Your new favorite high protein muffin recipe is here, meal prep edition! These low carb Chicken Muffins are packed with protein, super easy to make with simple ingredients, and come with unlimited variations.
Take out a bowl big enough for all of your ingredients and whatever kind of chicken you’re using, I prefer using canned chicken.
If you’re using chicken breast or similar just make sure it’s cooked and chopped up into small pieces.
Add right into your bowl your chicken (1 large drained can for me), 2 large whole eggs, 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of lemon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of bacon bits, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/4 cup of fat free cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of chopped celery, and 1/4 cup of chopped red onion.
Don’t have access to fat free stuff? Don’t worry, reduced or full fat really won’t add that much fat to the recipe.
Mix all of those chicken muffins mix ingredients together. I like using my hand(s) to do this!
Coat a muffin pan with some non-stick cooking and evenly distribute your mix into your muffin spots with a spoon. I made 6 today.
You can make your muffins however big or small you want them. Keep in mind that cooking times may change depending on the size of your muffins.
Bake your chicken muffins on 350F/176C for around 30-35 minutes or until there’s a brown tint to them.
Pro tip? Easily change this recipe up by adding in other chopped vegetables, sauces, seasonings, cheeses, meats, and so on! Let us know your favorite combinations for these in the comments below.
