Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Pounds Chicken Thighs boneless
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning divided
  • Himalayan Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter unsalted
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth organic
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 8 oz Mozzarella Slices

Instructions

  • 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 pre-heated oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and let chicken rest for several minutes. 
  • When serving spoon some pan sauce and garnish if desired. 

Notes

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.
