Keto Paprika Chicken Thigh Bake

Keto Paprika Chicken Thigh Bake

I can’t tell you how many times I have made this delicious Keto Paprika Chicken recipe. What started off as some simple chicken thighs baked in paprika has evolved into a one tray bake bursting with flavour, and paired with tender roasted cauliflower and spicy chorizo.


With a few dollops of greek yoghurt on top, it becomes such a moreish dish that you will fall in love.

Using walnuts adds an extra textural element to the dish, and serving the tray bake on a bed of fresh rocket gets your greens in and provides some freshness from the rich paprika sauce.


I suggest making the sauce first and then marinating the chicken while you prepare the rest of the dish. If you work quickly, this can be on the table in 40 minutes!
