The Best Keto Creamed Spinach With Chicken Thighs
A Plate Full of Deliciousness
This recipe is for the best keto creamed spinach with chicken thighs. The reason we’ve named it like this, is because it truly is the best recipe around. Firstly, it contains chicken thighs, rather than breasts, which are packed full of extra nutrients and flavors. It also contains cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream and parmesan cheese. These are perfect for giving the dish a rich taste that is completely unique. Finally, the avocado oil, chopped spinach and tomatoes (we used 1 can of Mild Rotel) keeps this dish feeling fresh. It also adds an additional lighter flavor to the cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream.
This recipe is very basic to make. All that’s involved is seasoning and frying the chicken until it’s cooked and then mixing all the ingredients in the pan until the spinach has thawed and wilted. How easy does that sound?!? And because it’s so quick, this meal is perfect for treating yourself to on a weeknight when all you want to do is watch the flat screen.
As this recipe even feeds six adults, it’s perfect for families. Whatever appetite your children have, there’s enough to keep everyone happy. If there’s lots left over, don’t worry, this is an added bonus. It can be packed in a tightly sealed container and as long as it is kept in a cool bag, this meal is perfect for taking as a packed lunch.
Not only will you love this recipe, but your body will too. It contains 32 grams of protein, which is a good quantity to keep any size of tummy happy. It’s also a great recipe for keto lovers (hence the name of our website!) as it contains a massive 56 grams of fat. This means it’s absolutely incredible for keeping your macros in check.
Keto fans can continue rejoicing, as can Atkins followers and those on a low carbohydrate diet. This is because the recipe contains 8 grams of carbs, which is great for keeping hidden sugars out of your body. Finally, the recipe has 748 calories. This may sound like a lot, but it’s because it’s full of nutrition that keeps your body functioning correctly. Trust us, it’s better to eat a high-calorie meal that is full of important ingredients, than eat low-cal rubbish that doesn’t do anything to keep your metabolism running nicely. Goes awesome with our Keto Fried Rice.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil. Season both sides of the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Add the chicken thighs to the skillet skin side down, and cover with a splatter guard, if desired.
When the chicken skin is crispy and releases from the pan, flip them to the other side. Let cook until an internal temperature thermometer reads 165F. Remove from pan onto a plate and set aside. Pour out any grease that is left in the pan.
In the same skillet over medium heat, add the bacon then cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, and stir to combine. Add the spinach and stir until thawed. Finally, add the Rotel and parmesan and stir until the parmesan is melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
You can add the chicken back to the skillet with the creamed spinach, or you can go ahead and serve the chicken on plates with a big spoonful of the creamy spinach.
