Want to make an easy keto dinner recipe in one skillet and in under 30 minutes? You're in the right place!

This is my take on TikTok's viral Baked Feta Pasta tweaked to fit a keto lifestyle. As the recipe suggests, there is no pasta in this recipe. Instead we're using spinach, which is ultra low in carbs and high in electrolytes, and chicken, which is a fantastic source of protein.

You can also make my original version with keto-style pasta which uses palmini noodles and no meat, making it a tasty vegetarian keto option.

We all have different dietary needs so it's only natural that you may need to adjust the macros in this recipe. You can make any adjustments directly in the KetoDiet App by cloning any of the recipes from my blog and customizing them to fit your macros and preferences.

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.
