This Keto Muffuletta Chicken is a delicious low-carb recipe that's packed with flavor from antipasto, salami, ham, and provolone!
Muffuletta sandwiches are a New Orleans staple, almost as much as a Po’Boy or a big bowl of gumbo. But what really makes it unique is its utilization of Italian flavors in a city known for its French/Cajun influences. This Keto Muffuletta Chicken takes those flavors and spins it into a low-carb recipe that you're going to love.
Trying to emulate New Orleans cuisine on the keto diet can be difficult because of its heavy use of fried foods and red beans and rice, but this recipe is an excellent low carb alternative with all the flavor you know and love from the big easy.
When shopping for olives for this recipe and others it’s a good idea to check out the nutrition label because some brands are absolutely loaded with sodium and while we love salt, it can be too much of a good thing if left unchecked.

I used a store bought olive relish in an effort to keep things simple.

Hi, we don't remember the exact brand but any olive salad will work.

Thanks for this recipe. Living in the big easy is definitely a challenge with the Keto diet. Especially when this is all you know. Thanks again. This will be added to the rotation.

Oh man, Lauren and I were in New Orleans for a work conference a few years ago. At the time we weren't eating low carb but were gluten-free and it was almost impossible to find a great restaurant. We found a few but we definitely didn't get to try any New Orleans classics. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
