When you’re eating low-carb, having solid go-to recipes is super important, and we love relying on chicken for the high protein meals we return to again and again. Every once in a while, though, we like to shake up our routine and try something new. Avoid falling into your own mealtime rut with our 40 keto chicken recipes sure to become a part of your dinner rotation. These quick chicken dinners are low-carb, keto-friendly, and SO full of flavor. You’re sure to find a new dinner favorite for weeknights, special occasion meals, and beyond.

And don’t worry, these recipes don’t all rely on pairing chicken with cheese and bacon like a lot of keto recipes (though we’ve also got plenty that do!). We’ve instead focused on focused on combining chicken with our favorite low-carb vegetables and innovative sauces, like peanut, salsa verde, and garlic cream, to name a few. Serve your chicken with cauliflower rice or zoodles to soak up all that yummy liquid, and you’ll be in keto heaven.

When we want a comforting meal that we know will fill us up, we turn to curries and stews, like our keto tikka masala. Extra cold night? Turn to chicken soup (sans noodles) to warm your bones. Love takeout? We’ve got your Italian, Greek, and Asian faves, low-carb-style. We’ve even got fried chicken to scratch that fast food urge. Didn’t have a satisfying low carb morning, and want another chance? Try everything bagel seasoning chicken or chicken and waffles, and do breakfast for dinner.

Speaking of dinner, we’ve got more keto dinner and lunch ideas to inspire you too. And don’t forget dessert!
