Browned chicken with creamy greens for keto / low-carb dinner

Ingredients that you need:

  • 1 lb. (450 g) chicken thighs, boneless but skin on
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. Italian herbs
  • 2 cups dark leafy greens
  • 2 tbsp. coconut flour
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat a large skillet on a medium-high setting. Add two tablespoons of coconut oil to the pan. Season both sides of the chicken thighs with salt and pepper while the oil heats up. Brown chicken thighs in the skillet. Fry both sides until the chicken is cooked through and crispy.

While the thighs are cooking you should start the sauce. To create the sauce melt two tablespoons of butter in a sauce pan. Once the butter stops sizzling, whisk in two tablespoons of coconut flour to form a thick paste.

Whisk in one cup of cream and bring the mixture to a boil. The mixture should thicken after a few minutes. Stir in the teaspoon of Italian herbs.

Remove cooked chicken thighs from the skillet and set aside. Pour the cup of chicken stock into the chicken skillet and deglaze the pan. Whisk in the cream sauce. Stir the greens into the pan so that they become coated with the sauce.

Lay the chicken thighs back on top of the greens, then remove from the heat and serve. Divide chicken and greens up into four servings. Enjoy!
