This is a very tasty keto friendly recipe for chicken breasts. The chicken cooks quickly and stays moist.
I purchase chicken breasts from an organic farmer. The breasts are much larger than the ones in my supermarket. You may need to use two small breasts to equal the same amount.
Of course, you could adjust the recipe to cook for more servings. If you have more chicken breasts you may have to brown them in batches. In this case you may not want to multiply the amount of broth.
I usually cook just for myself and the large chicken breast makes 2 meals for me.
