I recently took a poll on my Incredible Recipes page on Facebook and asked what types of recipes everyone wanted to see- they wanted low carb, easy, no complicated ingredients- so here my foodie friends, this one is perfect!
Perfect side dishes to go with this meal would be broccoli, green beans, a side salad- even one of my new low carb salads that I recently put up here on the blog, like my Loaded Broccoli cauliflower salad or even my bacon Pea Salad!

Remember, when making chicken, cooking time can also vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts that you’re using– the thicker the breasts, the longer they will need to cook if you’re baking them.
Using a meat thermometer comes in handy for many dishes, i always have one on hand when I cook meats just to check that the internal temperature of the cooked chicken reaches 165F!
It not only looks divine but its most definitely worthy of being served in 5 star restaurant any day!
