Keto Mozzarella Chicken: One Skillet Recipe

Create this Keto Mozzarella Chicken recipe in one skillet. It is low carb and full of protein and healthy fats. Add your favorite side dish and you have a delicious easy family meal.

Creating recipes that are low carb are easier than you think. This is a one skillet recipe that is easy to clean up and cooks on top of the oven and then inside to bake.

Just the kind of meal that busy moms and families are looking for. I will be adding steamed broccoli and cauliflower as a low carb side dish.

Mozzarella Chicken One Skillet Meal

Ingredients

  • Olive Oil Extra Virgin
  • Chicken Thighs boneless
  • Italian Seasoning divided
  • Himalayan Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Butter unsalted
  • Chicken broth organic
  • Cherry tomatoes quartered
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Mozzarella Slices

Cooking Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • Heat 1 TB olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat
  • Rub chicken thighs with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste on both sides. Transfer to hot skillet. 
  • Cook for 5 minutes per side, until the chicken develops a golden crust. Remove from heat and add butter, chicken broth, and cherry tomatoes. Top each chicken thigh with a slice of mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with red pepper flakes and remaining Italian seasoning. 
  • Transfer skillet to preheated oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for several minutes. 
  • When serving spoon some pan sauce and garnish if desired

Give your recipe extra color

You will get a very colorful dish by using multi-colored cherry tomatoes and adding some fresh herbs on top. (Use tomatoes sparingly as they aren’t really keto-friendly, but they add lots of color and interest to the dish.)

The red pepper flakes give it a little kick while the melted mozzarella cheese adds a smooth taste. This recipe is big on flavor and so easy to make.
