Keto Chicken Dinner Recipes
You can use different cuts for these recipes and experiment to create something you like. I’ve found that with chicken you can normally deviate a bit from the recipe and it will still turn out wonderful.
For example, even if the recipe uses a whole chicken breast, you could also get away with smaller cuts or even shred the chicken. Of course, this is entirely up to you and you can use your own discretion when trying out these recipes.
