Carnivore Recipe: Montreal Deviled Chicken
You are in the right place if you seek a healthy, delicious, and filling dinner recipe. I call it Montreal Deviled Chicken or Carnivore Montreal Deviled Chicken. Technically, this recipe is either carnivore or omnivore, depending on how you make it. The difference is in the seasoning, but you can make this with or without the seasoning. I will talk more about that in just a moment. I accidentally created this one night due to limited ingredients and a strong hunger pang. As it turned out, it was absolutely amazing. It is now a family favorite.
Let’s talk seasoning for a moment. There is some debate in the fad-diet community on whether or not herbs and spices are okay on the carnivore diet. This is because herbs and spices come from the plant kingdom. Some proponents of the carnivore diet suggest that you should avoid herbs and spices because of the potential issues related to their anti-nutrient ingredients, and some proponents say it is perfectly fine to use herbs and spices (in moderation and if you can tolerate them) because the small amounts used can act as a beneficial acute stressor.
Frankly, I don’t care what you do. At the end of the day, it is your body, and you need to do what is right for you. If the spices are a deal-breaker, then just use some salt instead. This recipe is delicious either way.
What You’ll Need
- Organic Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
- Hard-boiled Eggs
- Swiss Cheese Singles Slices
- Montreal Chicken Seasoning
- Milk (Optional)
- Salt (Spice Replacement Option)
Prep & Cook Time – Roughly 15-20 minutes.
- Step One:
- Dice up the chicken breasts into bite-sized cubes.
- Step Two:
- Option 1: Slide up the hard-boiled eggs into small bits.
- Option 2: Remove the yokes and pulverize them using a processor, and then slice up the white into small bits and set them aside.
- Step Three:
- Using a stovetop and a skillet pan, cook the chicken on medium-high. Stir as needed until entirely cooked.
- NOTE: You do not need oils. If you choose, butter is acceptable but is not necessary.
- Step Four:
- Once fully cooked, turn the stove to medium or low-medium.
- Step Five:
- Pour the contents of the pan into a strainer, drain the excess water from the chicken, and then place the chicken back into the pan.
- Step Six:
- Place the skillet back onto the stove and then add the sliced hard-boiled egg whites and yoke.
- Step Seven:
- Give the ingredients a slight stir to help warm the mix.
- Step Eight:
- Place the cheese on top of the mix and allow it to heat up a little before stirring. You will see the cheese become soft.
- Step Nine:
- Add the Montreal Chicken Seasoning (or salt) to your liking (I use quite a bit of either).
- Step Ten:
- Mix everything well until the mixture has turned yellow. You can add just a little bit of milk for an extra creamy texture. Now, it’s ready to serve.
Ratios and Portion Sizes
This meal is nutrient-dense and very filling. No side dishes are needed. The ratio is simple. One chicken breast, one egg, and 1.5 to 2 slices of cheese for each person served. Of course, if you are REALLY hungry, you might be able to push it to two servings for one person. Just be warned that this will keep you full for a VERY long time.
- Dinner for two: two chicken breasts, two hard-boiled eggs, and three or four slices of cheese.
