How to make Low Carb, Keto-Friendly Chicken & Broccoli (Recipe)

Low Carb Keto Chicken and Broccoli Recipe

This week we are cooking up another delicious dinner recipe from Sugarless Crystals: the ultimate Keto-Friendly Chicken & Broccoli. This recipe is simple, delicious, and pairs perfectly with a side of cauliflower (or more broccoli!). The secret is in the sauce. Let's get cooking!


Keto Chicken and Broccoli Recipe


  • 1 pack 4 chicken thighs
  • 2-3 bunches broccoli
  • 2 stalks green onion
  • 1/2 cup Heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil to cook with
  • salt and pepper for thighs


  1. wash and cut up broccoli and green onion and salt and pepper chicken thighs
  2. using tablespoon of oil, saute chicken on medium until outside skin is crisp and golden. Both sides. Chicken doesn't have to be done on the inside it will finish cooking later
  3. remove chicken from pan and pan from heat leaving juices in pan. Add in heavy cream, butter, shredded mild cheddar, lemon juice, green onion and 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  4. turn on medium heat until it begins to smoke right before a boil and add chicken back in then lower the temperature and cover
  5. Now before covering for full flavor in broccoli you can add in now. But the broccoli will be really soft by the time the chicken is done. If you want crunchier broccoli wait about 10 minutes of covered chicken cooking then add into chicken and sauce and recover
  6. Continue cooking until chicken is done. Simply take a fork and knife and check for doneness or thermometer. Allow to cool a little then serve
