This recipe is one of the most popular keto videos on the FlavCity YouTube channel. The chicken stew is a one pa wonder that is full of flavor and very easy to make. The key is adding the right spices, searing the chicken, and adding lots of flavorful goodies to the braising liquid.
I wanted to give this chicken stew recipe a Moroccan twist, so I added a bit of cinnamon and cloves to the spice rub on the chicken and braised the chicken in lemon slices, green olives, and herbs. The result is a chicken stew that is monster on flavor and really only take 45 minutes from start to finish.
Keto Chicken Recipes
This recipe for keto chicken has an absurd amount of flavor, it starts with the spice rub and then the cooking liquid. But make sure you allow the chicken thighs to sit at room teperature with the spice rub on for 20-30 minutes, otherwise the chicken might cook unevenly.

Cauliflower Rice Recipes
This golden turmeric rice with coconut milk could be the best cauliflower rice recipe I have ever made. I mean, just look at that brilliant color y’all! The key is to cook the turmeric in the hot pan so it blooms the essentials oils before adding the coconut milk. Make sure to use full fat coconut milk and be ready for the color to turn int what I call an edible mandala, it’s so darn beautiful.
Resist the urge to buy pre-made cauliflower rice from the store, especially frozen cauliflower rice, as the texture is too soggy. All you need to do is grate a head of cauliflower on the largest setting your a box grater. This will give you the ideal texture for the cauliflower rice, and you will avoid paying for a bag of shredded stalks, which is what they sell at the strode 😉
How To Cook Chicken Thighs
This is one of the most common questions I get asked. Never put cold meat into a hot pan, allow the chicken thighs to come to room temperature for 20-30 minutes with the spice rub on. This will create the most beautiful crust on the chicken thighs, I mean just look at the photo above.
Also, make sure to pre-heat your pan, preferably cast iron, for a good 2 minutes before putting the chicken thighs in, you want the chciken to start sizzling and getting crusty immediately. How long to cook chicken thighs is a much easier question tan breasts, because the thighs have more fat, they are more forgiving. You need to stew the chicken in the cooking liquid for 35-40 minutes, you can cut a piece t make sure it is cooked though, but they wont dry out becuase of the moist cooking liquid.
Look at the colors on that final dish, it just makes you so excited to be meal prepping chicken keto recipes. This keto recipe will last 5 days in the fridge, and you will be so darn excited to eat it every day!
