Chicken is definitely my favorite source of protein. It’s yummy, versatile, and generally inexpensive. The one downside is that pretty much every chicken recipe that looks good to me is loaded with carbs. Or, at least, every chicken recipe that shows up randomly on the newsfeeds of my social media accounts. Regardless, in my attempt to keep a low-carb diet, I usually just end up eating chicken with… chicken. And seasoning and veggies, of course. Which is fine for a few days (or weeks…) in a row. But after a while, it can get pretty boring. So, after some hunting, I’ve found some great recipes to switch up my meals. If you, too, are sick of eating plain old chicken, you’ll love this list of 13 Low Carb Chicken Recipes. It’s full of recipes so delicious that you won’t miss the carbs at all!
