How to Make Whole30-Keto Greek Chicken Thighs:
With this recipe it’s all about this easy to whisk together marinade! Non-dairy yogurt, lemon zest, fresh garlic, and various spices combine to make a tender chicken that is savory and packed with flavor. You can marinate for 30 minutes or all day if you have places to be and people to see. Then just set on a rimmed cookie sheet and roast for 35ish minutes. Look at how beautiful this chicken is!
Why Thighs? And Can You Use Chicken Breasts?
I get asked these questions frequently. I prefer thighs to breasts because the low fat content of breasts make them less flavorful more likely to dry out during cooking. But yes, you can use breasts for this recipe, just make sure they are small, basically the size of thighs or the cooking time will have to change.
If You Prefer Grilling….
