Keto Italian Chicken
What makes it Italian chicken? I used my favorite combination of Italian herbs to season the chicken. I suggest using fresh herbs for the best flavors, although dried herbs will also work.
My favorite Italian herbs for chicken are oregano, basil, rosemary, garlic, and onion.
Keto Chicken Skewers
Chicken thighs typically don’t need to be marinated as long because they don’t dry out as easily while they cook.
Italian Chicken Skewers
If you use bamboo or wooden skewers and you are going to grill them, soak the skewers in water first. This will prevent them from burning.
For kids, I suggest using Dijon mustard. If you are serving this dip to adults, use spicy brown mustard. That little bit of heat really makes the dip taste so much better.
If you don’t have red wine vinegar, you can use white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar instead. A sweeter vinegar will taste the best in this sauce. Apple cider or white vinegar is too strong.
