Low Carb Stuffed Chicken Recipe Substitution Options
All substitution options are a 1:1 substitution unless noted otherwise
Chicken breast: Any cut of chicken that you can slice and fill can be used (chicken thighs, chicken fillets, etc.). Skinless chicken breasts can be used also.
Greek Yogurt: Cream cheese or sour cream can be used instead. Vegan sour cream could also be used or a Greek style plant based yogurt, you may need to decrease the quantity of yogurt because plant based ones typically have a higher moisture content.
Onions: Any type of onion can be used or 1 tsp of onion powder
Cheddar Cheese: Mozzarella cheese, Italian cheeses, Parmesan cheese, blue cheese, and goat cheese are both good substitutes, but you can use any cheese or cheese mixture you’d like. You could also use dairy free or plant based cheddar cheese.
Ranch Seasoning: Salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning can be substituted. If you don’t have store bought Ranch Seasoning you can make your own using this recipe! Fun tip, many generic Ranch Seasoning brands are dairy free!
