A super fast low carb chicken dinner that is a total weeknight winner! Using just one skillet, dinner is ready in 20 minutes!
Weeknights are crazy busy, and if you want to avoid the drive-through, or the take-out menus like I do, having a few easy to make, quick meals in the repertoire is crucial for a smooth evening. I love having a few low carb 30 minute meals in my repertoire, ready to just get in the kitchen and get dinner GOING!!
It’s also getting hot here, so spending a lot of time in my tiny kitchen in the heat is not my idea of a good time. I’m often in search of healthy low carb recipes since I waver off and on between wanting to eat allthefrenchfries and also wanting a smaller butt.
This light dinner is low carb, but you can feel free to carb it up with some buttered noodles, some mashed potatoes, or some rice if you must!A super fast #lowcarb #chicken dinner that is a weeknight winner! Uses 1 skillet & ready in 20 mins!Click To Tweet
Some VERY simple and customizable ingredients – don’t like green beans or asparagus? Use yellow and green zucchini. Add onions! Or leeks! Don’t have herbs de provence? (get some), sub italian seasoning, or another rub that you like. Making carb free dinners is super easy, right??
My homemade Tuscan Seasoning goes pretty well with this dinner! Have no chicken, but have pork or fish? Awesome. Switch it out.
I left the garlic out of this picture. But you forgive me, right?
This recipe is really more of a thought starter since it’s so changeable. I’d love to hear what combinations you come up with! Tag me on instagram (@kyleecooks) with your creations!
