People who take a Keto diet to lose weight know that there’s a bunch of chicken recipes for that diet. That’s good since you’ll never want for the taste of meat. However this means that it typically becomes easy to become tired of chicken. This dish will blast that worry out of your mind. It is cooked in an excellent sauce of blended ingredients of different flavors to make sure that each from your first until your last bite will have you smiling in delight.
Though not essential it’s also a good idea to serve the chicken with a side of riceor Cauliflower rice. That added side will ensure filled stomachs all around, as making the yummy taste of the chicken more distinct.
Dry the chicken with tissue papers. Season Chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a 10 inch or larger skillet on medium to high heat. Add the chicken and cook until both sides are brown, which will take about 5 to 7 minutes per side. Set aside the chicken on a plate.
Turn the heat down to a medium. Place the butter, garlic and lime zest. Cook by stirring for 1 minute. Stir in the lime juice. Place the chicken back in the skillet. Reduce the heat to a weak simmer and cover the skillet. Standby until the chicken is cooked and registers as a 165ºF on an instant read thermometer, which is about 2 or 3 minutes.
Stir in the Cilantro and pour some of the sauce over the chicken. Serve as is or with rice.
