Juicy herb-seasoned chicken breasts are topped with melty mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes laced with basil and garlic before drizzled with balsamic glaze for the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors – this meal will delight everyone and is easy enough for anyone in your household to prepare!
To prepare this grilled bruschetta chicken recipe, first marinate the chicken breasts. Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic cloves, lemon juice, oregano and salt before seasoning both sides of each breast with this marinade mixture and place in a shallow dish or 1-gallon sealable plastic bag to marinate for at least an hour but up to 12 hours in an refrigerator or shallow dish. While waiting, make the bruschetta topping by mixing olive oil, chopped basil, minced garlic cloves and diced tomatoes before seasoning according to taste with salt & pepper as needed.
Once the chicken has marinated, heat a grill or grill pan until hot before adding the marinated chicken pieces and cooking for 5-6 minutes on each side until an internal temperature of 165 degrees F has been achieved. When finished cooking, remove from heat and top each piece with mozzarella cheese slices; spoon bruschetta topping on top of them then drizzle a balsamic glaze (optional).
This bruschetta chicken makes a fantastic low-carb dinner or light lunch option – simply serve with pasta, salad or garlic bread for an unforgettable keto experience! Plus you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days for optimal storage!
A whole head of cabbage can become an indulgently filling dinner when filled with ground beef and rice in this healthy stuffed cabbage recipe. A homemade tomato sauce adds depth of flavor, before the rolls of cabbage leaves are baked to perfection in the oven for maximum ease and comfort. Plus, this meal also freezes well so you can easily have dinner when needed.
Start with a head of cabbage that has been washed and blanched (boiling for five minutes) prior to beginning this recipe. Blanching makes the outer leaves flexible enough to fold over meat without tearing when removed from their heads, as well as helping prevent tearout. Next, select 12 of the largest leaves from each head. Set them aside while they cool before using a paring knife to shave off their thick center stems using an additional cutting board as extra cabbage for future dishes or snacking!
This stuffed cabbage recipe boasts an effortless sauce made with San Marzano tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic and brown sugar for balance. This combination creates an unrivalled tomato sauce full of acidity from vinegar while remaining sweet with brown sugar sweetness and black pepper spice for optimal results.
To assemble this delicious cabbage dish, place a piece of the seasoned ground beef in the center of each leaf and roll them up tightly around it, folding in sides as you go. Arrange in an ovenproof baking dish with some sauce on top, and bake for approximately one hour, until cabbage is fully cooked through and sauce is bubbly. Ideally served immediately but can also be refrigerated for up to three days in an airtight container or frozen up to one month for later enjoyment!
Air Fryer Steak Bites

They’re easy to make and require only minimal ingredients – perfect for anyone on a low-carb diet or looking to shed unwanted weight! Additionally, this keto meal can serve as an introduction to ketogenic diet if it seems appropriate; be sure to consult your physician first when making major dietary changes!
To prepare this mouthwatering keto dinner recipe, preheat an air fryer. Next, coat steak bites in a mixture of compliant cooking oils (such as olive or avocado oil), coconut aminos and steak seasoning blend. When they’re all coated up, place in the air fryer for about seven minutes before removing and serving with garlic butter sauce!
Finding an irresistibly tender steak bite requires selecting a cut with plenty of marbling; this will ensure tender and flavorful bites without rubbery texture often associated with cheaper cuts of meat. Once the steak has been prepared, add it to a bowl filled with melted butter, adding in minced garlic for additional spice and aroma.
Finish off this dish by topping your steak bites with several tablespoons of fresh parsley, before enjoying them with your favorite dipping sauce such as this homemade blue cheese dip. Any leftover steak bites can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for three days; they may also be frozen up to two or three months in a freezer-safe bag or container before simply defrosting overnight in the refrigerator before reheating them later on.

This healthy Buffalo chicken dip recipe is packed with tons of flavor and spices – the ideal appetizer for parties, Super Bowl Sunday or just family snacking! Plus it comes together quickly in less than 30 minutes so it’s great for last-minute prep or making ahead!
Traditional Buffalo chicken dip requires lots of butter and cream cheese. To lighten it up and keep it healthy, we used cottage cheese in this version instead. Furthermore, instead of mayo we switched it out with plain Greek yogurt which has less fat and more protein.
Key to creating this healthy buffalo chicken dip are its delicious combination of herbs and spices – particularly garlic powder and honey, which pair so nicely with the spicy buffalo sauce in this dish! You’ll love this healthier take on classic dip, perfect for dipping chips, vegetables or anything else you fancy!
Use either a food processor or mix by hand when creating this healthy buffalo chicken dip, but for optimal results allow it to rest at room temperature before refrigerating for storage – then just reheat before serving!
To speed up preparation time even more, use a rotisserie chicken. Or prepare the chicken ahead in your slow cooker, shredding when ready and adding back into the dip before serving. For added crispiness on top, broil for several minutes prior to serving for best results.
