Helpful Recipe Tips

  • I have found ranch seasoning in a few different areas. A use Penzeys and the keto friendly one by Select Savory Seasonings, in store you come across Hidden Valley ranch that contains maltodextrin.
  • The cheeses in the sauce create the thickness. If you want to remove one cheese be sure to add a thickener such as arrowroot, tapioca or xanthan gum.
  • You can use any chicken you choose. I chose to chop up my chicken because it’s spread out more throughout the recipe.
