Keto Pizza Chicken Ingredients
- 5 slices thick cut bacon
- 2 pounds chicken thighs, bone-in & skin on
- 4 cloves garlic, sliced
- 2 anchovy fillets, minced (optional)
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 1/2 (28 oz) can of whole tomatoes
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 4-6 basil leaves, sliced
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
Keto Pizza Chicken Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper.
Heat a large oven-proof skillet to medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until desired level of crispiness. Transfer bacon to a paper towel and set aside.
Pan fry chicken
Keeping bacon grease in the skillet, add chicken thighs to the skillet and cook at medium-high heat on both sides until browned (about 7 minutes the first side and 3 minutes the second). Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
Sauté garlic and seasonings
Add garlic, anchovy, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning to the skillet. Sauté for about 1 minute.
Add can canned tomatoes, chicken broth, and basil. Break up whole tomatoes with a spatula. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
Transfer chicken back into the skillet and cook uncovered until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 30 minutes.
Adjust oven temperature to broil. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese all over chicken thighs. Return skillet to the top rack in the oven and broil until cheese is bubbled and melted, about 2 minutes. Top with more basil and bacon before serving.
