From my Instagram: Chicken and Vegetable Sheet Pan Dinner - Keto Friendly

Easy peasy - throw it all on a pan and roast. I posted this on my Instagram story today as I was making it - thought I'd pop it up on the blog quickly tonight before heading to bed to read myself into oblivion.

Amounts are dependent on how much you need, how much you want and yada yada.  Change up the vegetables too.  We are low carb, sugar free so although I'd love to have potatoes, we don't regularly eat them so I substituted turnips and radishes.  Broccoli is good in this - as is cauliflower.  I love it with tons of onions - but carbs and husbands mean little to no onions so I used some green onion tops.

Chicken and Vegetable Sheet Pan Dinner

Chicken thighs - bone in
Brussels Sprouts
Green onion tops
Bacon, cooked and crumbled
Avocado Oil
Salt and Pepper
Kinders Woodfire Garlic Seasoning or whatever seasoning you like


I used about 4 T butter, 2 t garlic, minced and some salt and pepper - mixed together and spread on the chicken.  Then sprinkled with one of my current favorite seasonings that I find myself putting on almost everything... Kinder's Woodfire Garlic. 

Clean and trim the turnips and radishes.  Cube.  I chose to soak the turnip cubes for an hour or so in a mixture of heavy cream with some salt and a little water, in order to draw out some of  the 'bite' so they would be more like potatoes. The sprouts were halved and put in a Ziploc with real bacon pieces, the mushrooms, green onion tops and radishes.  Add about 2-T avocado oil, some salt and pepper and let it marinate while the turnips soak.

Drain and rinse the turnips.  Add to the veggies.  Massage the bag to cover everything with the oil and seasoning.  Pour onto your baking sheet.  You can line it with parchment or foil if you wish first.  Then top the vegetables with the chicken.

Put into a preheated oven at 425 degrees and bake for about 40 minutes.  When the chicken is done and everything is golden, you can serve as is - or if you like the chicken extra crispy (we do) I flip the chicken pieces over onto another pan and place them under the broiler for a couple minutes.  When they are as crispy as you like, take them out and serve them with the veggies.
