Crispy low-carb chicken with thyme

Servings per container: 4


  • 4 to 5 chicken drum bones and skin or 2 pairs of chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper
  • About 400 g of cherry tomatoes
  • 5-6 fresh thyme branches
  • Optional: 1 lemon (Mayer type) cut into slices


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Rub 1 tablespoon chicken oil, salt and pepper.

Heat a small saucepan (or a cast iron skillet) on a plate over medium heat and add the remaining oil. Fry the chicken on the skin for 15 minutes until the fat has melted.

Turn off the heat, add the tomatoes cut in half and mix with the fat released by the chicken. Rotate the chicken pieces so that the skin is facing up.

Arrange the lemon slices (if you decide to add this ingredient) and the thyme sprigs on top of the chicken, and place the pan in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with roasted (or steamed) broccoli, lettuce or cabbage salad.
