In the mood for a keto chicken dinner? There are so many options and low carb chicken recipes to choose from, but I’ve collected 20 delicious and unique keto chicken dinner recipes that are sure to fill that craving!
From Italian flavors to grilled, to chicken curry, each of these recipes is low carb and keto-friendly. You’re sure to LOVE one, or maybe even all!
These dishes are perfect if you’re looking for easy meals or simply want to add a twist to your meal rotation. I include some possible side dishes and a few options if you’re mostly wanting to eat chicken wings!
What keto chicken dinners will you find?
You’ll find a range of chicken dinners. Some of my favorites are Pressure Cooker Whole Chicken and Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Breast with my cilantro lime sauce. Both are no-fuss, meaning that they require just a few minutes of prep.
Why gather up low carb chicken dinner recipes?
Chicken is one of the most popular meats. It’s widely available and really cheap. So, if you’re trying to test out easy, keto-friendly recipes and/or stay within a budget, having a list of keto-friendly chicken dinners recipes is important.
Do these recipes use all types of chicken?
You’ll notice that almost all of these keto chicken dinner recipes are made using chicken breasts. Personally, I prefer chicken breasts for most dishes because it’s sturdy when you bite into it.
Some say that chicken breasts are too dry. And, chicken breasts definitely become dry when they are overcooked.
Chicken thighs are more forgiving if you, say, tend to forget that you’re cooking! Even on super high heat, it takes a while for them to lose their moist texture.
So, besides the chicken wing dishes, if you’d like to swap the chicken breasts in these recipes for chicken thighs, then you can.
Looking for keto chicken wings recipes?
This chicken dinner collection includes one of my most popular wings recipes, but the rest of the dishes do not include wings.
If you’re looking for options with just wings, then you should check out these keto chicken wings recipes. That post includes dishes like my Keto Asian Sticky Chicken Wings and Ghost Pepper Buffalo Chicken Wings.

What side dishes go with chicken?
If you’re meal planning, then it’ll be important to have some great side dishes to go with these dinner recipes.
When I’m having chicken for dinner, I tend to keep my side dishes super simple. Some ideas are: a Caesar salad with my Creamy Caesar Dressing, Keto Creamed Spinach, or this easy Creamy Broccoli Salad with Bacon.
