While eating Keto meals is different, it's not difficult. I modified this recipe from my original quick lemon chicken meal. While I never shared it on my blog, it is a recipe that I go to often. The only ingredient I added is the clarified butter. It added a buttery flavor to the chicken which my son just loved. If you try it, you can go without the butter if you do not want it. Here is how I made this simple Lemon Dijon Chicken Thighs weeknight dish. Feel free to follow along or add additional ingredients.
Lemon Dijon Chicken Thighs Recipe for Any Weeknight Dinner
2 lb chicken thighs (boneless and Skinless)
1 TBSP Herb De Provence
1 TBSP Dijon Mustard
2 Cloves garlic minced
3 TBSP olive oil and 1 Tbsp Clarified Butter
1 whole lemon juice (squeezed)
- Add to a gallon baggie, chicken, herbs, dijon, olive oil and lemon juice. Marinate 20 mins or overnight for more flavor.
- Heat skillet with 2 TBSP of Ghee, let melt.
- Add the content of the bag into the skillet. Situate in the skillet, so they are not overlapping.
- Cook covered for 15 minutes. Then remove lid for five more minutes to reduce the liquid and then brown.
Here's the final dish. I served it with sauteed broccoli rabe, and everyone devoured it. I sauteed the broccoli rabe in olive oil with garlic powder. You can use fresh garlic minced as well if you prefer. I found it took longer to marinate than it did to cook this recipe. And, that is my kind of recipe. How about you? Do you prefer marinated recipes?
