Keto Chicken Thighs

Cooked in a creamy mustard sauce

When it comes to food, Youtube has always been a source of inspiration because of the number of food videos. I chanced upon this Munchies video for mustard braised chicken which inspired this recipe. It’s super simple and delicious. I previously had made pork chops in a creamy mustard sauce, which is fairly similar. I’ve mentioned before that chicken in supermarkets are normally sold without skin so I had to make a quick trip to my butcher to get some nice skin on chicken thighs.

This recipe is also amazing for meal prep and you can easily just double or even triple it. Throw in some steamed broccoli or spinach with it and you’ve got yourself a well balanced Keto meal. Anyway enough jibber jabber, lettuce cook.

Fish and Pork will do too!

If I am being honest this is a rather basic recipe and the protein is easily replaceable. You can swap out the chicken for pork or fish. Like I said I made a similar dish with pork chops and this would work well with some salmon with nice crispy skin. This recipe can also be made vegetarian. The most obvious choice would be paneer as the protein but you could also use something more hearty like thick eggplant slices, maybe cauliflower steaks or even zucchini. Most of my recipes are meant to be tweaked to suit your dietary needs. Bon Appitite.

    Hello sahil, well I live in a remote area in Palghar which is north of vasai and virar. So its quite hard to find meats like Chicken breast and chicken thighs which are deboned or boneless (you know this normal bitchers just cut the meat into pieces any how in our great India) can you provide me any online exporter from mumbai who can manage to send this types of cuts. Since your recipies are out of this world, these only blend when i cook it the same way you cooke like for example taking a full breast and cooking it. On the other hand the butchers meat which is pieces takes out all the fun of cooking it. So can you guide me or post anything that could help me find this types of cuts in meat. Thank you.

      Hi Abdul, there are some online stores like seafood and meat co etc but I don’t know if they deliver to Palghar. However what I can suggest actually is just to buy the full chicken and learn to cut it yourself into breast, legs and wings. It’s actually not hard at all, there are many very good youtube tutorials for it. Even I do this many times. You can use the legs, thighs, wings and breasts for my recipes and then the carcass/bones you can boil with in water for about 60 minutes to make chicken soup/stock. So many uses are there 🙂

    This is gorgeous! The husband made this for dinner last name but, and although the kitchen looked like a warzone when he was done, the dinner was totally worth it. Thank you SO much! This works perfectly as written 🙂
