Chinese Chicken Salad is usually one of my go-to meals when dining out. It is tasty and filling, but not Keto friendly. That is why I love this recipe for Keto Chinese Chicken Salad. I can enjoy all of my favorite flavors at home (which saves me money – bonus!) and stay on program. This salad makes a great lunch or dinner. If you are serving this salad to people who are not following the Keto program, feel free to serve with crunchy chow mein noodles, as I have pictured below.
