Equipment

  • cast iron skillet
  • tongs

Ingredients
  

  • 2 lb chicken thighs (about 4 thighs) (bone-in, skin-on)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2-3 tbsp Everything Bagel seasoning
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 c chicken broth (plus extra to thin gravy if needed)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Pat chicken thighs very dry with a paper towel and season tops lightly with sea salt. (Remember, the cream cheese is salty.)
  • Heat avocado oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Place chicken thighs skin side down in the oil and cook until skin is browned and crispy, about 7-10 minutes. While the tops are browning, season the bottoms with Everything Bagel seasoning. The chicken will easily release from the pan and not stick when ready to flip.
  • Remove from heat. Flip the thighs, season the tops with Everything Bagel seasoning, and place in the oven, cooking an additional 10-20 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • Set the chicken thighs aside, leaving the juices in the skillet, and melt the softened cream cheese on low heat in the drippings. Once the cheese is melted, slowly add chicken broth until the desired consistency is reached.
  • Place the chicken thighs back in the skillet with the gravy and serve immediately.

Notes

 
A Note on Serving Size: One serving is one chicken thigh. Daily macro goals can vary heavily from person to person depending on whether you’re high fat keto, protein-prioritized keto or just low carb. One chicken thigh is usually enough for me, but my husband always has two. Be sure to plan accordingly and adjust the serving size for your needs.
