KETO CRACK CHICKEN
My KetoLuxe Crack Chicken recipe is gourmet deliciousness. Bye bye mushy chicken with lots of artificial flavors. Hello deliciousness!
When we first started eating keto, I searched the web for recipes. Over and over again, I found people exclaiming about Crack Chicken. Crack Chicken! Even though I’ve heard that “crack is whack,” I thought I’d give it a try. Sam’s response was that the bacon and cheese almost made it palatable. Side note: Sam hates ranch dressing and mushy food. What’s a chef who wants to make easy dinners to do?
Well, keto friends, I started experimenting to make my own version of Crack Chicken. So first, I created the KetoLuxe Ranch Seasoning Blend to be free from fillers and sugar. That cut out unnecessary carbs and yucky stuff I didn’t want to put into my body. Then, I realized that I could make it better by poaching the chicken rather than using a slow cooker. This eliminated the mush factor that Sam found revolting. Finally, I added Candied Bacon Roses for a salty, sweet touch. Ta da! Sam pronounced it delicious!
Chef Alexa shreds the chicken using a mixer. That makes it fast and easy.
Make this when you have extra hungry people to feed. It will only take a few minutes to shred the chicken. Complete it with the shredded cheddar, Baked Bacon, and Candied Bacon Roses that you made when prepping for the week. If you’re feeling extra fancy, make a Crack Chicken bar with other toppings such as jalapenos, Parmesan, scallions, and lettuce wraps. Add a salad topped with crunchy vegetables, and you’re good to go!

I like this best when topped with jalapenos, too. Add some for an extra zing.
