30-Minute Easy Slow Carb Roast Chicken

Slow Carb Roast Chicken

This recipe is ridiculously simple and very tasty.  A perfect inaugural slow carb roast chicken for a bachelor or bachelorette new to cooking.  So easy and so well received that my friend’s non-cook boyfriend asked me to teach him to make it.  This dish is great served with green beans and roast veggies.

**Note: I like crispy, caramelized veggies so I will sometimes stir more often, but this isn’t necessary.

Homestyle Slow Carb Lentils


This is a simple lentil recipe I came up with to utilize the leftover carrots, celery and onions I have from making veggie stock, chicken stock or roast chicken.  I call these “homestyle lentils” because they have a savory, wholesome roast chicken flavor.

Feel free to experiment with different quantities and seasonings.  I don’t normally measure, just throw in whatever leftovers I have laying around.  I’ve included approximations to get you started.

You can use canned or fresh dried prepared in this way.  If you use dried lentils, about 1 cup dried will do.  Just cook them before beginning the recipe as it assumes you are using cooked lentils.

Arugula Salad With Grilled Chicken, Walnuts, White Beans, and Tomatoes

Arugula Salad With Grilled Chicken, Walnuts, White Beans, and Tomatoes | slowcarbmealplanner.com
Here’s a really great slow-carb friendly lunch recipe. You can use it for dinner too, but people get really keen on having a bunch of lunch recipes (in my own life there really isn’t much difference between the two), so I’m calling it a lunch recipe.

It’s got everything you want: protein, veg, legumes, and some healthy fat. Good portions of each, as well.

I like arugula because it’s kind of spicy. It takes an otherwise bland-tasting lettuce and kicks it up a notch.

This was thrown together (as you can kind of tell from the photo) at work, and all I did was buy pre-cooked chicken strips with the rest of my ingredients. Each ingredient works really well, and as you eat it, it feels hearty.

And watch for a whole bunch of your co-workers to comment on how healthy you’re eating and how good it smells.

Tandoori Chicken Skewers with Broccoli and Cauliflower Couscous

Tandoori chicken with broccoli and cauliflower couscous

Indian food is one of my favorite kinds to eat on slow-carb. I got the idea for the “couscous” one day, and I was really quite pleased (and slightly surprised) at how it turned out. I used a food processor to grate it, and the texture was lovely. Not quite as grainy as couscous, but that could also depend on how much you cook it.

For the tandoori spice, be careful to read labels when you buy it. The first one I looked at had wheat and sugar in it. The second only had the spices.

So here’s one of my favorite slow-carb diet chicken recipes:

Rich and Decadent Slow Carb Lamb Chops with Mushrooms and Herbs


This  great meal for a special occasion or entertaining when you want to pretend you aren’t on a diet, this recipe is “lick the plate” delicious.  Seriously, I’ve had guests ask me if it’d be rude for them to lick their plates!

I initially started making this recipe because I wanted to find a way to use all the fresh herbs I was growing on my balcony.  Fresh is always best and more flavorful, but you can certainly used dried as well.
