Keto Chicken Dinners with Chicken Breasts
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.
If the chicken is battered with regular wheat flour then it won’t be low-carb. You can swap low-carb flour, use a keto-friendly wheat flour (if you’re just focused on carbs), or make crispy wings without flour.
It depends on the ingredients used. For example, some chicken brine includes sugar, which is absorbed into the chicken to help it stay tender. My air fryer whole chicken uses simple spices and doesn’t have any significant amount of carbs.
