Low Carb Grilled Chicken Recipe

I recently returned from a glorious, week-long vacation in Montana. Scott and I went to enjoy our retirement home and some much-needed Fall weather. Although I’ve often worried about feeling isolated in a small town, I couldn’t have been more wrong. In fact, we had dinner guests almost every night while there. Besides eating a lot of good food, I might have even eaten huckleberry pie and ice cream a time or two. But now that I’m back, it’s time to clean up my act, and cut back on those pesky carbs. Enter this low carb chicken recipe. Marinated in lime and ginger, this chicken is reminiscent of Asian-style chicken, but without all the sugar. The chicken is so flavorful, you’ll never miss it!

Serving Suggestions

I love slicing this low carb grilled chicken across the grain and serving it over a green salad. For a completely low carb meal, this chicken pairs perfectly with low carb jalapeno poppers, or low carb brussel sprouts. However, if you’re not worried about carbs, I would serve this with my creamy coconut rice recipe. Another idea would be to chop it up and roll it in a low carb tortilla with some lettuce, feta cheese, tomatoes, and scallions. I can go on an on with various ideas on how to enjoy this chicken, but I’m sure you have other things to do, so off you go!
