Grilled Pesto Chicken with Cheese & Parsley Cauliflower Mash and Sauteed Mushrooms | Keto Recipes

In this video

I had a friend of mine Bipro coming home for lunch, he’s the lead singer of a heavy metal band called Albatross, who have been on the show before. Anyway long story short I cooked up a Pesto Grilled Chicken with a chunky cauliflower mash which had cheese and parsley and some sauteed mushrooms with sour cream and chives.

It was delicious and the best part is the recipe is super simple, prepared in minutes and is great meal prep option too.

I’m not putting macros for the chicken because you only need to input the weight of the chicken breast/thigh that you use and 1 Tablespoon of HK’s Keto Pesto per piece of chicken. It’s pretty simple. Even the mushrooms there are like 3 ingredients so you only need to really input the raw materials. I will try and put macros on the website when it’s launched next week.

For now just leaving them out.
