The best low-carb and keto chicken recipes
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, with or without the bone in, 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.

Drumsticks and wings
How to cook chickenWhen 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.
