[AD] Low Carb Cajun Chicken Cups

These low carb cajun chicken cups are so packed full of flavour you won't even miss the carbohydrates. However, if members of your family aren't following the lifestyle then it work just as well by replacing the lettuce with a wholemeal wrap.

One of the things I have found, by following a low carb diet recently is that I really haven't missed the high starch options. It is just a different way of thinking, and these lettuce cups are a really easy way of adapting a meal that the whole family will enjoy.

Many of the keto dishes I have looked up online have had rich and creamy sauces, so to have a lunch that is packed full of flavour is a welcome change.

The Schwartz Cajun seasoning is a fantastic blend that is easy to use and packs a punch. All you need to do is mix a couple of teaspoons with a little olive oil to make a quick marinade. You can either cook the chicken and allow it to cool or use it straight from the oven. Both taste fantastic.

I have also used the cajun season with my celeriac chips recipe in replace of the paprika and it tastes equally delicious.

Ingredients for low carb cajun chicken cups
The fresh ingredients for this dish complement the seasoning of the chicken. I found that one large chicken breast was enough to make 6 cups which would serve 2 people. 

In this recipe I have used frozen avocado pieces. If you haven't tried them yet, you should. I had lost count of the times I had bought a fresh avocado and went to use it only to find that it was not ripe. A day later? Over ripe. Frozen avocado solves this problem and is a must for your freezer if you are following a low carb or ketogenic diet, in my opinion.
