Keto Cinnamon Crunch Chicken Thighs

These deliciously tender Keto chicken thighs make a great low carb lunch or dinner option. Our Keto chicken recipe is prepared with skinless and boneless chicken thighs, ground almonds, crunchy pecans, warming cinnamon and beaten egg. The chicken is coated in the beaten egg, then a layer of crunchy cinnamon breading before being oven baked until crisp and golden.

Can I Use Different Nuts?

We have used chopped pecans as they perfectly complement the sweet and warming cinnamon. If preferred, you could use an alternative Keto-friendly chopped nut. Macadamia nuts or walnuts would make a great substitution. Simply use in the same quantities and as directed. Please be sure to adjust your macros to account for any changes made to the recipe.

Serving Suggestions

Our sweet and crunchy Keto chicken thighs make a great protein base for your lunch or dinner. Perfect served with a side of roasted low carb vegetables. Or why not try with our Keto maple balsamic roasted sprouts with pancetta? This can be found in our sides section along with an array of delicious alternative low carb options.

    Soooo good! Great easy fall meal. Didn’t think cinnamon would be good on chicken.

      This is my favorite CM recipe! I’ve made it 3 times. I triple the recipe and get a value pack of thighs so I can have lunch in the freezer for over a week!
