  • salt and pepper

  3. Season the chicken and fry over medium heat for about 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Add more butter and put the broccoli in the same frying pan. Fry for another couple of minutes.

This keto dish can be cooked with other low-carb vegetables such as zucchini, asparagus, broccoli and spinach. Feel free to use your favorite spices to give this dish more flavor–some paprika, herbs, or onion powder are all yummy options.

    I've Never tried to fry chicken without oil and only butter (Southern Baptist Family....we fry with a Lot of Oil)....this was amazing actually I wish I had taken pictures because it actually looked great...surprisingly good. Only issue is the cook tjme for the chicken makes no sense.,.chicken just takes longer to cook thoroughly than 10 mins....other than that....Yummy Goodness.

    Can I get clarification. Does this one meal contain 10oz of chicken? Im following a meal plan and it has me buying 21oz chicken but uses over 30oz so Im a bit lost.

    Donald, any recipes with that portion can be eaten the next day for lunch. I'm also following the meal plan.

    Next time I'll use fresh broccoli as my frozen and then boiled stuff got a little mushy with all the moving around. I may also cook these separately; roasting the veggies and frying the chicken thighs. Other than that, it was an OK recipe. Much better with wasabi mayo on the side of the chicken :)
