Keto Grilled Chicken

This Low Carb Grilled Chicken is perfect for an easy weeknight meal. It works perfectly with a side of grilled vegetables. I like to make it for meal prep so that I've got it on hand to throw into salads for lunch. If you are pressed for time, you can marinate the chicken for as little as half an hour, but I recommend going for at least six hours if you can.

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Grill, covered, for 7 minutes. Flip and brush with the reserved marinate. Cook for about 7 minutes more, until the meat reaches about 155 degrees. (It will continue to cook as it rests and reach the recommended 165 degrees.)
