Yield: 10 thighs

Serving Size: 1 to 2 thighs

Juicy low carb chicken thighs smothered in pizza sauce, pepperoni, and mozzarella. This easy one-pan meal will be a hit with your whole family.


2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
10 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
Salt and pepper
1 cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce (make sure it has no added sugar)
2 ounces sliced pepperoni (I like this one from Applegate)
1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded mozzarella


Preheat oven to 350F.

Heat oil in a large 12-inch skillet over medium heat (if it’s a cast-iron skillet, be generous with your oil to avoid sticking). Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt and pepper and to pan. Cook until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Pour pizza sauce over chicken thighs, spreading to coat. Arrange pepperoni over chicken and sprinkle with mozzarella.

Bake 25 minutes, then turn on broiler for a minute or two until cheese is bubbly and browned in spots.


Serves 6 to 8 (about 1 1/2 thighs per serving). For 6 servings, each serving has 2.98 g NET CARBS.
