Creamy Pumpkin Chicken

Serves 4

If you’ve got a can of pumpkin puree in your pantry, this is your recipe! We combined staples such as onion and garlic with chicken and smoked paprika and then stirred in creamy classic pumpkin to create this warm and nourishing dish. Be sure to use unsweetened canned pumpkin to keep this meal keto.
