This Keto Mediterranean Chicken Skillet is a quick flavor filled recipe you’ll keep coming back to over and over again! Packed with vegetables, tender chicken, and plenty of garlic and basil, this is one the whole family will love low-carb or not!

Aren’t one pan dinners the best? Low on the mess but high on the flavor you can’t go wrong. I like to serve this dish with a large side salad or some cauliflower rice with an extra squeeze of lemon juice.
