Keto Cajun Chicken Recipe

Keto Cajun Chicken Recipe

This keto cajun chicken recipe was made with a jar of cajun butter marinade that I received from one of my neighbors. Not knowing what to expect, I initially used the marinade to make a quick Cajun Grilled Tilapia. Well, that turned out to be a real hit with the family member I shared it with. So, I looked forward to using this marinade to make this keto cajun chicken recipe.

With the marinade, you only need 3 more ingredients. I used boneless chicken thighs because they are naturally moist and tenderize easily.  In addition to the cajun butter marinade, I added minced garlic, minced yellow onions, and cayenne powder. The minced garlic was from a jar, but the minced yellow onions were freshly chopped. And lastly, cayenne pepper was added to the marinade.

As mentioned, I received a free jar of the Louisiana Cajun Butter Marinade from one of my neighbors the other day. So, I do not know if it is available a most local grocery stores. I have included a link for you to purchase it online if needed. The Zatarain’s Cayenne Pepper was at my local grocery store.
