A whole barbecued chicken can take a while, and it can be done in some places, and not in others. Use boneless, skinless chicken thighs for a quick and easy take on barbecue chicken. Bonus: use a keto-friendly barbecue sauce, and no one will even guess you are 'going keto!'

  • Season each side of the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Place inner side of each chicken breast on the preheated grill and brush the top of each thigh with 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce. Grill undisturbed for 3 minutes, watching for flare-ups. Move chicken pieces to another part of the grill if flare-ups occur.

  • Turn chicken pieces and brush each side with an additional 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce. Grill, turning the pieces three more times, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 6 minutes per side. Serve with additional sauce.

Tips

Cook's Note:

Allow 2 chicken thighs and 2 tablespoons sauce for each adult serving. I published my recipe for keto barbecue sauce on Allrecipes.
