Is chicken high protein?

Chicken is a great source of protein. Chicken is versatile and can be served as roast chicken, low carb chicken nuggets, low carb keto chicken salad, and my favourite, keto chicken curry with pumpkin and coconut.

Which part of the chicken you use will affect the ratio of protein and fat. You can also buy regular ground chicken or low fat ground chicken.

Simple keto burgers are the easiest to make, but when you’re craving your regular fast-food burger, there are plenty of ideas that will still fit in with your low carb keto diet.

Always remember to calculate your macros and read nutrition labels so you can count the carbs in the burger you make.

  • Avocado – sliced avocado or guacamole always belong inside a delicious and creamy keto burger.
  • Bacon – streaky bacon, crispy bacon, or bacon pieces.
  • Chicken – the recipe calls for ground chicken but you can also use chicken breast or chicken schnitzel.
  • Salad – any low carb vegetable will work. Iceberg lettuce, arugula, rocket, endive, romain lettuce, coleslaw, and sliced beef tomatoes.
  • Pickles – gherkins are wonderful inside a burger, just make sure they have no added sugar.
  • Sauces – avoid the high sugar ketchup and barbecue sauce, and use homemade sugar-free ketchup or sugar-free BBQ sauce instead.

    Love these.
    I usually make the chicken patties the day before I want to use them, it helps to firm them up and they don’t fall apart when you are cooking them.
