Have you run out of keto baked chicken recipes that excite you? You will love this chicken and ham recipe that is baked in the oven. And if you are looking for a dish to serve to friends or family, this keto baked chicken stuffed with ham and cheese recipe will check all the boxes! Simple, tasty, and sophisticated looking when served. Here’s why I like this recipe so much:

Make-ahead keto chicken recipe

If you have been doing keto for any amount of time, you know it can take some prep work and planning. I love this recipe because you can prepare it a day or two ahead. When you are ready just take it out of the fridge and pop it in your preheated oven! Sometimes we do our food prep on Sunday. We have this on Monday and our Spicy Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken recipe Tuesday and Wednesday (making a double batch).

No Keto Side Needed

This recipe is filling and doesn’t require a side dish to be served with it. Of course, if you want a side we’ve found our Roasted Broccoli Drizzled in Parmesan and lemon Butter Sauces or Parmesan Encrusted Zucchini Wedges go well and add a little color to the plate.

Tips when making keto baked chicken recipes

  1. KitchenAid Gourmet Meat Tenderizer
    KitchenAid Gourmet Meat Tenderizer

    If the recipe says to pound the chicken out, do it. It makes it even so it cooks evenly. We use the KitchenAid Gourmet Meat Tenderizer. We prefer this one, even though you could use a basic wooden one. We find it cleans off easier and is more sanitary.

  2. Always check the internal temperature of the chicken or at least that it is no longer pink.
  3. Do not overcook your chicken. Otherwise, it will be dry.
  4. Let the chicken stand. If you let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving, the juices go back inside, making the chicken moist.
