This Keto Greek Chicken Skillet is packed with Mediterranean flavors like lemon, olives, tomatoes, and artichokes!
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, feel free to reduce the amount.
Keto Greek Chicken Skillet
- 4 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
