How To Make Whole30 + Keto Cajun Chicken Thighs
This recipe is so super simple to make. You season the thighs on both sides with my homemade cajun seasoning. Which I love because it is all clean ingredients and whole30 compliant.
Like all of my chicken recipes, this gets a great crust thanks to the cast iron skillet. After it’s seared, I finish cooking it in the oven. Ready in under 30 minutes!
If you don’t have thighs on hand, you can swap in chicken breasts as well!Print
1.5 tablespoons cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons avocado oil
Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
When your skillet is warm, add in the avocado oil.
Sear the chicken thighs skin side DOWN for 3-4 minutes, until crispy and golden. Flip, and transfer to the oven to finish cooking until the thighs have an internal temperature of 165ºF, about 10-15 minutes.
Rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm.
Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for 5 days.
Keep an eye on the heat of your cast iron skillet. You don’t want it to get too hot or it will burn the spices. Keep it over a gentle, medium heat.
