Step By Step Procedure For Beginners
Prepare The Chicken
Chicken breasts can look gorgeous on plates but in its actual form, it’s not that pretty because of its uneven mass.
So make sure you squeeze chicken with the help of base of your palm until it gets uniform like this.
In our next step
Take half the lemon and just squeeze out all the juice on this chicken breast now this lemon juice will add flavor but more importantly, it’ll tenderize the chicken.
Add Little Garlic, Salt,pepper and Thyme
Add single pod of garlic
Remember, you don’t want to overdo it with the garlic you just want it to be an underlying flavor this isn’t Indian cooking.
And then add a little bit of salt and pepper according to your taste and finally, you can go with a little bit of thyme.
Mix It Up With The Chicken
Now just mix it all up very gently make sure the lemon the time the salt gets all over the chicken and 20 minutes later your chickens ready to be cooked if you want to save up on the calories you just grill this in an oven or a nonstick pan but we’re on a ketogenic diet so its better to prepare it on a cast-iron skillet.
Place the Chicken over hot cast-iron skillet
Now go in with a tablespoon of ghee because I’m an unhealthy mofo.
I’m a keto and I can afford all these calories. After about two minutes of being on a super high flame your skillets gonna start smoking and it’ll be ready and at that point, you can go in with the chicken breast.
So you got to hold it from one end and very carefully place it on the pan while it’s facing away from you.
Drop it away from you otherwise the oil is going to splatter and you’re gonna get yourself burned so let it rest on one side from one minute about 90 seconds about 60 and 90 seconds later and then flip.
After some time you will get a gorgeous color like this and do remember that you can only get this gorgeous color when your pans that hot.
Remember the internal temperature of the chicken is super hot and it’s going to continue cooking and while
To prepare Keto Green Take some Extra virgin Olive Oil ,Garlic and Thyme in a Low Flame Crush Pod
Now when the garlicky herby oil is ready you can go in with just a bit of cabbage. The cabbage takes a little longer to cook so you got to make sure you kind of stir-fry it before putting in the next ingredient, keto friendly superfood spinach.
so after still frying the greens for about five to ten minutes. This bed of goodness is ready, you can serve up the keto friendly tag-team like this.
