Keto Grilled Chicken with Peanut Sauce

One of the best things about this keto grilled chicken with peanut sauce is that it is an incredible summer recipe that is not only delicious and tangy but great for a stress-free keto lunch six days a week. Even though this dish looks and tastes great when it is still sizzling hot, it is equally amazing when served cold on a salad. Plus, the peanut sauce  serves as an amazing dressing on the salad.

Try to use chicken thighs for this recipe as they are the best for a high-fat low carb diet due to their high-fat content. It is best to get chicken thighs that still have skin on them as it helps in making sure that they are not completely dried out during the grilling process.
So, without further ado, let’s get started:

Ingredients for Chicken:

  • 6 skin-on chicken thighs (or any other cut as preferred)
  • 1 Tbsp Lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar-free fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Soy sauce (Wheat Free)
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar-free rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Avocado oil or any other light oil
  • 1 Tsp Minced fresh garlic
  • 1 Tsp Minced fresh ginger
  • 1 Tsp Ground coriander
  • 1 Tsp Granulated erythritol sweetener
  • 1 Tsp Cayenne pepper

Ingredients for Peanut Sauce

  • 1/2 Cup Sugar-free almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1 Tsp Minced fresh garlic
  • 1 Tsp Minced fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbsp Lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar-free fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Chopped fresh jalapeño pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar-free rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Water

For the chicken combine the fish sauce, rice wine vinegar and all of the other ingredients in a large bowl and start whisking them together. Add chicken pieces in the mixture and marinate them. Refrigerate the chicken in the marinade for 24 hours and take them out of the refrigerator at least 2 hours before cooking. Make sure you preheat the grill to get things started. Now, grill the chicken per side for about 7-8 minutes and if you have a thermometer then check the temperature as well as it needs to read between 160-165 degrees to be safe.  On a side note invest in a quality meat thermometer!  Food poisoning is no joke!

For the peanut sauce, blend all the sauce ingredients and serve it with the chicken to you and your family!  They’re going to love it!
