dill, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl and pour on top. Cook on LOW for 8 hours. Remove the chicken and shred it, and then add it back to the pot and stir in the cheddar. Cook the bacon in a skillet on the stovetop until crispy; cool the bacon and then crumble it on top.

Is Arbys Roast Beef bad for you


I’m so glad you love it, Tanya! Yes, $17 sounds like a lot for xanthan gum. I use this one here. Swerve is sweeter than erythritol, so you’d need less of it – I have a conversion chart here. You’re absolutely right about the xanthan gum and texture – it will make the bread more chewy. It will still be more of a “light and fluffy” bread, but definitely less muffin-like with the xanthan gum. I haven’t tried add-ins yet – let me know how it goes if you try!

What is the best app to track macros for Keto


How am I JUST coming across this recipe after almost two years of being keto? This is THE ONE!! After I made the first loaf, I knew this was going to be used for my Thanksgiving stuffing. I did a test run, and, no lie, you cannot tell that this is a keto stuffing! I’m downright giddy! So I made six loaves of this amazing bread today and put them in the freezer for Thanksgiving. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this recipe. I’m making two more loaves tomorrow for sandwiches and toast. Oh, and I used all the ingredients, including the optional ones, and the results were perfect. Hands down the best keto sandwich bread out there (and I’ve literally tried dozens).
Full of iron, vitamins, potassium, fiber, and folate-spinach is a true food superhero! Naturally low in carbohydrates, spinach is the perfect ingredient in Keto-friendly foods from breakfast til dinner. Whether it’s the featured ingredient in your main course or a savory side, there’s no reason not to add a little spinach to your meal with this list of fantastic Keto-friendly recipes!
I tried this recipe today and I’m blown away. I haven’t started Keto yet but I am soon. I’ve been trying recipes out, and I truly didn’t expect this to come out right the first time because I’ve never whipped egg whites or folded them into anything. I’m a terrible baker. It was so easy! Even my toddler and husband loves this! I didn’t use the sweetener and love the way it tastes!
This recipe uses cauliflower to stretch the lobster without losing the wonderful flavor. It’s so delicious you can eat it straight out of the bowl or wrapped in romaine lettuce. We highly suggest using mayo made from olive, coconut, or avocado oil instead of ones made using sunflower or canola oil. Keep a jar of this healthy avocado mayo in your fridge to make quick and easy keto recipes.

Can I have cream in my coffee while intermittent fasting


Well my Bread wasn’t tall enough for say sandwich stuff, and I am not sure if I did anything wrong, I know I used the wrong sized bread pan so that is one thing. However, I couldn’t believe how great it tasted, it was more like a moist custard shortbread. The texture and color were perfect. I cut some thick slices and buttered both sides cooked them in a pan. I spread some sugar-free preserves on top, wow is that good. I may not have made it as intended but I can’t complain. The flavor is amazing.

Vegetable wraps. Don’t throw out those leftover leafy greens, use them like a taco shell or wrap instead. Some vegetables that make good vegetable wraps are collard greens, butter lettuce, cabbage leaves, swiss chard, and Lacinato kale. These veggies will also provide you with one of the best ways to get more fiber, mineral, vitamins, and antioxidants into your keto diet. Some of our favorite vegetable wrapped recipes are Low Carb Corned Beef Cabbage Rolls, Spicy Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps, and Vegetarian Greek Collard Wraps. Feel free to use whatever leafy vegetables you’d like with these keto recipes.
To further enhance the flavor and health benefits, this recipe uses virgin olive oil as well. Virgin olive oil contains numerous health promoting compounds. One of the most studied compounds found in the oil is a phenolic compound called oleocanthal. Multiple studies have found that oleocanthal possesses similar anti-inflammatory properties to ibuprofen, which makes virgin olive oil a great addition to the diet to help reduce acute and chronic inflammation.

Can you eat too much fat on the keto diet


I went to buy Xanthan gum at a store in my little town and it was like $17! I wasn’t paying that much, so I made it without but I will be ordering some online. I followed your directions exactly (minus Xanthan) and used Swerve for the sweetener. I couldn’t wait for it to cool so I had a piece right after it came out of the oven, it was delicious! I find it a tad sweet for bread, but that’s ok I’ll just cut back on the sweetener if I want to eat it for a sandwich..all sweeteners are a little different. It had a beautiful crust on it and was a tiny bit crumbly, almost reminds me more of muffin texture, I’m thinking maybe the Xanthan will give it more of a chewy bread texture?

Hey Maya!! This is the 2nd recipe I’ve tried off your website and again I love it!! Turned out really well. I can have sandwiches again or a quick piece Of toast when I’m in a hurry to get out the door. I was skeptical about the xanthan gum since I tried a recipe using psyllium husk powder. I did not like it. I can’t taste the xanthan gum so I have no problem using it going forward. Thanks again for the recipe!!!

Do ulcers get worse at night


If I did not know that this was not bread made from wheat flour, I would not have known the difference – taste-wise. I added all of the ‘optional’ ingredients. Now, this loaf is not nearly the size of a regular loaf of bread. But it is incredibly filling. I slice it a touch thinner than 1/2 inch to make, what looks like, a finger sandwich. It satisfies my love for sandwiches and fills my up.
Hi Doris, Thanks so much for leaving a comment! We aren’t sure what you mean because we don’t use measurements like that in this recipe. If the amount of cream cheese is the issue, 16 oz = 2 (8 oz) blocks of cream cheese (because cream cheese is usually sold in 8-ounce blocks). Please let us know how we can help because we’d love for you to be able to try this!
Because of the golden brown color on this chicken dish, it looks so yummy before you even try it! Then when you cut into it and are greeted with mouthfuls of tender meat with soft and flavorsome stuffing, you will put this recipe down in your favorites section! If you don’t have a meat mallet you can use a rolling pin or even a pan to pound the chicken flat ready for rolling.
Hi Jodi, I haven’t tried that, but don’t think it would work well for this recipe. First, yeast needs sugar (for it to consume – it’s not typically in the end result), so you’d need to add that. But also, just with how we are making the bread fluffy with beaten egg whites, I don’t think yeast would work. If you want to try adding yeast to a low carb bread, I would do it with this low carb bread recipe instead.
Sushi Nori Wraps. If you like sushi, then you’ll love using nori as a keto-friendly wrap. When you add moist ingredients to it, the nori will transform from a brittle chip to a durable, pliable wrap. What’s even better is that nori wraps have no net carbs at all and only come with ten calories per sheet. Plus, they are easy to find in the grocery store, and you can even get them shipped directly to your house (just search for Nori Wraps on Amazon).
