When you are on the keto diet, everything that you eat from breakfast to dinners should be high-fat low-carb. Because you know, keto diet is the diet which requires you to eat a high amount of healthy fats, and low carb foods, containing a moderate amount of protein.
So does that limit your eating options? Absolutely not! The options still remain limitless. You just need to have the right ingredients. And these ingredients do involve cheese, meat, bacon, cream, and butter, which means you absolutely don’t need to compromise in the taste.
Talking about keto dinner recipes, they are no different. I have formed a list of delicious keto dinner recipes with the mix of right ingredients that will look after your taste buds. Like the other keto meals, these keto dinner recipes are amazing and will keep you on your fast weight-loss track.
I have mentioned the nutritional values so that you can keep a check of your fat intake as well as the carb and protein intake from a particular recipe. If you fall short of your daily fat intake, these keto fat bombs will help you cover it up.
Chicken Avocado Casserole
Avocado is one of the healthiest fruits and chicken is the most popular meat which is very healthy as well. Avocado provides you with a lot of fats while the chicken is a food rich in protein. If you enjoy these foods by themselves, imagine how good they would be together when combined in a casserole.
If you have a busy week ahead, then cook it once and enjoy this meal the whole week. Check out this recipe here.

Keto Butter Chicken
Butter chicken is the most loved chicken recipe by the Indians. Most of the Indian cuisines are irresistible, but when we talk about Indian meat dishes, butter chicken is the dish that comes first in the mind of people who enjoy Indian food. One different thing about this cuisine is the inclusion of turmeric (dang, it’s so healthy) as an ingredient in many of the recipes.
The Indian variety of spices will give it a taste that your tongue would have never experienced before. It is called butter chicken because butter is an important ingredient in this chicken. That was obvious, but still. You can substitute butter with ghee(clarified butter) to get a healthier experience. Enjoy the dish alone, or enjoy it with cauliflower rice.

Beef And Broccoli Bowls With Sunshine Sauce
Finally, a recipe containing low carb veggies called broccoli. You should include some veggies once in a while even when you are on the keto diet. Veggies are on the go with keto diet till you restrict yourself to the low carb ones such as broccoli, which is a zero-calorie food as well.
Honestly speaking, I had no idea about the importance of sunshine sauce before I landed on The Cast Away Kitchen for this recipe.

Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken
This recipe sounds good, right? The same goes for the taste. I don’t why but the creamy garlic sauce reminds me of the taste of the garlic bread with cheese dip of dominos. That is something I can’t resist.
The sauce in this recipe has the taste of garlic, spinach, and tomatoes with a creamy texture and some cheesy flavor. Now, don’t interpret that such a delicious recipe will consume a lot of time to make. It requires a maximum of 30 minutes. Yes, you read it right, just 30 minutes!

Another casserole recipe. If you are a fan of cauliflower and casserole, then you must include this in your list.
Cheese and cream are not separated from this keto recipe and the topping of bacon leaves no stone unturned. Don’t forget to use the hack given on Low Carb Maven (the source of this recipe) to get a fluffy cauliflower mesh.

Had too much of meat in a while? If you want to shift to seafood, Hey Keto Mama has these pretty looking salmon cakes for you. Though it has some pork rinds, its quantity is meager. You won’t mind that right?
Salmon is a very healthy seafood as it is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids which are a boon for the cardiovascular system. Salmon tastes good and when combined with Sarayo sauce and avocado cream sauce, could there be any better dinner treat that is quick to make? This one hardly requires 15 minutes. So check out it here.

Greek Lemon Chicken Kebabs
Whenever I hear the term kebab, instantly I imagine interestingly cooking something mouthwatering on a barbeque grill in the garden on a cold night. Because this food on a stick is perfect for the season.
Chuck the season and the garden. Have these keto greek lemon chicken kebabs on a Sunday night with your family for a satisfying dinner. Now that doesn’t mean, you can’t have it on the weekdays. That is equally good.
