Keto Chicken and Chive Cakes #keto

These Keto chicken chives cakes are big on flavor and light on carbs. Fry up a batch for a surprisingly easy five-ingredient appetizer or serve with a side for a satisfying entrée. However you choose to serve up these succulent chicken patties, expect clean plates at the end of the meal!

Simple Serving Suggestions

  • Weeknight Dinner – Serve alongside make-ahead Keto creamy cauliflower mash or Keto cauliflower white rice for an easy low-carb entrée that doesn’t skimp on flavor or yumminess.
  • Leftovers for Lunch – Serve over greens with a bright dressing for a light salad that revitalizes leftovers and leaves you feeling satisfied after lunch.
  • Simple Yet Elegant – Serve with your favorite Keto noodles on your best plates for a date night dinner that is as easy as it is impressive, not to mention tasty!
  • Easy Entertaining – Instead of forming four small patties, form eight mini patties. Serve on a platter with toothpicks for serving for a simple appetizer that would be equally at home at a garden party or a game day party.
