Keto Teriyaki Chicken Thighs with Broccoli

Share to save for later!

Do you love Japanese food? If so, you’ll love this tasty Teriyaki Chicken.

Traditional teriyaki chicken is not strict keto-friendly due to soy sauce, brown sugar, vegetable oil and corn starch.

To ketofy it, we simply use coconut aminos, erythritol (or monk fruit), olive oil, and xanthan gum.

The main ingredient is chicken thighs – very tasty and juicy cut of meat that many people like.

Chicken is one of the main sources of protein on any diet. Any dish will look more beautiful and appetizing if there is green color in it, so we added broccoli. In addition, it contains proteins and very few carbohydrates, which is very important on a keto diet.

With basic salt, pepper, and seasonings and garnishing with sesame seeds, you’re ready to have a tasty dish to treat your friends and family.
