Island Baked Chicken Thighs

ketogenic diet baked chicken recipeSince starting the ketogenic diet back in November, I am constantly trying new recipes. I have also been known to create quite a few as well. This is one special dish that I made for my family recently. They were begging me for a succulent, juicy chicken dish. So, I had to oblige because, well, I’m mom!

If you have ever been to the Caribbean, you will recognize the flavors in this recipe. Full of flavor, the spices help to bring the taste of the islands home. Plus, everything about this recipe is completely acceptable for those eating Keto, Paleo, Whole30, and low carb. Win, win!
