Chicken thighs make a delicious, nutritious and inexpensive low carb keto meal. And there are so many ways to cook them! Here are 30 great ideas for your eating pleasure.
I’ve been totally digging the chicken thighs lately. And by lately, I mean pretty much forever. And by forever, I mean since I was able to chew and swallow solid food. My freezer is almost never without a few packs of chicken thighs to feed my hungry family. Chicken breasts are so passé, my friends. Now that the low fat era is dying a slow death (too slow, in my opinion), the much-lauded boneless skinless chicken breasts are on their way out too. And good riddance, I say!
What’s so great about chicken thighs over chicken breasts? Well, better taste for one thing. And a lower price tag. And, now that the low fat era is dying its slow death (too slow, too slow!), we can see that the nutritional value of chicken thighs is much better. Skin on or off, that darker meat has more fat (yay!), including plenty of saturated fat (double yay!) and dietary cholesterol. Oops, I saw a few of you pause there, kind of getting freaked out at the cholesterol thing. See? The low fat era still has a few remaining tentacles (die, you beast! DIE!).
Well, I for one am happy to eat those less expensive, more flavourful chicken thighs. I’ve created a number of my own recipes for them lately and I also rounded up some of the tastiest looking low carb chicken thigh recipes I could find. Grab a pack of thighs today and enjoy!
