Keto Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Tuscan garlic chicken is one of the most popular menu items at Italian restaurants like Olive Garden. That creamy garlic sauce is to-die-for!

However, the restaurant original has a lot of flour…and carbs! That’s why we made this keto copycat version of Olive Garden Tuscan Chicken – all of the flavor and only 9 grams net carbs per serving!

We like to serve this healthy Tuscan chicken recipe over zucchini noodles (aka. “zoodles”) or cauliflower rice. We also added wilted spinach for an extra nutritional punch!

One more awesome thing about making your own Tuscan garlic chicken at home is that it is a lot more budget-friendly. Meal planning and eating out less saved us a LOT of money (click here to read more about how we saved with meal planning!)

Prep Tips:

  • Look for Italian seasoning without added sugar or starches – some store-bought seasoning mixes contain additives and extra carbs.
  • We like to grate fresh parmesan instead of buying the packaged powdered cheeses. Sometimes shredded or packaged cheese contain fillers.
  • To make this recipe dairy-free, simply swap coconut milk or cashew milk for the heavy cream.
