Fresh Keto Chicken Breast Salad

Breast. Salad. Ever.

Okay, so this may look like an ordinary recipe post about some keto chicken recipe with dressing and lettuce and whatnot… but this actually a big deal. This is a landmark post. A true shining moment in the history of this website. Well, hopefully.

Some indeterminate handful of recipes ago I decided to ramble on for several paragraphs about the introductions of recipe cards. Best thing since sliced bread, right? Well, I need to fine-tune the color scheme, but… yeah. Big moment.

This is another one of those posts. Don’t worry, the recipe cards aren’t going anywhere! In fact, I’m introducing another new element that will surely catapult straight into the stratosphere of online keto recipes with the likes of the awe-inspiring recipe Gods themselves. I’m looking at you, Delish!

I’m sure, seeing as there is a gigantic billboard-sized video at the top of this post, you have already guessed the new element that is being introduced. That’s right — videos!

I’m so freaking excited for this! Video is the king of content on the web right now and I don’t see that going anywhere anytime soon. Not to mention it’s just kind of the best thing ever as far as recipes go. It will also make my life on Instagram and Pinterest approximately 37.5 times easier. I may even start a Keto Kat YouTube channel!

Anyway, it’s going to be great. I’m not entirely thrilled with the quality right now, but there’s so much room to grow so I’m sure the improvement over time will be significant.

The biggest difference is a lot of recipes are likely to become video-dependent and will probably lend to a new format where most of what’s going on with a recipe will be a video, a very brief description here where my ramblings usually go, and the recipe card.

Don’t worry, I will still have plenty of posts where I go off about some random childhood story about cinnamon buns or wax poetic about how good chili is when it’s cold out… there will just be a lot of posts without now, too. Gotta streamline this sh*t!

Anywayyyyy… Here’s the recipe card!

Fresh Keto Chicken Breast Salad

  • Author: Kat Lawson
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


This gorgeous, flavorful chicken salad is the epitome of a simple seasonal keto dish. Fresh, juicy and hearty enough to keep you full until dinner! (or dessert!)


  • 4 oz chicken breast
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 large leaves of romaine lettuce, rough chop
  • 510 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 medium cucumber
  • 1/4 medium yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1/2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 180 F.
  2. Place your raw chicken breast in a bowl and prepare to flavorize it! Sprinkle in your olive oil, paprika, cumin, oregano and s+p. Toss your chicken around in this mixture until it has a nice even coating on it.
  3. Line a small baking tray with parchment or foil, slap your chicken on there and pop that bad boy in the oven to bake it at 180 for 20-25 minutes.
  4. Veggie time! Rough chop your romaine lettuce, halve your cherry tomatoes, slice up your cucumber piece and your onion piece as well. Lay everything down on a large plate or bowl to serve as the beautiful emerald nest for your chicken.
  5. When your chicken is finished take it out and be sure to let it rest before cutting!
  6. While you rest the breast we can make our dressing! In a small bowl mix your tahini and lemon juice together with 1/2 tbsp of water and really stir it up nice and good.
  7. Add the chicken, dressing and some minced parsley on top for the final touches and voila!
