Keto Greek Chicken Skillet

Keto Greek Chicken Skillet

This Keto Greek Chicken Skillet is truly the meal of my dreams, it’s got that crispy chicken skin, the briny olives, and all that saltiness is balanced perfectly with the freshness of the bursting tomatoes and lemon.

If you’ve been following Cast Iron Keto for a while you may already know I used to have an aversion to olives, but I’ve done a complete 180° and they are now one of my favorite foods, and you can tell by the amount in this fantastic one skillet dinner. Of course if you aren’t as big an olive fan as I am feel free to reduce the amount.

If you’ve been on the keto diet for any length of time you already know it’s hard to deny how well it works, yet I see news articles everyday about how a top cardiologist or new study warns of the dangers of the keto diet. These articles almost always come around to say a Mediterranean style diet is the healthiest way to go, but what if it wasn’t so cut and dry? What about a Mediterranean Keto Diet, even the naysayers would have a hard time disputing Keto is awesome, and this recipe is a great and easy way to incorporate that way of eating into your routine.
