Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu
Skip the breading and pile on the high-fat toppings for a keto cordon bleu that’s easier than the original, and, dare we say, even better.
Braised Chicken Thighs and Legs With Tomato
Chicken thighs and legs combine with tomato, cumin, ginger, cinnamon and a few other flavour boosters for a dish with universal appeal. It’s a keto dinner that’s not only delicious, but budget-friendly.
Chicken Under a Brick with Fresh Herbs
Spatchcocked chicken cooks faster and more evenly than a whole bird. In this keto-friendly dinner recipe, the chicken gets weighted with a brick to ensure the skin gets extra crispy while in contact with a cast iron pan. Try it on the BBQ during the warmer weather.
Indonesian Coconut Curry Chicken Wings
Slow Cooker Thai Red Curry Chicken Soup
Warming chicken soup takes a page from Thailand in this curried keto masterpiece (just avoid the sugar in the broth). Vegetables, chicken and curried coconut milk combine in a slow cooker for a meal that’s ready when you are. Cauliflower rice is the ultimate pairing, though the soup is perfect on its own.
Chicken Thighs with Creamy Mustard Sauce
Higher in fat, chicken thighs are cooked until golden and paired with a rich and tangy creme fraiche mustard sauce. If a recipe, like this one, has caught your eye, but calls for a large amount of wine, replace it with stock to keep your meal keto.
Spinach and Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Breast
Healthy greens and savoury mushrooms are rolled into tender, juicy chicken breasts for a keto main. Pair with a lemony avocado salad for extra fat and flavour.
Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breasts
Cream cheese and bacon make eating a flavourful keto chicken dinner simple. Add a vegetable side such as roasted asparagus or sautéed kale for some low-carb fibre and vitamins.
Sautéed Chicken Breasts With Fresh Herbs and Ginger
A simple sauté brings out the best in chicken, here, paired with refreshing herbs and warming ginger. Keto-perfect served on its own or with your go-to low-carb, high-fat side.
