Comfort food at it's finest!

Macro Friendly Alpine Chicken

If this is your first visit to my recipes, welcome! If you are a returner, thank you!

I am a true believer that the world of food should be open to a person and moderation in all things is a great way to live life, that’s why I specialize in creating macro-friendly recipes that are much easier to “fit” in moderation.

As you get to know me, you will find that all my recipes use a moderate to few amount of ingredients because I also believe that cooking should be stress free and not break the budget. I encourage that for all of my recipes you look into buying frozen rather than fresh to promote longevity of each food item if you do not use it again right away.

I would also love to hear your personal spin on any of my recipes! As always, have fun and please enjoy!

This recipe was created at the request of my mom! We always ate this dish growing up without realizing how incredibly dense it was! (In all ways possible, carbohydrates, fat and protein making it ridiculously high in calories!) It was her request that I figure out a way to make a macro friendly version for mothers day, so away my imagination went and the macro friendly alpine chicken was born!

In this recipe you will find a very genuine tasting version of Alpine chicken (vegetarian version also found below), baked to perfection with all the bready, creamy delight of the traditional recipe. This recipe is great to make for the family and makes for a protein packed healthy choice! Highly recommend serving with a side of vegetables! (sauteed mushrooms are delightful with it!)

This recipe is suitable for bariatric patients, vegetarians, body builders, anyone who is practicing moderation or just someone looking for a delicious and comfort food inspired classic!
