Keto Butter Chicken with Noodles

I started following the keto diet on June 1st and I’m down 16 lbs. I tried it last year for a few months and lost some weight. Then life happened and I stopped. I felt better when I was on it so I decided to try again. So far so good!

I was getting the Keto Can subscription box delivered every month and inside one of the boxes was this recipe for Keto Butter Chicken with Noodles. I adore Butter Chicken and kept the recipe on my fridge to try eventually. Finally, I made it and wow, is it ever good!

It’s not as saucey as some of the Butter Chicken recipes I’ve tried in the past. Even so, it’s still loaded with flavor. The chicken is very tender and melts in your mouth.

Palmini Noodles

The noodles look like real noodles, don’t they? They aren’t, not to worry. They are Palmini noodles which are made from Hearts of Palm. I received a can of Palmini noodles in my subscription box and I saved them to try with this recipe.

You can tell by the texture when you eat them that they aren’t pasta. However, they still tasted good and were a good carb-free alternative. Over 90% of Palmini noodles is water.

You can find them at Amazon.comLow Carb Canada and Amazon.ca

If you can’t find them, don’t worry. Use zucchini noodles instead. No biggie.
