An easy dinner inspired by New York City "Everything" bagels and classic scallion cream cheese spread. Chicken breasts coated in Everything But the Bagel seasoning and baked then topped with a quick and easy creamy, tangy scallion cream cheese sauce. Low carb, keto, paleo option.
Preheat oven to 400º F. Place chicken breasts top-down in a baking dish. 9x9" or larger. Using a pastry brush, brush surface of chicken with butter then sprinkle with salt. Don't use as much salt as you normally would, since most Everything But the Bagel seasonings have salt in them.
Sprinkle surface of chicken with half the Everything But the Bagel seasoning. Use tongs and carefully flip chicken breasts. Brush tops with the remaining butter, sprinkle with the salt and coat with the remaining Everything but the Bagel seasoning.
If paleo, you can use * ghee or a neutral oil like avocado or refined coconut oil. If dairy-free, use vegan butter or neutral oil. * dairy free cream cheese like Kite Hill * unsweetened plain non-dairy milk of choice Cooking Times for Chicken Breasts by Size * Small chicken breasts: 25 minutes * Medium: 30 minutes * Large: 35 minutes
I recommend buying wine from Scout and Cellar, especially for lower carb or sugar and the health conscious. There's no added sugar to these wines, and they're all much lower in carbs, calories, and sugar. For me, there's no headache or fogginess the next day!
This chicken recipe has amazing bagel flavors, so you can get away with a variety of wine pairings. I recommend:
