The Perfect Keto/Low Carb Irish-Inspired Chicken Dinner
Chicken, leeks, and mushrooms are a couple of my favorite ingredients to cook with – especially as the calendar turns closer to spring, and everyone starts thinking about our favorite recipes to celebrate the Green, White, and Orange – and all things Irish! This dinner is inspired by meals I’ve had while traveling across Ireland and the simple, delicious farm-fresh flavors I love finding across the Emerald Isle.
This easy chicken and leek dinner is the best way to celebrate Irish food if you’re on a low carb or keto diet – since we’re not adding carbs from potatoes or wheat – though this recipe IS amazing with some potatoes tossed in, too.
This super-easy sheet pan dinner is absolutely bursting with flavor – even though all you have to do to prepare it is dump the ingredients on a sheet pan and toss it in the oven!
This easy chicken leek and mushroom dinner is a complete meal on just one pan – with almost no work. You can even dice up some potatoes to bake with the chicken and leeks for a crowd pleasing Irish feast everyone will love. Simply add 1-2 potatoes, rinsed, scrubbed, and cut into small 1-2″ bits to be sure they cook with the chicken.
This easy oven roasted chicken and leek dinner with mushrooms is a delicious dinner the whole family loves – and is perfect to celebrate Saint Patricks day with some deliciously fresh Irish Chicken dinner flavors!
One of my favorite parts of visiting Ireland (Ireland is one of my favorite countries to visit, ever) is all of the food.
Irish food might get a bad rap, but it is fresh, delicious, and simple rustic food that is hearty, comforting, and best of all – easy to make at home!
Tips to Make the Perfect Easy Sheet Pan Oven Roasted Chicken and Leeks Recipe
This roasted chicken and leek dinner is a super easy all-in-one meal – but there are a couple of tips and tricks to ensure perfect, juicy chicken and garlicky, flavor packed leeks that everyone will love!
Make it Easy Clean
This dinner is so wonderful because it’s crazy easy – AND easy to clean! Simply pop down some foil or parchment paper, and chuck the mess in the trash when you’re done – no pots and pans to clean!
Stir Occasionally To Prevent Burning
It’s optional, but I try to stir the dish around a bit as it cooks to make sure the mushrooms and leeks crisp up and cook evenly. Again – this isn’t necessary, but I think it helps the vegetables soften, crisp, and brown better.
Cover, then crisp
Start the recipe off covered, and then remove the foil partway through to cook it without burning the chicken or vegetables for the perfect easy dinner!
