I freaking love Pachos from Kelly O’Bryans restaurant and finally decided to make my own keto pacho chicken recipe. 

Since starting to follow a ketogenic lifestyle I have craved Pachos something fierce.  Whenever we go out for dinner at Kelly O’s I would order chicken fajitas with pacho sauce just to get a little taste of my favorite dish.  I came up with this keto pacho chicken recipe so that I could enjoy the amazing flavour combination of emerald isle dressing, bacon, cheese and green onions at home.

Covering chicken breast with pacho toppings has totally satisfied my craving for this iconic dish.  I think that this would be fun to try on steamed cauliflower or baked radishes too.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp stevia granulated sweetener
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 chicken breast, cooked and cubed
  • 1/4 cup tex mex shredded cheese
  • 1 slice of bacon , cooked and diced
  • 1/2 green onion stalk, diced

Tips for keto cooking:

  • Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes.  Like cauliflower instead of perogies and radishes instead of potatoes.
  • Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats.  Sometimes its hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
  • Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
  • Find recipes that you love, like this Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole, Taco Bake and Hamburger Soup, and use them in your weekly rotation.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools (aff links) like this food scale, these measuring cups and a Kitchen Aid mixer.
