Easy to Make Low Carb Mediterranean Chicken In a Skillet

I have been trying to make dinner for my family every night so that we can all sit and eat one meal together. Since my husband works late, he usually gets left-overs. Yet, I still want to make easy, healthy meals that both my kids and I will enjoy. The key word is “easy,” so skillet chicken recipes which only use one pan appeal to me. It makes the cleanup that much easier. The other key is that the recipes are low carb and keto friendly. Luckily, my children don’t really notice the difference, so I make what I want to eat and then serve it with a side of pasta for them. I was searching high and low for low carb chicken recipes, and I found few that appealed to me, so I came up with this one. If you are looking for keto dinner ideas, you need to try this Low Carb Mediterranean Skillet Chicken recipe.

This super tasty recipe is basically chicken in a skillet (I love cooking chicken on the stove) yet with a Mediterranean twist. Lately, I am all about Mediterranean food recipes. There is something about the combination of garlic, tomatoes, olives, lemon and feta that I find really delicious. This also makes the perfect keto dinner recipe.
