This recipe brings you all the rich and bursting flavors of an Italian summer in a nutritious, tasty, and keto-friendly package. Beautifully succulent baked chicken breast pairs with flavorsome olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil, topped with a refreshing Italian-style dressing. Serve cold over baby spinach leaves for an instant lunch-time hit all-round.
Being served cold makes this dish wonderfully versatile. If you start prepping early, it’s an excellent dinner or lunch option, and also makes for a perfect weekend meal prep dish for a week full of delicious lunches. And it even travels well, making it the ideal choice for a pot-luck gathering or picnic in the park.
It’ll be a favorite at any gathering too: tender chicken breast beautifully absorbs the intense and rich Italian flavors of sun-dried tomato and olives. The dish is perfectly rounded out with a light, delicate dressing of garlic and balsamic vinegar and the refreshing taste of chopped basil leaves. We recommend serving as a salad over baby spinach, but this chicken would pair just as perfectly with cold zucchini noodles or another base of your choice.
Not only is this recipe mouth-wateringly delicious, but it’s also packed full of nutrition. Chicken is a hugely protein-rich meat—over 50 grams of protein in one breast!—and sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and spinach bring an abundance of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and healthy fats to this dish. This is a recipe that prioritizes your health and doesn’t compromise on taste. For a fresh and flavorsome Italian-inspired lunch, look no further!
