KETO DIET Keto Dinner Ideas

Keto Chicken and Dumplings

Keto Chicken and Dumplings. Wait… that’s an oxymoron, right? How can you have keto dumplings since dumplings are made from dough?

Well, with low carb almond flour, of course, keto dumplings are made!

My friends, the answer to all of your comfort food cravings is this amazing keto dumpling casserole. Exactly what you need on a cold winter’s night is the delicious, creamy chicken with the soft, hearty dumplings.

Although, to be honest, on a hot summer’s day, I would still eat this dish even. It’s that good!

Can You Store this?

Absolutely! After all, like my Keto broccoli casserole or Keto taco casserole, tasty leftovers are one of the main reasons I like making casseroles in the first place. Sometimes they taste even better the next day, I swear.

To let your leftovers fully cool is step one. While it’s still warm if you try to cover the dish, that can make your casserole soggy and you’ll get condensation. No thank you!

Store the leftovers in an airtight container once the chicken and dumplings are completely cooled. For about 3-4 days, this dish will stay fresh in the refrigerator.
