Keto Chicken Bacon Pancakes Recipe
If you are looking for a recipe that is full of flavor, simple to assemble and offers all of the right nutritional statistics for the keto diet, then these chicken bacon pancakes are an ideal meal to have in your culinary arsenal.
With zero carbs, these protein-packed bites are a sure meal to keep you feeling great while being delicious at the same time.
Not Your Traditional Pancakes
What we know about the traditional pancake would encourage anything but ketosis. Usually, pancakes are associated with a lot of carbs and even more sugar, but this recipe is referred to as a pancake based more on the flattened form and simple pan-fried method.
By replacing all of the carb-heavy ingredients and substituting in products that are pure fat and protein you won’t have to worry about sacrificing your keto diet. Also, these little patties are a great meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a quick snack.

Protein Replacements Ideas
The best part about this straight-forward recipe is its simplicity. Once you have assembled the pancakes you will find them quick to make, and easy to clean up after, then you will be ready to make them again and again. Instead of being stuck with the same ingredients and flavors, it would be no problem to substitute in some new tastes.
The recipe itself calls for the use of chicken breasts, but that can be replaced with any of your choice cuts from the bird. Or, feel free to assemble them using turkey instead.
Bacon is full of flavor and I would happily place it in any recipe. However, there are many options to use in its place including ham or prosciutto. For something entirely different feel free to include some herbs or spices into the recipe.
Other Modifications You Can Make To This Recipe
The form of the pancake is used in this recipe because it is simple to shape and quick to fry up. But, again, you are not limited to this specific style. Like traditional pancakes, you can shape all sorts of designs to make dinner more fun for the family.
Additionally, you may choose to make the pancakes thinner or wider to adapt to your preferred texture. The recipe also works great if you wanted to make some flavorful meatballs to accompany all kinds of dishes.
It is important to note that if you are choosing to make the recipe thicker that it is cooked all the way through. Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 165 F (75 C). Feel free to finish the pancakes in the oven after you have allowed a nice outside texture to develop in the pan.
