Top 15 Keto
When you buy chicken, it’s often a better deal to buy a whole chicken and divide it into pieces yourself. Chicken breast is usually the most expensive part and also the leanest. We suggest leaving it in the store and opt for thighs instead. They often come cheaper, have more natural fat and therefore more flavor. If you can get pieces with the skin on, it’s even better! You’ll find more tips on how to cook chicken below.
Here’s our top selection of chicken recipes, there are casseroles, crispy alternatives and juicy wings. If chicken is your protein of choice, we hope you will enjoy our 15 most popular recipes and serve keto style.

How to cook chicken
When cooking poultry you need to make sure that the meat is fully cooked or you risk getting sick. To be on the safe side, it’s wise to use a cooking thermometer. When cooking chicken breast, you place the thermometer in the middle of the thickest part. When the temperature reaches 162°F (72°C), it’s ready.
When cooking a whole bird it’s usually best to place the tip of the thermometer right next to the bone in the thigh. Make sure it reaches 180°F (82°C) before serving it.
Like any other meat, poultry benefits from resting for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Another great thing about poultry is that you can serve it both for a week-night dinner or for a fancy dinner party. The recipes above will provide you with inspiration for both.
