My grill has been getting a workout this last couple of weeks, because the oven in the house we are renting leaks heat out of it like a sieve and there is no exhaust fan in the kitchen. It’s going to be problematic this summer when it really starts getting hot outside, and I’ll have to be really strategic with my baking times for new keto recipes over the next few months.
The good news is, this means tons of new keto grilling recipes coming your way – and probably a LOT of keto ice cream and no bake dessert recipes as well. I’m pretty sure I won’t get any hostile emails complaining about this – but then again you never know.
First up in the IBIH Summer Grilling Series (I figure if I name it something official sounding it makes it more legit and less like I’m just trying not to die of heat stroke) is this delicious keto Chicken Souvlaki recipe.
Greek in origin and flavored with lots of lemon, garlic, and fresh oregano, this keto chicken souvlaki is everything you want in an easy chicken dinner. You don’t have to grill it (it can be baked or seared in a hot cast iron pan) but I love the complexity and layer of flavor that the slight char from grilling adds to it.
And of course you can impress your friends and family with gorgeous grill marks for the win.
And if you want to make this Keto Chicken Souvlaki even easier to execute, don’t even skewer it – just throw the marinated chicken breasts on the grill and then slice to serve after the fact. Easy peasy…
This keto Chicken Souvlaki recipe is deceptively simple – but loaded with flavor from the marinating time. It’s perfect to throw together in the morning before work or school, then when you get home just toss it on the grill for a few minutes each side and dinner is served.
The yogurt sauce takes literally a minute or two to make and complements the chicken perfectly – but honestly if even that feels like too much work, this keto chicken souvlaki is delicious on it’s own.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m all about keeping it simple and fast in the Summertime especially, because it leaves more time for us to spend relaxing and hanging out with friends on the dock.
Also it leaves us time to go fishing after dinner, because the Hungry Dudes and I have a fierce competition raging over who can catch the biggest fish this Summer. So far Hungry Jr. is winning with a nice small mouth bass. I just spend an ungodly amount of money beefing up my tackle box with some fancy new lures though, so I’m optimistic that the title will be mine. I’ll keep you posted.
As a side note, if we catch some decent panfish I’ll post some recipes here for my fellow angling enthusiasts. And yes, they will probably be grilled. :/
