I came across a really delicious recipe for low-carb garlic chicken  last night.  I thought I would share it with you.  It’s actually very simple and can be made in about half an hour.  The main ingredient is garlic and I also used chicken thighs.  The recipe calls for lemon and I didn’t have any on hand so I simply added a squeeze of lemon juice.  I served it as a side dish with a green salad.  It’s terrific!

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (225 degrees Celsius).

  2. Place the chicken drumsticks in a baking pan that has been liberally greased with butter or oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Over the chicken pieces, drizzle the lemon juice and olive oil. Garlic and parsley should be sprinkled on top.

  4. Bake for 30–40 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and the garlic slices have become brown, or until the internal temperature reaches at least 165°F (74°C). If your drumsticks are bigger, the baking time may be extended. If your drumsticks are becoming too dark, decrease the temperature towards the end of the baking period.
