Quick & Easy Keto Low Carb

I really needed a meal that would leave me feeling full and energized. I didn’t plan this. I literally just looked at what I had in the fridge and figured something simple out. It’s not revolutionary but it works.

At the end I calculated my MACROS with the Carb Manager app and boom! PERFECT MACROS!! What are the chances of that? Pretty good actually. Once you get the hang of keto, you can totally rock perfect MACROS.

Crispy Chicken Thigh Recipe

Ever since I was a kid I absolutely loved friend chicken. Something about the crisp with the chicken was just amazing. Fast forward to adulthood where I’ve learned how fried food can be the worst for you 🙂

So, here’s a recipe for Crispy Baked Chicken Thighs, no breading included. This recipe is super easy and is ketogenic and low carb friendly! Bonus, my kids loved them & my husband even took cold leftovers to work and enjoyed them!

Recipe

  • 10 Chicken Thighs, skin on & bone-in
  • 4 TB Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • 21 Seasoning Salute, Trader Joe’s (Italian Seasoning Optional)
  • Cayenne Pepper, optional (not shown in video)

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees F. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels, and on a lined cooking tray coat them with olive oil, skin side up. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, & additional seasonings. Place in oven for about 60 minutes, longer if you like the skin very crispy and the chicken more well done.

Serve with sautéed veggies, mashed cauliflower, zucchini noodles, and more! Use whatever you have in the house and enjoy a simple and easy dinner night at home.
