Low Carb Italian Chicken With Optional Pasta

Low carb Italian Chicken is low Carb, gluten free and delicious on its own or add pasta for those that want it.

Our family has enjoyed Low Carb Italian Chicken for many years. Using jarred sauce makes it very easy. My big Presto electric skillet makes it even easier with plenty of room to cook and ease of washing. I make the chicken and sauce with pasta on the side for those who aren’t low carb. It is delicious even without the pasta. When I add mozzarella or parmesan cheese, I do not even miss the pasta. Really, I don’t!
