So, I've got a confession – I've been holding out on you. I've had this Marry Me Chicken recipe up my sleeve for ages, but life's been a whirlwind, and I just never got around to sharing it on the blog.

You might have caught a glimpse of it on Facebook or in our newsletter if you're in the loop. I've been all over the place with app updates and everything, and didn't want to leave you hanging without this recipe.

Here's the scoop: I tweaked the classic Creamy Italian Chicken recipe a bit. Instead of just cream, I tossed in some cream cheese. Why? Because it makes the sauce perfectly thick and oh-so-creamy – just the way I like it.

And guess what? Now, after all the photo editing and prep, this recipe's not just in our private Facebook group or the newsletter – it's in our app too!

So, when you're in the mood for something that's a total crowd-pleaser, give this recipe a go. It's simple, it's delicious, and hey, it's finally here!

How To Serve Marry Me Chicken Recipe

Alright, you've made the Marry Me Chicken, and the aroma in your kitchen is probably making your stomach rumble. Now, what to pair it with? Since we're keeping things on the lighter side (hello, low-carb life!), I've got some killer side dish suggestions that'll complement the creamy goodness of this chicken without weighing you down.

First up, creamy cauliflower mash. Whip it up smooth and buttery, and it'll soak up that amazing sauce like a dream. This Cheesy Cauliflower Mash is my go-to.

Not feeling the mash? How about some cauliflower rice? It's super simple to make and adds a nice texture contrast to the creamy chicken. Plus, it's a great way to sneak in an extra serving of veggies. This Gremolata Cauli-Rice would be the perfect option.

And for those of you who love your 'pasta,' zucchini noodles (aka zoodles) are the way to go. They're light, they're twirly, and they do a fantastic job of making sure every bite is loaded with that delicious sauce.

No matter which side you choose, you're in for a treat. Each one brings something special to the table, making your Marry Me Chicken meal not just satisfying but seriously memorable.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
