31 of the Best Low-Carb Chicken Recipes

Chicken is the ideal healthy protein. It’s easy to prepare, it’s super delicious, and it’s versatile! You can serve it up in a number of ways, and while Chicken and Mushroom Pasta is always a tasty idea, sometimes you might want a dish that’s a little lighter on carbs. That’s why we put together this list of easy low-carb chicken recipes that will help to expand your repertoire of chicken-focused meals.

Now, there’s really no exact definition of what “low carb” is, but we chose these recipes that place more emphasis on the protein and fat macros than on carbs. So if you’re trying to follow a low-carb diet, or maybe even looking for keto chicken recipes, these low-carb chicken ideas — all of which have 20 grams of carbs or less — can fit right into your plan. Enjoy dishes like our delectable Lemon Garlic Chicken Thighs, an out-of-this-world Chicken Piccata recipe, and not one, but two, healthier takes on fried chicken.

So break out your air fryer and your Instant Pot with confidence, because you’ll want to try all of these delicious and creative ways to whip up a low-carb chicken dinner or lunch. Whether it’s grilled, braised, pan seared, or cooked low and slow, you can’t go wrong with these recipes!
