Tips to make keto chicken skillet

  1. If your chicken breasts are too big and thick, you may consider cutting crosswise. If your chicken is too thick it may not cook properly. In addition, if you cook these too much, you will end up with way too dry chicken.
  2. If you are worried your chicken will be dry, soak it in a brine. To make a simple brine, combine 4 cups of water and some salt. Soak chicken in this mixture for 20-30 minutes. Pat dry before cooking. This is a guarantee for juicy chicken.
