Lasagna is one of my all-time favorite dishes, followed closely by chicken Alfredo, so before I went low carb one of the most popular recipes I made was my White Lasagna Rollups.

They were of course made with lasagna noodles, along with a sauce that used a rue for thickening so that meant they were a huge no-no for my low carb lifestyle.

But, once you have been low carb for a while you start trying to figure out how you can get those old faves in without blowing your carb count out of the water.

Enter my low carb version of Olive Garden's Alfredo Sauce (I used to eat this stuff by the bucket I swear), and Joseph's Lavash Bread in place of lasagna noodles. I have some of those in my freezer at all times now and use them for several different dishes like my Low Carb Beef Enchilada Rollups.

I almost always have shredded chicken in my freezer from meal prepping, but if not I can have the Mr. grab a rotisserie chicken at the store on his way home from work if I am feeling pressed for time.

This is a judgement free zone here so you do what you need to do to get dinner on the table.

Back to these rollups vs my regular lasagna rollups.

A traditional lasagna rollups contains about 32 carbs, and we all know that we don't eat just one right? So ummm ya, not very low carb friendly at all!

These rollups have 2 in a serving and are about 16 net carbs.

So you get 2 low carb rollups for half of the carbs of one traditional rollup.

I call that a win!!

HOW TO MAKE LOW CARB CHICKEN ALFREDO ROLLUPS



STEP 1
Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for a minute or two, then add the cream cheese and stir until melted.

STEP 2
Whisk in the heavy cream and bring to a bubble.

STEP 3
Reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or just until the sauce coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat.

STEP 4
Whisk in the parmesan cheese and season with salt, white pepper, and fresh ground nutmeg to taste.

STEP 5
Spread a couple of spoonfuls of the sauce into the bottom of a baking dish (I used a 13x9 pan).

STEP 6
Lay the flatbreads out and using a pizza cutter, or sharp knife cut them into 3-inch wide strips. You will end up with 12 "noodles"

STEP 7
In a large bowl combine the shredded chicken, ricotta cheese, parsley, eggs, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

STEP 8
Lay out the flatbread "noodles" and spread about 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons of the chicken mixture down the length of each "noodle".

STEP 9
Carefully roll the "noodle" and place seam side down in the casserole dish. Continue with the remaining noodles.

STEP 10
Thin the sauce with additional heavy cream if needed then top the rollups with the remaining sauce. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 40 minutes.

STEP 11
Top the finished rollups with chopped flat-leaf parsley.

FAQS ABOUT LOW CARB CHICKEN ALFREDO ROLLUPS


Can I make these Low Carb Chicken Alfredo Rollups ahead of time?
These rollups are pretty easy to make, especially if you have shredded chicken already made so I have never used this recipe in meal prepping. I would worry a tad about the flatbreads getting soggy so if you did make these ahead I wouldn't put the sauce on them until right before you put them into the oven.

Can I use a different protein in place of the chicken?
Great question! I haven't tried anything besides chicken but I bet that crab would be super yummy too!

How do I store the leftover Low Carb Chicken Alfredo Rollups?
I keep mine in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. The sauce can tend to make the flatbread "noodles" a bit soggy though. To reheat place them in an oven-safe baking dish and bake at 350 degrees F until heated through - about 20-30 minutes.

Last thoughts about Low Carb Chicken Alfredo Rollups


These rollups are one of the recipes I like to keep in my personal for when I am cooking for non-keto people, especially kiddos. 

My photographer and her family are not keto and neither are my kids, their significant others, or my grandkids and this recipe was a hit with all of them. 

It's not super fancy but it is tasty. 

I love to serve it up with a nice Caesar salad or these Italian Baked Zucchini and Tomatoes.
