  • 0.5 oz dry Ranch seasoning 1/2 packet
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese shredded

Notes

Use regular chicken breasts or thinly sliced chicken breasts. If your chicken breasts are large, slice each one in half horizontally. By doing this, you can make 2 thinly sliced chicken breasts out of each large chicken breast.
The chicken should be cooked through in about 20 minutes. The actual time depends on your oven. All ovens are different. It also depends on the thickness of your chicken breasts. Thin chicken breasts will cook faster.
The chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink in the center.
When broiling, check often. Make sure the cheese doesn't burn too much on top of the chicken.

Keto Garlic Butter Shrimp with Asparagus

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

 

  • shrimp
  • asparagus tips (or cut the thick ends off of regular asparagus)
  • lemons
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • That’s it, well plus a little salt and pepper. Maybe even some red chili flakes if you like a bit of spice.

Keto Garlic Butter Shrimp with Asparagus

It’s just as perfect for busy weeknights as it is for a romantic date night. This recipe has really become a staple menu item for Lauren and me lately, we’ve had it at least twice this week already… don’t judge.

When I began work on this recipe, It was supposed to be shrimp scampi over miracle/konjac noodles. Instead, I opted to add asparagus instead and bump up the nutritional value of this meal. After a little research on shrimp scampi (I’m about to nerd out a little bit), I found out that shrimp scampi is somewhat of a misnomer. Scampi actually refers to an entirely different species of sea creature, and although it’s appearance is similar to that of shrimp it is actually a lobster, a Norway Lobster to be exact.

Keto Garlic Butter Shrimp with Asparagus

Anyway, this recipe really is a delicious and equally nutritious dinner option plus you can have leftovers for lunch the next day. These are leftover you’ll actually be excited to finish off. Unlike that one recipe you made 3 weeks ago, you know the one. The one that keeps getting pushed back further and further in the abyss of the fridge.

I’ve added four cloves of garlic, which is a pretty generous amount (this is garlic butter shrimp after all!) but if you want to decrease it a little that’s fine too.

Keto Garlic Butter Shrimp with Asparagus

I think this is best served hot from the skillet. While you can reheat it, it’s easy to overcook it so just be aware of that.
