Keto Korean BBQ Marinated Chicken


Now you guys didn’t think we would have a Korean BBQ series without throwing in a chicken recipe in there, did ya!?  So to take care of that, here is the latest addition to our Keto Korean BBQ series, Korean BBQ Marinated Chicken!  This is the same marinade used in the Short Ribs and the Bulgogi, so if you like those, you will definitely like this one!

For this recipe, we use chicken thighs which are packed with fats and oils that provide a nice juicy chicken on the grill and is also readily available at any supermarket at a much more affordable price them short ribs (about 1/4 of the price per pound). 

We actually BBQ chicken a lot more than the Short Ribs for this exact reason.  But then again, when we throw together a Keto Korean BBQ at home, we usually make Short Ribs, Bulgogi, and Marinated Chicken all together and call it a low-carb/keto BBQ feast!

So next time you fire up that grill, we recommend you do the same and have a KBBQ feast in your own backyard!

For this recipe, we provided two ways you can cook the meat.  The preferred method would be on a BBQ to infuse the smoke flavors inside the meat, however if you don’t have a BBQ at home, you can also pan fry it. 

Either way, you’ll get the sweet & salty classic KBB taste at only ~3g net carbs per serving!

For this dish, the special ingredients you would need are Soy Sauce, Swerve/Monkfruit, Sesame Oil and Toasted Sesame Seeds.  You can get these ingredients on Amazon or at a local Asian supermarket.

Now, let’s get cooking!

  1. Can I substitute coconut aminos or tamari for the soy? Also, I’ve noticed your receipts don’t include nutritional information or am I missing it?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Linda! I’ve never tried any of our recipes with coconut aminos or tamari, but others have so I’m sure it would work just fine. Might alter the taste, but shouldn’t dramatically change the profiles.

      As for the nutritional information, we don’t pay for the program that does this because they are often inaccurate when calculating up Asian/Japanese ingredients. Hope that helps!
