Don’t give up on your low carb diet? Recreate your favorite foods and make them Keto friendly. These Keto BBQ Chicken Zucchini Boats were inspired by me craving my BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA.
Ingredients in this fabulous Keto BBQ Chicken Zucchini Boats include zucchini, chicken breast, bbq sauce, onion, bacon, and cheddar cheese. Be sure to see additional delicious low carb recipes below.
Keto-Friendly BBQ Sauce
For me to stick to a low carb diet, I had to find a low carb BBQ sauce. I tried several sauces and finally found one that my family could not even tell it was low carb. If you are a bbq sauce fan, you have to try G. Hughes SmokeHouse SUGAR-FREE BBQ Sauce. It has one carb in a tablespoon, but you only need a small amount to add some flavor. In this low carb Keto BBQ Cheeseburger Zucchini Boats, you need one cup of BBQ sauce.
Carbs In This Recipe
The carbs in these BBQ Chicken Zucchini Boats are not based on Huges Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce but a regular bbq sauce. The carbs are much lower using the sugar-free sauce.
There are 16 tablespoons in a cup. This recipe serves six servings. If you divide six into 16, you get 2.6 carbs per serving for the bbq sauce. In other words, if you check carbs in bbq sauces, it will be hard to beat G. Hughes BBQ Sauce. It will be challenging to beat its taste.
My Love For Pizza

The following recipes are a few samples of the pizza recipes I have made and wrote about on my blog. You can whip up a delicious pizza in no time, which makes them an easy weekday meal.

Keto-Friendly BBQ Chicken Pizza
Pizza is not a Keto diet-friendly food. It is loaded in carbs, especially if you eat a thick crust pizza. To make my favorite BBQ Chicken Pizza Keto-friendly, I substituted the pizza dough for zucchini and the bbq for a low carb bbq sauce. Results From Keto Diet
My husband has lost over 70 pounds. However, I found out this weekend that my nephew, Daniel, has also lost over 70 pounds too on a Keto diet. I am so very proud of both of them. I have not done as well, but I am still trying, and I do not plan on quitting until all the weight is off.
Most Importantly, Secret to Staying On A Keto Diet
Find Keto recipes your entire family will enjoy. Here are a few of my favorites. See my favorite low-carb recipes below.
Keto Chicken Taquitos
As I mentioned above, I saw my nephew, Daniel, this past weekend. We discussed Keto recipes. Since Daniel has been on a Keto diet, he has been cooking and experimenting with new recipes. He has lost over 70 pounds doing this. He not only told me about his Keto Chicken Taquitos, but he made them for me to try. They were fabulous and flavorful.
Daniel is so good with my special needs son, Caleb. Since Caleb looks up to him and loves to cook, Daniel invited Caleb to join him in the kitchen to share his secrets while baking Taquitos. Caleb loved every minute of his time with Daniel in the kitchen. I am so proud of Daniel. He works extremely hard at a full-time job plus goes to college full time, and he still made time for Caleb. He is a special young man with a beautiful heart for Gold.
Instructions For Keto Chicken Taquitos
Firstly, Daniel starts the Taquitos by baking cheddar cheese in circles on a sheet pan until melted and crispy around the edges. Secondly, He removes the cheese from the oven. Next, before the cheese cools, he added chicken and his secret seasonings. I think it had some chili powder and cayenne pepper in them. You could use taco or Fajita seasoning too. The final step is to roll the cheese and chicken up into Taquitos before the cheese cools. Once cool, the taquitos were crunchy on the outside and extremely tasty. They would make a fabulous Keto snack or lunch anytime.
My son, Caleb, is in the red shirt. He was so excited to help his cousin cook.
