Keto Chicken Thigh Recipes

Chicken thighs are ah-mazing. It took the keto diet for me to discover this important fact of life. Pre-keto, I was all about chicken breasts. But chicken thighs are so flavorful and, as I soon discovered, much more forgiving than chicken breasts. They’re harder to overcook, easily retain their moisture, and are a better bargain than chicken breasts.

Even better, the fat in chicken thighs is monounsaturated fat, aka the “good fat,” which can help raise your good HDL cholesterol and lower bad LDL cholesterol*.

*Although traditionally considered the “bad fat,” not all LDL cholesterol is bad, which you can learn about in this great book!
