MY OTHER RECIPES


I’ve been stuffing my face with Korean street food for the last 72 hours.

And it’s been amazing.

Epic amazing.

But.

I need some American food.

And all I’ve been thinking about is this.

One Pan Pizza Chicken - Win win chicken dinner! A ONE PAN meal. And it's a LOW CARB cheesy goodness meal for the whole family to enjoy on a busy weeknight!

An all-American classic pizza chicken bake.

It has all the benefits of a cheesy pizza.

Without the carbs.

So we all win here.

And since this is low carb, maybe we can add a few more pepperonis.

Because we really need to make up for the difference somehow.
