High protein Chicken Carbonara





I’m absolutely sold to this chicken carbonara recipe! ⁣ ⁣ I love Italian food, but all the butter, oil and cream make it often high in calories. So I tweaked a healthy alfredo recipe that I found Showmetheyummy.

And it turned out fantastic: dreamy creamy and delicious! ⁣ ⁣ This recipe is super simple, packed with flavor, very creamy and has almost 40 g (!) protein per portion. Add pasta or shirataki noodles and you’re done. Enjoy!⁣ ⁣ Macros (per portion, ½ of total)⁣
