Keto Pesto Chicken Bake with 3 Cheese & Prosciutto

Keto Pesto Chicken Bake with 3 Cheese & Prosciutto

Cheese, chicken and cauliflower are solid keto staples, and are on my shopping list every week. Today, I decided to use up some different cheeses I had in the fridge and created this Keto Pesto Chicken Bake!

Using 3 different cheeses, and combining with my Celery Leaf Pesto, this dish becomes super decadent. You can definitely use a store bought pesto as well, but making it is so easy! If you haven’t tried it already give it a go.

I used a little bit of blue cheese as it adds a real richness and complex flavour to the dish, but feel free to leave this out and substitute with something else. Camembert would be my choice, as it’s a great companion of prosciutto.
