Garlic Butter Chicken Thighs
Who said delicious has to be time-consuming? This mouthwatering chicken is juicy, bursting with aromatic garlic and smoky paprika. Red pepper flakes bring just enough heat to enhance the chicken without overpowering it.
Kids and family members won’t even know this is a low-carb recipe! They’ll just be asking for seconds and filling up on this delicious dish.
Keto Chicken Thighs
If you ever see chicken thighs on sale, grab them! This recipe is the perfect way to cook them. I love making keto chicken thighs because you can reuse them later on in the week in lots of different ways.
Shred the chicken up and make a jalapeno popper chicken salad out of it. Or chop it up and use it in a low-carb chicken soup. This is definitely a recipe that you can use over and over again.
Best Chicken Thighs And Asparagus
Use fresh asparagus in this recipe. You might be able to get frozen to work, it won’t have the same crispy texture.
Frozen asparagus comes out really soft. It works, it’s just not nearly as good.
Remember to remove the woody stems from the asparagus before you cook them. I usually trim about 2 inches off them before I add them to the skillet.
How To Use Chicken Thighs
Since this recipe is so low in carbs, feel free to serve it with as many side dishes as you want. I think it will taste amazing with some keto garlic knots. There is no such thing as too much garlic at dinner!
Add some cauliflower rice to the side and you have a very filling meal.
Don’t worry if you aren’t a fan of cauliflower rice. You can make cauliflower mash instead. It has lots of the same flavors, just a different texture.
If you have kids or family members that are not on the keto diet, you can serve them white rice so that it looks like everyone is eating the same thing.
Skillet Chicken and Asparagus
You won’t believe it, but this entire recipe only has 2g net carbs in each serving! I like to make recipes like this when I know I had a particularly carb-heavy day.
You can afford to eat more than one serving and get completely full.
Chicken and Asparagus One Skillet Meal
Let this be your sign that it is time to invest in a cast-iron skillet. I use mine as my main cooking dish. I love to cook meals and then keep it in the oven to keep it warm. (This also doubles as a way to protect my kids from grabbing it off the stove).
I love how meals taste when I use my cast iron skillet, and I know you will too!
