Keto Chicken Salad | Fajita Style!

Keto Chicken Salad is one of my go-to quick lunches and meal preps! I always have a good quality mayo on hand and some canned chicken so it’s easy to whip up in a pinch. However, doing the same recipe can get a little boring so I like to change it up from time to time, and that is where this fajita style keto chicken salad comes into play! It really doesn’t get better.

Easy Keto Meal Preps

Meal prep is the key to success in our household, but not just on a dietary level. Having meal prep in the fridge allows us to be more productive because food isn’t taking up space in our mind. Matt can eat at his desk and I can eat alongside Theo (our 8 month old son( on his play mat or while I feed him in his high chair. Some of our go-tos foor weekly meal prep are:

  1. Keto Chicken Casserole (easy and cheesy!)
  2. Air Fryer Meatballs: eat them on their own, pair them with a side of veggies or top a salad for a quick meal!
  3. Oven Baked Lemon Drumsticks (drumsticks are so underrated!)
  4. Keto Bread: this is Matt’s go to for making quick breakfast sandwiches or eating with some butter.

We consider anything great for meal prep if it will last in the fridge all week. If it won’t last more than a couple days it’s just leftovers haha. Let us know what you’re favorite meal preps are below in the comments secion.
