Keto Paprika Creamed Chicken Second

Chicken thighs, like all chicken, are high in protein and low in fat and carbs. They are also simple to cook and only need to be fried for 7 or 8 minutes on each side. We especially like chicken thighs because, unlike chicken breasts, they have a much deeper flavor. The main spice in this dish is paprika. Paprika is a fragrant spice that adds a lot of flavor to the dish and contains lots of antioxidants. It’s the perfect spice to cook with for people who love milder spices.

To make this tasty recipe, you first need to coat the chicken with the herbs and spices like garlic and salt and pepper and then fry them up until cooked through. All you need to do then is add the paprika, cream, and stock and let it simmer until thick and smooth. It’s as simple as that.

For this dish, we recommend serving with some delicious cauliflower, which you can serve whole or as cauliflower rice. It goes great with the flavors, and if you serve cauliflower rice, you can use it to mop up all of the delicious sauce from this dish. Make it today. It’s sure to become a new go-to dinner recipe for you and your family.
