Low Carb Chicken Meatballs Alfredo

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Prepare Meatballs: In a bowl, mix together ground chicken, almond flour, egg, minced garlic, salt, and pepper until well combined. Form the mixture into small meatballs.
  2. Cook Meatballs: In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the meatballs and cook until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 7-8 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  3. Make Alfredo Sauce: In the same skillet, add heavy cream, butter, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Add Cheese: Add grated Parmesan cheese to the skillet and stir until melted and the sauce is creamy.
  5. Combine and Simmer: Return the cooked meatballs to the skillet with the Alfredo sauce, tossing to coat. Simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat the meatballs through.
  6. Serve: Serve the meatballs with your choice of side, such as steamed broccoli or a green salad.

Variations & Tips:

  • Seasoning: For more flavor in the meatballs, add Italian seasoning or red pepper flakes to the meat mixture.
  • Adding Veggies: Consider adding spinach or chopped zucchini to the Alfredo sauce for added nutrition and color.
  • Dairy-Free Option: Use coconut cream and nutritional yeast instead of heavy cream and Parmesan cheese for a dairy-free alternative.
