From a crispy spicy chicken to a sweet rich fudge and soft cookies, here's our collection of low carb recipes for this issue. Now go get cookin'!



Mustard Baked Crème Chicken

This crunchy succulent chicken is great both hot and cold! It makes good use of the marriage of traditional french crème fraîche and a good English mustard. Yes, if you can't find either, you can substitute sour cream and a good brown mustard. Not sure what crème fraîche is? See definition below.

  • 1/2 cup Crème Fraîche
  • 2 medium sized chickens, cut into portions
  • 1/4 cup prepared English mustard
  • 3/4 cup Keto Crumbs - Original Flavor
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 Tablespoons butter
Mustard Baked Creme Chicken Combine the Crème Fraîche and mustard in a small bowl. In a second bowl, mix the Keto Crumbs, herbs and seasonings. Coat the chicken pieces with the mustard mixture.

Roll the chicken in the crumb mixture. Place the chicken pieces in a single layer in a large, shallow baking dish and drizzle melted butter over each piece. Bake at 350°F for one hour, or until the chicken is golden brown and juices run clear when tested with a skewer.

Serves 8 - 3.8 carbohydrate grams per serving.

Crème Fraîche (pronounced "krehm FRESH") is a matured, thickened cream that has a slightly tangy, nutty flavor and velvety rich texture. The thickness of crème fraîche can range from that of commercial sour cream to almost as solid as room-temperature margarine.



Green Beans with Bacon and Almonds

  • One 16 oz package frozen French style green beans, thawed
  • One 16 oz package bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
Green Beans with Bacon and Almonds Fry bacon, draining off all fat, but leaving bits in the pan. Add thawed green beans and heat through, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add bacon and almonds, and heat another 5 minutes.

Makes 4 servings — 3.9 grams of carbohydrate per serving.





Cream of Salmon Soup
This soup offers a rich, delicious "chowdery" taste. Want it even richer and thicker? Whisk a couple of egg yolks into the cream before adding!

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped celery
  • 2 Tablespoons onion, chopped
  • 1 (13oz.) can chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (14-oz.) can Pink or Red Sockeye Salmon
    OR 1 can Chicken of the Sea Boneless, Skinless Salmon
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • Pinch of fresly ground Cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
Cream of Salmon Soup Sauté celery and onion in butter until tender.

Add chicken broth and water and bring to a boil. Drain salmon, (if using regular canned salmon, remove bone pieces and skin,) and flake with a fork. Add salmon, black pepper, Cayenne pepper, and parsley flakes to broth. Return to a boil; then simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cream.

Garnish with more parsley flakes or with chives.

Serves 6 — 2.8 grams carbohydrate per serving.



Refrigerator Nut Fudge

Are you a chocolate lover? Try this sugar free yet decadent-tasting recipe for a lovely, occasional treat, packed with healthy walnuts and a hint of cinnamon.

  • 2 Tablespoons soy flour
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Diabetisweet
  • 4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 packets Splenda
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
Refrigerator Nut Fudge Prepare an 8 inch square baking dish by greasing it with butter or spraying it with a butter flavored non-stick spray. Set aside until ready to use.

In a medium sized sauce pan, whisk soy flour with heavy cream until the mixture is smooth. Add the butter, cream cheese, Diabetisweet, chocolate, and cinnamon.

Place the pan over medium heat until the mixture becomes warm enough for the chocolate and cream cheese to begin to melt. Lower the heat to the lowest possible setting.

Continue melting the ingredients for the fudge, stirring as necessary. When the mixture is melted and smooth, add the vanilla and packets of Splenda. Taste the fudge. If it is not as sweet as you like, adjust the sweetness, by adding sweetener of your choice.

Beat the fudge for a minute or two with a heavy spoon. Add the nuts and thoroughly combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared 8 inch square baking dish. Spread it evenly into the baking dish, using the back of the spoon to smooth the surface. If the surface looks a bit greasy with the melted butter, press a paper towel into the surface to remove the excess.

Cool the dish to room temperature. Refrigerate for several hours or until chilled and firm.

Remove the fudge from the refrigerator. Cut into 1 1/2" squares.

Makes 36 (1 1/2 inch) squares of fudge.   Each square is 4 grams carbohydrate.
