We are new to low-carb eating and loved this recipe! It was easy and delicious served over zucchini tortillas. We’ll be keeping this on the menu for sure. Thanks! :)

I don’t eat thighs. Can I make this with chicken breasts?

Your recipes look outstanding but my son must stick to 1500 mg daily of sodium. Is there a reason you do not include sodium counts in your nutrition information?

Oh– I wanted to ask– since you are cutting the thighs into strips, do you use the bone and keep some meat on it or do you pull off all the meat from the bone and discard the bone. I ask because I usually cook either whole chicken or breast or drumstick. I thought people just cooked the whole thigh. Is it hard to cut the raw meat off the raw bone?

You can buy skinless boneless chicken thighs nowadays… but the raw meat is easily cut from a thigh bone too… to me, the extra cost for the skinless boneless is worth not having to do the labor…?
