What to Serve with Baked Pizza stuffed chicken
While this pepperoni pizza chicken was baking, I made a salad then a veggie and dinner was done. Easy peasy! The perfect weeknight dinner for when things are crazy busy.
You can also serve this over pasta for those in your house who eat it, over zoodles to keep it low carb or by itself.
My perfect meal when making this keto baked chicken recipe is serving it with a Low Carb Caesar salad.
Variations of this recipe
Change up the meat. If you are not a fan of pepperoni you can totally use Italian sausage, just cook it in a pan, slice it and use it instead of the pepperoni.
Add veggies. In the mood for more veggies? Add some spinach, diced tomatoes, sliced onions, or green bell peppers. You can even make some zucchini noodles instead of a side veggie and serve this pizza baked chicken on top of them.
What Low Carb Sauce is Best for Pizza Stuffed Chicken?
I personally prefer to use a low carb marinara sauce when making this recipe. You can use your favorite sauce, or try out one of the low carb marinara sauces that we enjoy using. You can also use homemade marinara sauce if you want to. I like to make and freeze homemade marinara sauce so I have it on hand when I want to use it.
