Keto/ Low Carb Honey Garlic Chicken

Super easy and delicious Honey Garlic Chicken, that’s low carb, keto friendly, sugar-free and gluten-free.

Ready in under 30 minutes and packed with flavor.

This Honey Garlic Chicken is one my most favorite recipes ever! Why?  Because it’s super simple and extremely addictive. You just can’t beat simple. So, if you’re new to keto, low carb or gluten-free cooking, this Keto Honey Garlic Chicken is probably a good recipe to start with because it’s so simple and I promise you’re going to love it. 

This super easy recipe can be made using chicken breast or boneless thighs, but I prefer boneless thighs because they stay juicy and tender. If you’re using chicken breasts, I suggest pounding them thin so that the chicken is same thickness all over. And skip the chicken broth in the sauce, because chicken breast cooks faster and you don’t want to dry it out.

I like to remove the excess fat from the pan, add in the sauce and let the chicken cook while the sauce thickens. This will ensure that the chicken stays juicy. I love serving this chicken over a bed of cauliflower rice, and steamed broccoli.
